New Delhi: CDN and video streaming solutions firm Broadpeak has successfully performed the world's first live demonstration of Streaming Video Alliance Open Caching APIs.

Streaming Video Alliance Open Caching is a new approach to streaming that extends the reach of telecom operators, attracting more content providers to use their local caching infrastructure. It is basically a set of open APIs that standardises the interface between the hosted local cache infrastructure of an internet service provider (ISP), the party operating it, and the content providers. By moving the hosted video caches as close as possible to end users' terminals, it reduces traffic across a telecom operator's core network and improves streaming quality of experience.

"The alliance exists to solve critical technical challenges facing online video delivery, with the ultimate aim of improving consumer adoption," said Streaming Video Alliance executive director Jason Thibeault. "With this, Broadpeak is taking a huge step toward optimising the relationship between content providers and network operators. We're excited about the positive impact it will have on the quality of experience for end users."

"Without a clear, common, and simple API definition, it was difficult to drive further developments and conduct interoperable tests for Streaming Video Alliance Open Caching," said Broadpeak, principal engineer & head of exploration Guillaume Bichot. "We're proud of our team for taking the lead on specifying this API, relying on the set of Alliance specifications, and converging the various options into a simple API that enables faster developments and interoperability.”

The demo took place during the Streaming Video Alliance's first 2021 quarterly meeting and was powered by a complete setup that included the video content source and Broadpeak's umbrellaCDN CDN selector on the client side, and Broadpeak's BkM100 for CDN management and BkS400 local cache server on the ISP side.
