Meet The Open Edge Cloud
A new generation of content and applications requires a new
Application and Content Delivery in the 2000's
Driving down to the local Blockbuster to get a DVD of "A Beautiful Mind" while Nickleback is blasting "This is How You Remind Me" on your stereo. That pretty much sums up app delivery in the early 2000s a.k.a the age of the DVD
Application and Content Delivery in the 2010's
Streaming is the new king - the millenial generation snickers at the thought of physical media like DVDs. Tape cassette players are mistaken for iPhone chargers. Video content is avaiable to stream wherever you may be (even on airplanes) and on any device you want to watch it on.
Application and Content Delivery in the 2020's
Video, VR, AR
It's not only video anymore but a new generation of a fully immersive visual and audio experience. 360 degree videos, inside the movie virtual reality and you control the ending stories - all streamed at mind blowing resolutions.
SERVICE PROVIDER EDGE CLOUD
Open Edge Cloud
The service providers' solution for two critical problems... Speed and Scale
It’s all about latency – applications like VR and AR require minimal lag to convince your mind that you’re in another place – also known as Presence.
Today we have
70MSEC average latency in North American mobile networks
We all hate waiting for stuff to happen, especially with crucial aspects of the internet. We also like trivial things to just... work!
This graph highlights some of the key latency metrics required by the applications of today's and tomorrow's.
How far away are you?
Latency also matters for video. It matters a lot. The reason - latency impacts TCP. The higher the lag, the lower the TCP window and the thinner the pipe over which you can stream video. High latency means you simply cannot stream 4K, no matter how much you compress the video or optimize the TCP stack.
Today we have
