Service Provider Information Technology, or SPIT, is Light Reading's term for the evolving set of non-traditional telecom (and data networking) technologies that allow for a greater degree of flexibility in the creation, management, delivery, and monetization of new-generation communications services.
What exactly is Service Provider IT and how does it relate to the communications ecosystem? Here's a graphic that'll give you a snapshot of what we're talking about and appeal to your inherent aesthetic sensibilities
What is SPIT, why is it 'hot stuff' and how does it relate to the major challenges facing communications service providers today? The updated SPIT Manifesto answers these questions and achieves the near impossible task of giving a slime green splat a happy home.
For operators looking to develop, deliver and monetize new services, run their companies more efficiently and provide an overall better experience for their customers, Service Provider IT, or SPIT, is just as important as the network.
LONDON -- Edgeware, the technology leader in distributed video delivery, today released the latest multiscreen version of the Edgeware Distributed Video Delivery Network (D-VDN) Solution. The new release includes intelligent session and content management options that enable increased savings in backhaul costs when delivering large back-catalogues, catch-up TV or network PVR services. It also includes new, advanced monitoring features to enable true, real-time analytics, even when delivering adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming to millions of simultaneous devices.
The Edgeware D-VDN Solution now includes options to intelligently distribute content and client requests over multiple servers in a content-aware cluster. The storage in each clustered server is effectively combined, increasing the cache hit rate and avoiding use of the back haul network for cache-misses. Content needs to only be ingested once to each cluster, further reducing backhaul load. Assets can also be distributed intelligently over multiple clusters to build a caching hierarchy; requests for the most popular assets are sent to the edge clusters and longer-tail request are served directly from centralized clusters to further enhance edge cache-hit efficiency.
