Open caching workflows

Build out a network of open caching servers using Velocix's standards-based implementation. Connect your edge servers with content provider networks and global CDN services to start caching OTT video streaming content and generating new recurring revenue as stream counts grow.

Open caching server

In open caching architectures, high-performance servers are used to cache and stream internet-based content. These caching servers or "nodes" are typically installed deep at the edge of ISP networks to shorten the distance between the streaming server and the end-user. Because open caching nodes are located much closer in proximity to consumers than is possible with traditional over-the-top delivery methods, there is a reduced risk of network congestion or rebuffering delays, which results in better quality streams.


Open caching request router

Advanced request routing software negotiates inbound content requests and directs traffic to the optimal caching node based on a variety of factors, including cache proximity, health status, current utilisation, and more. Request routing is performed according to the methods defined in published open caching standards.


Open caching controller


The open caching controller manages the communication of configuration, content placement, lifecycle management, logging, and security data with third-party systems. The controller is used to connect the open caching systems deployed within ISP networks with other compatible content delivery systems, including those operated by content providers or global CDN services. This enables ISP-based open caches to participate in the video distribution chain for internet-based content services.
