Verivue Extends OneVantage Carrier CDN Platform with Transparent CachingCombined technologies provide carriers ability to address both managed and unmanaged content
November 17, 2011
Verivue, Inc., a leading authority and innovator in the fast growing field of digital content delivery, today extended its OneVantage(TM) content delivery solution with the announcement of a software add-on for Transparent Caching.
OneVantage(TM) is the first and only solution that offers both carrier CDN and transparent caching in a single unified platform. The integration of these two functions helps streamline network operations while reducing deployment cost. Now intelligent caches deployed strategically throughout the CDN network can serve dual-purpose as a Transparent Cache, reducing the network infrastructure and bandwidth costs associated with ‘over the top’ (OTT) content.
“With the rapid growth of both managed and unmanaged content, operators are faced with solving both problems independently,” said Jim Dolce, CEO of Verivue. “This first-of-a-kind, fully integrated platform consolidates support for both ‘over-the-top’ and conventional managed content in a comprehensive, software based solution. For the first time, the significant cost savings and enhanced Quality of Experience (QoE) typically associated with Transparent Caches can be combined with the revenue generation and new service benefits of a CDN.”
Unlike traditional CDNs, which only store content based on business agreements, a Transparent Cache automatically intercepts, ingests and serves content as it becomes popular, without the need for ongoing operator intervention. Operators can cache and deliver popular content close to subscribers, thus reducing the amount of transit traffic across their networks.
“By offering the Transparent Cache as a simple software add-on to its OneVantage(TM) CDN platform, Verivue has taken the complexity out of managing over the top (OTT) content while providing a viable method for decreasing peering costs,” said Jeff Heynen, Directing Analyst, Broadband Access and Video, Infonetics. “Verivue has set a new bar for all other CDN platform providers to follow.”
“Network operators are constantly seeking new ways to monetize their content offerings while simultaneously managing the rising costs of bandwidth-hungry over the top content,” said Ron Westfall, Research Director, Service Provider Infrastructure. “Verivue’s comprehensive approach to content delivery can solve both problems together, allowing operators to develop a unified content distribution strategy rather than relying on an assortment of discrete solutions that can prove difficult to manage.”
The OneVantage Transparent Internet Cache option is available now through certified resellers in the Verivue Partner Network and directly from Verivue.
