Junos Content Encore

Optimized networks for efficient delivery of rich media

Optimize your network for efficient delivery of video and rich media content and enable new revenue-generating services with the Junos Content Encore portfolio of caching and delivery systems.

    Overview

    Consumers expect all Web and video content to be available at any time on any device. The challenge of this over-the-top (OTT) delivery of video and rich media content is that it generates tremendous traffic on networks, adding costs but little or no revenue.

    However, it also opens up opportunities for innovative new services. Junos Content Encore provides a monetization platform that can enable new revenue-generating services. The caching and delivery engine can optimize networks for delivering OTT video and other applications at lower costs.

    Junos Content Encore offers flexible deployment options as an appliance on VXA Series Content Engines and as installable software on generally available servers. It supports a variety of business objectives focused on cost optimization and revenue generation from new services. Examples include:

    • Transparent caching for network optimization—Lower costs by reducing the impact of OTT video content on the network
    • New video services—Enable exciting video services with content caching and adaptive bit-rate streaming
    • Enterprise video delivery—Deliver video more efficiently
