The industry leader in cloud-based streaming technology, Octoshape is collaborating with Juniper Networks (News - Alert) to develop an integrated technology that provides the foundation for Broadband TV with the cost efficiency and quality of broadcast TV.
This new technology showcase is hosted from OpenLab, a New Jersey-based Juniper Networks’ Junos Center for Innovation, which paves the way for a collaborative environment for customers, academia and partners of the company to learn and develop new network-integrated software applications.
The integrated technology showcase, developed by Octoshape in collaboration with Juniper Networks, integrates the formers’ Infinite HD-M Federated Multicast Platform and Juniper’s MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers to develop both Automatic Multicast Tunneling and native Multicast.
The high-performance HD-M solution from Octoshape has been developed for high-definition Internet video, and is in production since April 2012. With this latest solution, the company enables high-definition video streaming, with the highest scale on the Internet today, and at an economical unit cost.
HD-M now leverages the first-of-its-kind, commercially available Automatic Multicast Tunneling relay from Juniper.
Octoshape’s latest innovation, Infinite HD-M, leverages IETF standard multicast, enabling reliable and high-quality video delivery compared to unmanaged broadband networks. The company has also created a federated global broadband video distribution network that intakes the linear signals from across the world, and distributes content effectively into the existing last mile IP infrastructures anywhere in the globe.
HD-M delivers the same quality, economy and scale of a traditional broadcast TV to the Internet, and in a cost-effective manner.
Presently, the solution is utilizing the Juniper infrastructure in the operator and telco network.
This new collaboration between two Octoshape and Juniper is a huge step forward to make the World Wide Web an efficient and reliable medium for distributing solid broadband videos. The seamless integration of Octoshape’s Infinite HD-M differentiates Juniper in the global OTT IPTV (News - Alert) market by allowing operator, telco and campus networks to leverage Multicast over the unmanaged broadband network.
In this regard, Mike Bushong, senior director, Product Line Management, Junos, Juniper Network, said the latest video distribution technology from Octoshape delivers HD Internet video irrespective of connectivity, geographical location or diverse network conditions.
Infinite HD-M, when integrated with AMT (News - Alert) technology from Juniper on its MX Series routers, enables the company to transform the scale, economics and quality of Web-based video.
Cable and telco operators, both important parts of Infinite HD-M Federated network, receive the signals through remote IP Multicast in a manner that allows them to quickly manage larger volumes of traffic, without having to upgrade the Internet capacity.
The federated linear broadband TV ecosystem from Octoshape will expand globally across well-planned phases, adding connected television manufacturers, content contribution partners, conditional access providers, and tier I broadband providers in the process.
Octoshape is a reputable cloud-based streaming technology provider, with a more flexible, scalable and affordable approach than conventional content delivery schemes, providing high-quality and feature-rich viewing to a large audience.
