Jet-Stream revamps CDN range

Dutch video delivery specialist Jet-Stream has updated its product line and introduced a new version of its flagship media delivery network management solution, along with a completely new and more affordable Content Delivery Network (CDN) solution, and a new unified media server.

VideoExchange 10.7, the latest version of its top-of-the-line media delivery network management solution, is focused on advanced HTTP adaptive streaming technologies and adds exclusive new features to improve manageability, performance and availability of Apple HLS, Adobe HDS, Microsoft Smooth and MPEG DASH technologies.

Jet-Stream reports that the latest version of VideoExchange is being deployed in one of the largest telecom operators in the world, and is also being deployed to replace the existing Telenor CDN, while Jet-Stream’s existing licensed and managed customers are going to upgrade to v10l.7 and extend their contracts.

The all-new CDN solution is a high-performance caching and DNS based system called Jet-Stream WebAcceleration, which fully supports retail and wholesale usage and helps content providers hosting providers, telecom operators and CDN operators to offload their web and HTTP streaming platforms, to reduce costs and to monetize CDN services.

The NGINX-powered solution is fully web-based manageable and dynamically auto provisions updates to caches and DNS servers, and Jet-Stream comments that it will be priced “very aggressively”.

Jet-Stream WebAcceleration is going to be deployed in one of the largest telecom operators in the world and can run standalone or side by side with the Jet-Stream VideoExchange solution.

The final product launch is an OpenCDN Appliance codenamed ‘project EscapeVelocity’ – a next-generation unified media server which delivers 20Gbps performance whilst consuming less than 60watt at peak.

The OpenCDN appliance natively runs all popular delivery technologies including NGINX, Wowza Media Server, Adobe FMiS, Internet Information Server, Windows Media Services, Apache and many others.

Billed as a major upgrade of the unified Jet-Stream XL media server with added tuning and acceleration enhancements, Jet-Streams states that pricing will be above existing vendor solutions: “premium means premium”.

The Jet-Stream OpenCDN Appliance will be also be made available as a very aggressively priced open components system so CDN operators can use COTS components to minimise costs in the delivery layer.
