What Is Edge Caching?
Edge caching provides automatic local caching of video content for multiple users. Every time a user requests a video stream, the local cache is checked before the request is sent to the origin source on the WAN or in the cloud. This means traffic is reduced by bringing the video closer to its viewers.
When to Use an Edge Caching eCDN
Vbrick has flexible video modalities to create the most optimal eCDN architecture for your enterprise. Edge caching is an ideal solution if:
- You stream both live broadcasts and video on demand (VOD) to small numbers of users or at scale
- Portions or all of your network are not multicast-enabled
- You need to optimize VPN architectures
