OTT and IPTV software solutions provider Anevia will bring its complete OTT video-delivery system to Broadcast Asia 2019, including its next release for the APAC market: version 5.0 of the NEA-CDN cloud-native content delivery network solution.
The solution enables TV channel operators to deploy their own CDNs while using its capacity to deliver high-quality services. The NEA-CDN 5.0 was recently selected by the Indonesian media group MNC Group to expand MCN Now, its OTT Platform.
Anevia’s NEA-CDN product manager David Tencer said: “Our customers have expressed a strong need for a flexible infrastructure that enables them to scale up and down as traffic demands fluctuate. We have integrated advanced future-proof technologies to create a long-awaited solution that meets this requirement. Many operators generally use only 6% of their available CDN capacity so 94% is only used during peak traffic times. NEA-CDN 5.0 enables operators to cut such waste while still meeting peak traffic requirements, by scaling their infrastructure up or down as demand changes. Operators can now get their OTT services to market quickly because all the components are fully integrated and proven to deliver ultra-low latency and high quality.”
Anevia CTO and co-founder, Damien Lucas, adds: “NEA-CDN 5.0 is supplied as a Docker container orchestrated through the Kubernetes container management system. It allows OTT operators to scale thier service up and down by using virtualised resources over a public or private cloud infrastructure. There are several benefits to this approach. Scaling the service, for temporary or permanent requirements, can be carried out literally within minutes. Setting up a private cloud infrastructure for an OTT operator’s mainstream traffic and adding external cloud resources on the fly ahead of sports events that are likely to generate high viewing peaks becomes a valid strategy. Using a container model also means it is no longer necessary to set up separate servers for the CDN and other processes. Operators can run their applications separately over the same private or public cloud infrastructure, within orchestrated containers.”
