IP video streaming technology provider Velocix has introduced a new mobile-optimised content delivery network (CDN) software devised to alleviate the common pain points wireless operators face when scaling out 5G video applications.
It says its multi-tier CDN delivery and inter-cache communications technology can reduce traffic demands over mobile backhaul networks by as much as 30%.
“5G video viewership is expected to surge 100-fold over the next few years, placing unprecedented scaling demands on wireless network operators,” said Jim Brickmeier, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Velocix. “Our mobile-optimised CDN technology more efficiently routes and delivers video traffic over IP and wireless networks. This results in less network congestion, improved video quality, and a reduced need for costly infrastructure upgrades to support the rising tide of 5G viewing devices.”
The software is also compatible with multi-access edge computing (MEC) systems, allowing elastically scalable caches to be deployed closer to consumers, at the periphery of 5G radio access networks (RANs).
