The resale agreement between the two companies is targeted at large businesses, as well as Internet service providers (ISPs) and network service providers. Customers now have a one-stop-shop for digital media delivery, RealNetworks said in a news release.
RealSystem iQ is used to broadcast audio and video over the Internet or a company intranet. The software supports over 45 media types, from RealNetworks' own RealVideo and RealAudio formats to Apple Computer Inc.'s QuickTime.
Cisco's content networking devices are intended to allow fast access to any kind of Web content; the product portfolio includes routers, switches and edge delivery devices.
