Tap into the OTT streaming value chain
Monetise your last-mile network by carrying over-the-top (OTT) stream traffic "through-the-middle" of your own CDN. Establish commercial agreements with global content providers interested in scaling out their own internet-based streaming services. Generate value by delivering superior quality streams, reducing session start-up times, and virtually eliminating rebuffering. Capitalise on your existing network investments and start benefitting from the skyrocketing demand for online streaming services.
Open caching specifications provide fixed and mobile internet service providers (ISPs) with a way to participate in the value chain associated with over-the-top (OTT) video stream delivery.
Today's online streaming providers spend billions of dollars with global content delivery networks (CDNs) to distribute their content to consumers around the world. But as consumer demand for content rises, streaming providers face ballooning content delivery expenses. Many are interested in finding more cost-effective ways to distribute content, as well as ways to improve stream quality, by establishing relationships directly with ISPs.
Open caching specifications form the basis for establishing business deals between ISPs and online streaming companies. The standards define how to interconnect different content delivery technologies so content can be streamed more efficiently across networks. Since ISPs own the most critical link in the network chain, the last-mile network that connects consumers to the internet, they are well-positioned to cut out the middleman and capture some of the revenue content providers currently spend with global CDN services.
Click the button below to learn how ISPs can grow revenues by monetising the growing amount of OTT video traffic that is already traversing their last-mile networks.
Enable your network to communicate with other content delivery systems using open caching standards published by the Streaming Video Alliance. Open caching specifications define an open framework enabling internet-based content to be cached at the edge of ISP networks. Velocix's implementation of open caching specifications supports:

|Improvement of the overall streaming experience|
|Higher stream bit rates and video resolution|
|Less rebuffering and faster session start-up times|
|Reduced traffic peering and network costs|
|Visibility and exchange of viewer consumption data|
