Velocix introduces open operator-level caching


Cambridge, UK, December 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Video streaming and advertising technology provider Velocix has announced the launch of an open carrier-level caching platform that enables broadband providers to further monetize the delivery of content over the Internet over their last -miles data networks.

Velocix’s solution introduces control plane software enhancements that allow ISP networks to communicate with other open caching compliant content delivery systems, including those operated by content providers and CDN services global. This allows open caching servers that are placed deep at the edge of ISP last mile networks to cache and deliver content on behalf of content providers in exchange for a fee. Because ISPs can position open caching servers much closer to end users than is possible with standard OTT delivery, they can dramatically improve video quality, reduce session startup times, and virtually eliminate the flow rebuff.

To improve flexibility and efficiency, private CDN and open caching services can share the same underlying hardware infrastructure.
