Velocix quadruples CDN stream density, lowering IP video scale-out costs
March 9, 2020
Velocix, a provider of carrier-grade IP video streaming solutions, has announced new ultra-high density CDN edge caching software that delivers up to four times the streaming output of previous server generations.
The company’s latest software release has been optimised to run on commercial-off-the-shelf reference platforms featuring AMD chips and solid state NVMe drives, substantially reducing the amount of hardware required to scale-out IPTV and OTT video services delivered to consumers over wireline and 5G wireless networks.
“With traditional video subscribers increasingly transitioning to new multi-screen IP video services, network operators are facing complex scaling challenges that will continue to intensify as stream demand and mobile viewership over 5G networks flourishes,” said Craig Sinasac, VP Development and Technology at Velocix. “Our software is carefully tuned to supercharge the capabilities of the foundational hardware platform to maximise stream density and CDN efficiency, resulting in a richer return on investment for our customers.”
Velocix has already received a large order for the new CDN software from a top tier multiple systems operator (MSO) that is significantly expanding its IP streaming services in multiple countries this year. Many of the largest and most successful service providers throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia, including Vodafone, Liberty Global, Telefonica and T-Mobile, use Velocix technology to power their premium IP video service offerings.
Velocix will showcase its new carrier-grade video streaming technology, along with its programmatic TV advertising solution and managed services offering, at the upcoming NAB 2020 show in Las Vegas, Nevada (April 19-22 2020, booth – Renaissance, Deluxe-B).
