With the 5G infrastructure bandwagon still rolling across the world, multiscreen video software provider Velocix has launched mobile-optimised content delivery network (CDN) software designed to alleviate common pain points operators face when scaling out 5G video applications.

Velocix 5G CDN 31March2020The company’s products and services are claimed to reduce the complexity that operators face in launching and supporting multiscreen video platforms. Its new multi-tier CDN delivery and inter-cache communications technology is said to be able to reduce traffic demands over mobile backhaul networks by as much as 30%.

Furthermore, the new software is also compatible with multi-access edge computing (MEC) systems, allowing elastically scalable caches to be deployed closer to consumers, at the periphery of 5G radio access networks (RANs).

5G video viewership is expected to surge 100-fold over the next few years, placing unprecedented scaling demands on wireless network operators,” explained Velocix chief product and marketing officer Jim Brickmeier. “Our mobile-optimised CDN technology more efficiently routes and delivers video traffic over IP and wireless networks. This results in less network congestion, improved video quality, and a reduced need for costly infrastructure upgrades to support the rising tide of 5G viewing devices.”
