The company says it provides telco, cable and mobile operators with real-time scalability for mission-critical, high-demand live video streaming services. It’s already been deployed by at least one mobile network operator to deliver live sports content through a multi-CDN approach.
The Software as a Service enables operators to achieve unparalleled scale, decrease costs, and improve quality-of-experience for live video streaming and on-demand content.
“The biggest challenge with live video streaming is being able to handle the unexpected peaks in viewership, especially during premium events,” said Shahar Bar, senior vice president, Video Business, at Harmonic. “This new access network capability for our VOS offerings provides operators with the ultimate trifecta for live premium-quality video streaming: immediate scalability, critical reliability and smart, flexible pricing models. It’s essentially an insurance policy for live video delivery and an exclusive capability not achievable with other business-as-usual solutions.”
By running multiple delivery paths operators are able to scale rapidly while supporting the quality demands of premium live video streaming.
