Windows Media Services enables you to create highly available and scalable systems. It helps ensure that your systems are always available and can support multiple processors and larger amounts of memory. Thus, it makes an excellent platform for large-scale streaming media delivery. One of the largest areas of potential growth for streaming media is the delivery of digital media content to wireless devices, such as cellular phones, handheld PCs, and laptop computers.
The Fast Recovery feature of Windows Media Services uses forward error correction to support streaming over wireless networks such as wireless local area networks (LANs), satellite connections, and mobile devices.
