TV content can now be watched anywhere and on just about any device with a screen. Simultaneously, real-time transcoding is making video streaming much more efficient even as network operators begin to introduce virtualised services via SDN and NFV technologies. Meanwhile, the carrier edge is being revolutionised as intelligence and capability is pushed much closer to users.
The ‘edge revolution’ is great for consumers but to ensure its success service providers need both higher density, scalable computing power - as well as lower Capex and Opex.
It's a tall order but hardware acceleration offers an excellent solution.
As Artesyn’s webinar will explain, hardware acceleration improves server performance via specialised offload hardware to perform processing functions more quickly than is possible with software on general-purpose processors - yet remaining completely compatible with them.
In this way, many companies that already have video software running on x86 processors can improve both their cost and performance in terms of the creation of video content and its delivery, as well as video rendering/ CGI, 360° video systems and virtual reality.
Hardware acceleration also applies to sectors such as social services, education, hospitality, healthcare, surveillance and monitoring. It also works for and industrial and military/aerospace applications such as in control rooms, analytics, image identification and machine vision.
Take a look at the Artesyn webinar. It shows application use cases and a VNF demonstration showing a more than 20-fold performance improvement using open source and open standard software and hardware.
