Shorter routes mean less traffic
Is video consuming too much bandwidth on your corporate network? Want to reduce the amount of video traffic without restricting the use of video? The answer is simple. Shorten the distance between the video source and your viewers and you’ll drastically reduce the amount of network congestion. OmniCache dynamically retrieves live and on-demand video from any video source and stores local copies at key locations inside the firewall. Now when concentrations of viewers request video they get it from the local cache instead of traversing the entire network to pull duplicate streams.
The affordable alternative to expensive network upgrades
OmniCache replaces expensive infrastructure upgrades with a lower cost, flexible solution. This lightweight software-only solution runs on your existing infrastructure and supports all streaming protocols including HLS, DASH, HDS and Smooth Streaming. Because OmniCache will also support both live and on-demand video, it becomes the only streaming distribution infrastructure you need for your entire enterprise.
Reliable, high quality viewing experience
We all know the true measure of success is the quality of your end user experience. Getting the video source closer to viewers improves playback performance and ensures a smooth, reliable viewing experience. Decreasing the distance video travels over the network reduces the amount of latency and buffering viewers experience and speeds up start times. A better experience encourages video adoption and makes you everyone’s hero.
Single distribution solution for all your streaming platforms
Most enterprises use upwards of three or more video streaming platforms to serve the distinct needs of the organization. Fortunately, you don’t need a different enterprise distribution solution for each one. Unlike other software caches that are designed exclusively to cache video originating from a single proprietary solution, OmniCache can be used simultaneously with all your platforms and becomes the only distribution infrastructure you need. Tested and verified with all the market-leading streaming platforms, many of our partners have chosen to integrate OmniCache directly into their products for the most seamless experience possible.
Enterprise-grade security for peace of mind
We know enterprise security is a top priority. OmniCache manages video distribution at the network layer, not via user devices like peer-to-peer alternatives. This approach maintains enterprise security policies and protects you from potential viruses or data breaches that could result from infiltration of nodes. Furthermore, OmniCache uses HTTP(S) encryption, fully compliant with NSA-adopted NIST Suite B Cryptography, so data is protected at all times while in transit and at rest.
Cache management made easy
The Altimeter management console makes it easy to provision and configure all your OmniCache instances. This simple, web-based interface centralizes licensing, configuration and management, provides real-time diagnostics for troubleshooting, and tracks comprehensive performance data and utilization statistics. Use it to set up advanced cache routing rules to orchestrate the most optimal flow of video traffic on your network.
Designed for scale and resiliency
The self-discoverable, self-healing properties of OmniCache set it apart from all other video distribution alternatives. The ability to scale gracefully can make or break the viability of an enterprise solution. Deploying OmniCache as a mesh creates a network of cache nodes peered to one another. Now when you need to add an additional cache to the network, it is automatically discovered and pulled into the mesh making it easy to size your deployment for today and grow over time. When called into action, the mesh now handles the optimal routing of traffic based on node proximity, availability, and capacity for the resiliency you expect from an enterprise solution.
Bridge streaming gaps on the network
If you have a multicast-enabled network, Multicast+ may be the best solution for you. However, fragmented multicast-enabled networks are not uncommon and leaving pockets of viewers unable to access the video stream. Setting up a unicast fallback to OmniCache ensures video reaches everyone with the least impact to the network and the best playback performance.
