NDI and CDN capabilities in Teams meetings

Will Microsoft maintain external NDI capability and ensure global CDN capabilities for video heavy meetings?

HI Brett, we don't plan to get rid of NDI. What are you looking at for CDN ? eCDN is supported for Live Events. With View Only meetings those are distributed using CDN, but the View Only meeting experience does not support eCDN providers at this time. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/view-only-meeting-experience
I'm asking this on behalf of another colleague. Will Microsoft "eventually" be using variable bit rate streaming for Teams live events or will the platform use a "lowest common denominator" bit rate on a longer term basis?
Live Events today uses adaptive bitrate streaming profiles, we don't use a lowest common denominator approach today with out CDN. As noted you can also add an eCDN to help with bandwidth management for corporate locations.
