Broadpeak Breaks Ground With New Cache Orchestrator

News Image
Broadpeak® has reached a major milestone with its groundbreaking new Cache Orchestrator.

The cache Orchestrator offers a dynamic CDN solution for cache allocation on 5G networks, enabling CDN capacity to be instantiated where and when required, without being permanently mobilised, to improve quality of experience (QoE) and minimise content delivery costs.

The content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions provider completed the industry-first trial for the product, which saw automatic cache instance deployment and termination, edge cache relocation, and the first inter-cache user mobility tests successfully achieved.

"The key to delivering the best video experience over mobile networks is to bring content as close as possible to the end user. We are very excited to have accomplished the first phase of our Cache Orchestrator trial, aimed at optimizing further the quality of experience on every screen," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. "With the completion of this first phase, we are one step further in bringing the most exceptional video QoE to mobile devices and for fixed wireless access users."

Broadpeak's Cache Orchestrator offers a complete orchestration framework that is video-service-aware, Kubernetes-based, 100% virtualised, and configurable through a standardized API. With Cache Orchestrator, all CDN instances are deployed as orchestrated containers, in PoPs, or at the edge for better granularity and deep caching. This innovative feature enables video service providers to mobilise infrastructure resources where they are most needed in the network.

Cache Orchestrator automatically and seamlessly reallocates video sessions when instances shift around, and their configurations are constantly fine-tuned through a centralised process based on real-time usage analytics collected at every tier of the system.

"We are thrilled to complete the first step in this groundbreaking project and are already working on the next phase of Cache Orchestrator, which will focus on testing the solution based on the latest 5G edge-related standardisation," said Guillaume Bichot, principal engineer and head of exploration at Broadpeak. "Our next goal is to expand the dynamic placement and mobility use cases for Cache Orchestrator, enhancing the QoE mechanisms via alternative and hybrid multi-access edge computing environments."
