Joint EBU-OCEAN workshop on Internet Content Delivery

Joint EBU-OCEAN workshop on Internet Content Delivery

EBU TECHNICAL and OCEAN are organizing a joint workshop on Internet Content Delivery at EBU headquarters on 7 September for radio, television and new media managers, Broadcast engineers, New media experts and IT experts. 

OCEAN stands for “Open ContEnt Aware Networks” and is a 3-year European Commission funded project which started on 1st February 2010. Its mission is to design and develop a second-generation open content delivery system (CDN). 

The OCEAN technology is of high interest to broadcasters and content providers as it can lower internet content delivery costs and foster multi-vendor equipment solutions (therefore enhancing competition). 

The EBU is an active member of the OCEAN project, along with France Telecom, Alcatel-Lucent, IBBT, IDATE, N2N, UVS, Fraunhofer HHI, and Telecom Poland.”

More about OCEAN 

The OCEAN system performs content caching in the broadband cabinets and exchanges, thus bringing the media files much closer to the end user than traditional CDNs. This additional caching layer is complementary to the traditional CDNs (such as Akamai, Limelight, Level3) and is interoperable with them. OCEAN deploys a network-controlled, content-aware, highly scalable and adaptive content delivery techniques. To this end, OCEAN may significantly improve the efficiency of the overall internet distribution mechanism.
