Multi-Channel and Second Screen Advertising

Geography

Europe

Product Used

VNS3

Problem
Customer wanted to be able to use cloud instances as “points of presence” to expand the reach of their digital video services to multiple cable system providers globally.  Customer’s desired approach was to have a “container” structure that allowed them to replicate their services for each of their provider customers. Ideally this could be done with edge connectivity, multi-cloud center federation, and critical information encryption as needed, with high bandwidth functions allowed to run in native VLAN infrastructure.

Solution
VNS3 combined with cloud provider VLAN isolation to federate across multiple cloud delivery centers. It also provided edge connectivity in a form that the providers were comfortable with – similar to their experiences with their traditional telco partners.

Outcome
Customer was able to create a scalable, flexible “container” structure for deploying their needed infrastructure to the cloud data centers – with a given deployment dedicated to a specific cable provider.
