By any measure, consumers are watching more video with more screens than ever before. Mobile devices both in the home and on the go that make consuming video simple are creating a tidal wave of data. For network owners, the trend of traffic growing faster than revenue is accelerating and putting enormous pressure on existing content delivery networks (CDNs).
At IBC 2012 in Amsterdam, Cisco unveiled its expanded and enhanced CDN portfolio, branded as the Cisco Videoscape™ Distribution Suite (VDS). Cisco VDS, which encompasses eight different products serves as the network distribution engine behind the Videoscape architecture and is a complete, interoperable and holistic solution that bridges cloud and network functionality.
Cisco Product Manager Eli Fuchs discusses VDS and the resulting features and functionality it brings to providers across the video ecosystem.
