Network 10, a major Australian television network, faced a significant challenge in delivering a seamless live stream of the Melbourne Cup, Australia's premier horse race and the network's biggest sporting event. The race is not only broadcast on free-to-air television but also offered as a live stream from the company’s website. The challenge was to ensure uninterrupted delivery of the live stream at a time when traffic levels reach the highest point of the year. The selection of the underlying platform was critical to achieving this. Network 10 aimed to provide a first-class experience to all viewers, with top-quality audio and video delivered without interruption or buffering. The network also needed to prepare for any spontaneous spikes in traffic and troubleshoot any issues that may arise during the event.
