Edgeware’s new Video Consolidation Platform (VCP) is a highly accelerated and consolidated platform that dramatically reduces the high infrastructure costs associated with the delivery of next-generation TV and video services. The VCP consists of the VCP Edge CDN solution, and the VCP Origin.
The VCP is made up of two main components, closely integrated to form a coherent and integrated architecture: the Orbit Hardware and the Convoy Management Software.
The Convoy Management Software
The distributed asset propagation, delivery and management system at the heart of the Edgeware VCP. It provides the interconnection system between the individual distributed servers that enable them to become a complete video delivery system.
The Orbit Hardware Platform
The Orbit delivery servers offer advanced capabilities for both retail and wholesale video and TV services across an operator´s network, irrespective of topology and core network bandwidth. The Orbit hardware is designed to build highly distributed delivery architectures with a small 1U form factor and minimal power consumption, reducing the costs of power and cooling per stream by up to 90%.
