Today, Internet video consumption is exploding, driven by services like YouTube, Netflix and HBO, across all types of broadband networks, including both fixed and mobile. At the same time, consumers are looking for better Quality of Experience (QoE). To respond, operators are rolling out next-generation broadband architectures based on Network Functions Virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (NFV/SDN) and are looking to embed content delivery capabilities into their last-mile networks. PeerApp is now delivering the next-generation content delivery solution to both a multitude of small service providers as well as to Global Tier 1 Communications Service Providers (CSPs).
