NAB 2019: Dimetis and Aperi Demo Full Integration of OpsNGN and V‐Stack for Cloud‐Based Live IP Workflows
Orchestration and OSS specialist Dimetis (Booth SU13302) and Aperi (Booth SU13302), pioneer in live IP media processing, have announced that they are working together to create new IP‐based workflow offerings for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) covering content aggregation, application orchestration, SD‐WAN/NFV and more. At Aperi’s booth, the two companies are presenting a live demonstration of Dimetis’s OpsNGN and Aperi’s Media Defined Virtualization (MFV), architected for live IP workflows enabling orchestration across the IP‐to‐IP boundary between CSPs and media producers. The tightly integrated orchestration between Dimetis and Aperi, built around standards‐based RESTful APIs, allows real‐time SMPTE 2022‐2, 2022‐6m and 2110 IP flow analyzing and IP boundary security to replace current baseband workflows.
The orchestration and OSS expertise provided by Dimetis and the OpsNGN platform, combined with Aperi’s proven MFV ‘app’ technology, allows service providers and content originators to reduce total cost of ownership and create efficient IP‐based workflows built on SD‐WAN and NFV frameworks. The paradigm shift away from fixed, capex‐intensive solutions towards flexible, pay‐as‐you‐grow licensing is what customers are demanding from their technology partners.
“These are changing times, and broadcasters are looking for solutions that are powerful, yet interoperable and affordable,” said Dave Herfert, VP, sales, Aperi. “Working closely with Dimetis to orchestrate truly native live IP video applications, especially ones that rely on network elasticity and speed, will provide our customers with enormous benefits. This enables them to improve their existing workflows or build new greenfield sites that help them take advantage of new business models and distribution schemes.”
Kai Bechtold, head of global sales and marketing, Dimetis, added, “Together, we intend to enable the transition from dedicated hardware‐dependent network designs towards open, standards‐based IP networking, helping broadcasters and communication service providers gain the benefits of a software‐defined and commercial off‐the‐shelf network migration. Combining the Dimetis OpsNGN solution with the Aperi top‐tier virtualized, native live IP media platform, we can help our customers efficiently scale network provisioning faster and drive new revenue channels.”
