The Challenge

With a view to ensuring its customers receive the highest quality entertainment experience, TELUS sought to upgrade and expand its content delivery network to allow further scaling out of its services, with a larger number of subscribers able to access 4K/UHD and HD multiscreen entertainment. 

The solution

Velocix’s on-net, carrier-grade CDN application has been deployed alongside its Origin and Video Recording Management software by TELUS. This video platform provides an open audio/video pipeline capability to allow easy interoperability with multiple middleware and DRM providers.

The licensed CDN incorporates advanced edge request routing technology to more efficiently service stream requests. This CDN architecture also preserves valuable network bandwidth and reduces related infrastructure costs.

Velocix’s high-performance streaming and intelligent caching software is being used by TELUS to deliver residential and commercial services to millions of consumers across Canada on TVs, mobile devices, and other internet connected screens.
