Over the last few years, the television world has gone through a radical transformation. Gone are the days when consumers would leave work, come home, and sit down to enjoy a full night of entertainment on their living room TVs. Today’s consumers are now watching a mixture of live, VOD, catch-up TV, and other advanced services, such as OTT, on an ever-increasing number of devices, including smartphones and tablets.

As consumer demand for video content anytime, anywhere, on any device continues to grow at an increased pace, pay-TV operators are seeking content delivery network (CDN) solutions that are more efficient and flexible to speed up the time to market for new services, and decrease capital and operating expenses.

This white paper examines the benefits of a software-based approach to content delivery allowing the use of off-the-shelf hardware. In addition, the paper looks at network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networks (SDN), which are key trends for OTT video delivery.
