Edgeware's D-VDN System Selected by Ziggo
By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor
Edgeware, a company that deals in distributed video delivery, recently announced that its Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) system has been selected by Ziggo (News - Alert), a renowned cable operator in the Netherlands. Managed by the Convoy VDN software suite, the D-VDN system from Edgeware enables Ziggo to provide multiscreen services to its Internet subscribers.
Convoy VDN (Video Delivery Network) System provides one of the two main elements to Edgeware´s Distributed Video Delivery Network Architecture. Convoy VDN allows an operator to manage a retail based video delivery network across any network topology, provide advanced video services such as nPVR, and also to offer a wholesale video delivery capability to content providers.
The solution ensures integration of wholesale CDN management and video delivery systems allows analysis and management of video stream quality in complex HTTP adaptive streaming environments. Moreover, it enables efficient use of network resources through fully automated popularity based content propagation.
"When we launched the Convoy VDN software suite this time last year, we immediately saw great interest from major operators requiring highly flexible, scalable solutions that could be implemented on accelerated timelines," said Joachim Roos, CEO at Edgeware. "Ziggo's rapid deployment of an innovative and competitive service offering for multiscreen customers shows their relentless commitment to success in a highly competitive and fast moving market."
Recently, Edgeware introduced enhancements to its Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) system. Via live customer and product demos and presentations, Edgeware shows how its unique intuitively scalable system simplifies distributed video delivery and enables operators to take a converged approach.
With operators continuing to build out multiscreen networks on top of IPTV (News - Alert) infrastructures, there is an increasing demand for an IPTV and multiscreen converged architecture. Edgeware is leading this trend demonstrating how live production systems enable operators to manage retail based video delivery networks across multiple network topologies and offer advanced services such as nPVR and multiscreen applications.
