Expway Presents FastLane, Offers Flawless, Cost-Effective Mobile Video Experience to Any OTT service - | Video Everywhere... with a headache | Scoop.it

Expway, the wireless multicast leader, presented today at Mobile World Congress FastLane, a new Content Delivery Network (CDN) solution with a unique approach to optimizing mobile content delivery. The solution focuses on optimizing the link from the network cell to the devices using LTE Broadcast, Multicast Dynamic Switching and pre-emptive caching.

...

At the Mobile World Congress Akamai booth (3B30), Expway and Akamai will demonstrate how switching from unicast to multicast using Expway FastLane helps avoid traffic peaks and reduce network bandwidth.

The Huawei – booth (1J50), will showcase how user experience quality can be monitored using FastLane, and the Expway – booth (8.0J40), will reveal what a high-quality HD video user experience looks like with FastLane.

...

FastLane uses LTE Broadcast, a 3GPP feature available in any recent LTE network, to deliver the content once, to a thousand users or more, leading to enormous bandwidth savings for the delivery of popular content. FastLane is a true end-to end Mobile CDN and includes all components necessary to deliver true LTE Broadcast. It is composed of Expway’s proven products, namely its BMSC, BPM and Device Middleware, already deployed by tier one operators and device makers worldwide, and a new product called the Device Agent.
