QoE is key to the delivery and profitability of a video based service, and content distribution is key to QoE. Distributing the caching and streaming of video content in the network enables higher and more deterministic video quality by removing network congestion and reducing round-trip delays.
Edgeware´s Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) technology, architecture and products can help to solve some of the most difficult and complex problems of high quality video and tv delivery across any network topology, whether it is a TV through a set top box service in a managed IPTV network or delivering to a wide variety of devices in a multiscreen over the top (OTT) environment. The Edgeware D-VDN offers efficient solutions to a range of QoE related issues, including Quality Assurance in adaptive streaming environments, Fast Channel Change, and Retransmission.
