STOCKHOLM -- Edgeware, the leader in video delivery networks, today announces that Cincinnati Bell Inc. has deployed its Video Consolidation Platform (VCP), including its highly-optimized CDN caching and distribution capabilities. The VCP delivers advanced network-based VOD and time-shift services, including catch-up and start-over TV, while enhancing existing live IPTV services with dramatically improved channel change times. Edgeware enables Cincinnati Bell to deliver these services to both set-top boxes (STB) and the latest generation multiscreen devices from a single, consolidated platform.
“We’re continually working to exceed our customers’ expectations in this fast-changing space,” said Tom Simpson, Cincinnati Bell’s chief technology officer. “Edgeware’s VCP solution will help us further enhance the customer experience.”
Edgeware’s VCP dramatically reduces the high infrastructure costs associated with advanced video services by eliminating the need to manage duplicate networks and equipment. The VCP’s powerful and lean infrastructure also enables lower operating costs associated with maintenance, power consumption and the need for physical space.
The scalability of the deployed solution will enable Cincinnati Bell to rapidly increase the traffic from new services without re-architecture or complex upgrades.
