Video Consolidation Platform provides new business opportunities for service providers and dramatically reduces network complexity and costs
Edgeware, the leader in video delivery networks, today announces it has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Edition, an operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable. Edgeware was recognized as a finalist in the Cable & Video Network Architecture category for its innovative Video Consolidation Platform (VCP).
Edgeware’s VCP is a single, consolidated platform that dramatically reduces the high infrastructure costs associated with the delivery of TV and video services to both set-top boxes (STBs) and multiscreen devices. The VCP reduces CAPEX by at least 50 percent by enabling operators to efficiently deliver new and current services at massive scale to all device types, without the need for duplicate, siloed delivery networks. The VCP builds on Edgeware’s widely deployed Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) solution, which already provides best-in-class caching and streaming to over 10 million viewers worldwide.
“Edgeware is here to offer the most efficient, scalable and flexible video infrastructures on the market. We developed our VCP to meet operators’ needs to dramatically cut costs and increase service agility in order to stay on top in today’s quickly evolving and highly competitive TV space,” said Joachim Roos, CEO at Edgeware. “Being named a finalist for the Fierce Innovation Awards is a strong recognition of our innovative approach to consolidated video delivery, which is key in supporting our customers’ strategies to monetize video.”
Finalists’ applications were judged by an exclusive carrier-only panel of executives from AT&T, CableLabs, Cablevision System Corporation, Comcast, Cox Communications, Inc., Orange, Sprint, TeliaSonera International Carrier, and Verizon.
