Velocix Introduces Mobile-Optimised CDN Software For 5G Video Streaming Applications

Velocix, UK based provider of CDN (Content Delivery Network) technology, has introduced CDN software optimized for mobile networks to help cellular operators scale up their fixed backhaul networks to cope with the expected surge in traffic generated by emerging upgrades to 5G.

The company has claimed that the new multi-tier CDN delivery and inter-cache communications software can reduce traffic over mobile backhaul networks by 30%. The firm also asserts that this latest software is compatible with multi-access edge computing (MEC) systems, allowing elastically scalable caches to be deployed closer to consumers, at the periphery of the 5G radio access networks (RANs), or cells.

The firm singled out video as the principal driver both of 5G itself and the likely associated deluge in mobile traffic. “5G video viewership is expected to surge 100-fold over the next few years, placing unprecedented scaling demands on wireless network operators,” said Jim Brickmeier, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Velocix. “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.”
