Part of delivering a great video experience means getting content as quickly to end users as possible. But when ISPs have to backhaul content from the public Internet, or CDNs, it adds time, and increases the potential for network delivery problems. Open Caching is a revolutionary new streaming architecture designed to provide localized caching resources within the operator network that interoperates with CDN caches and content owner origins. In this panel, you’ll learn what Open Caching is, the benefits, and, more importantly, listen to a lively discussion about some of the challenges that have to be addressed to make Open Caching a reality.

Topics Covered

This webinar will address (or addressed) the following:

  1. What are the components of an open caching architecture? What does an operator, like Verizon or Comcast, have to implement in order to take advantage of this?
  2. What kind of results have you seen from the first phase of the POC? What is the impact on latency of using the Open Caching nodes in an operator network?
  3. What is the next step for the POC? What does Phase 2 look like and how do interested companies get involved?
  4. Will the Streaming Video Alliance be developing the APIs and getting them into Github or is the organization relying on other companies to do that?
