QoE-based In-Stream CDN Switching offers real-time QoE monitoring and instant CDN switching in one combined service.
By monitoring session data in real time, it immediately detects any drops in bitrate requested by the client and will automatically select and switch to another CDN for the delivery of the next segment in the stream. Orchestrating the multi-CDN environment and providing a unified view of the CDNs’ performance, it ensures that the best CDN is used and that the content is routed through the optimal delivery path to the end viewer.
You can set the switching rules that best fulfills your business policies and select the delivery path optimized for your particular region or content. Edgeware’s powerful AST capability is part of the QoE-based In-Stream CDN Switching service and uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology and machine-learning to process the session data from the ongoing streams.
The QoE-based In-Stream CDN Switching is a server-side solution and inserts itself in the control plane between the client and the CDN, offering a true client and CDN agnostic solution.
