Reduced Bandwidth Costs
Open caching minimizes the number of times video titles are delivered from the content provider sites, which substantially reduces the total volume of data crossing the transit links. Popular, frequently viewed videos are identified, stored, and delivered to subscribers from within the network.
As the overall volume of OTT video traffic traversing the service provider network decreases, network conditions improve dramatically even during peak consumption periods. This improves performance for all other bandwidth-sensitive non-cacheable network traffic, applications, and services, and non-cached video content.
Operators can achieve substantial CAPEX savings by drastically reducing the amount of infrastructure investment needed to support the rapid growth in bandwidth demand. By leveraging open caching for video delivery, service providers can prepare their networks for the future of online video.
Operators can ensure a quality, immersive experience every time by delivering video from close proximity to the subscriber. With an open caching solution, high quality video is always delivered in the original content provider fidelity, without the pesky disruptions, lengthy download times, and control response delays.
