Transparent Caching, Over-the-Top Device Honored Among Best, Brightest Ottawa Innovations
Ottawa — Monday, April 11, 2011 // BTI Systems, the company that redefines metro service delivery, was honored with the 2011 Product of the Year Award for WideCast by the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation (OCRI) at their annual awards ceremony. Selected from among 36 finalists, WideCast represents the industry’s first architecture that allows service providers to deliver video content effectively and efficiently without the need to invest in a whole new infrastructure.
Introduced to the market just last year, WideCast epitomizes a new approach to networking - Content Aware Networking – and enables service providers to turn the problem of OTT video delivery into a new business opportunity with network intelligence and sophistication. WideCast allows service providers to simplify the management of services and the allocation of bandwidth for content delivery, streaming video, on-demand services, and transactional-based connectivity. By pushing content delivery functions to the edge of the network with transparent caching technology that automatically stores and locally serves content, the WideCast platform lowers expenditures and raises revenue potential.
“The use of network intelligence to address the demands of services competing for precious network resources is the next frontier in service delivery,” said Glenn Thurston, vice president of Global Marketing and Sales Operations, BTI Systems. “Supporting this seismic shift in the industry with WideCast is an extension of our packet-optical roots and are extremely grateful to have our efforts recognized.”
