UBLive Accelerated Live Events
Live-streaming video is surging ahead, fueled by OTT, the primary means to consume media and entertainment online. Coupled with an exploding volume of live video services over the Internet, live-streaming events include traditional linear programming and special-event casting that multiplies
demand, coupled with new services offering user-generated content.
As a popular live event airs, multitudes of subscribers begin hauling identical live-streaming content from the nearest CDN node across access, aggregation, core and peering links, creating a sudden spike in network utilization, negatively affecting the live-stream as well as other services on the broadband access network.
UBLive solves the problem of sudden, live-streaming spikes, enabling network operators to cope with live-streaming events from the network by delivering high quality content to close proximity with subscribers.
UBLive automatically identifies popular OTT live-streams and delivers them locally from the core or the edge of the network.
Not only does UBLive eliminate network spikes, but the localization of streams enables subscribers to receive their content at the highest quality and without interruption.
