BroadCache Box is compatible with H T TPS streaming.
If H T TPS streaming is used, an SSL certificate can be
installed on the BroadCache Box to guarantee that it is an
authorized source of delivery. This is a key benefit compared
to transparent caching solutions that are sometimes deployed
by operators and stop working when H T TPS delivery is used,
since no contract exists between operators and content
providers in this case.
Moreover, BroadCache Box includes a few additional
capabilities, such as a purge feature that makes it possible for
the content provider to empty the cache or to delete specific
content that it does not want to be available anymore. The
purge feature offers content providers an easy way to clear up
storage space if a content has been wrongly provisioned or has
been detected as corrupted
A threshold mechanism on the BroadCache Box offers
an alternative to a basic caching method such as the
ones implemented with Squid-like transparent caching
solutions, where all the content from the provider may not be
systematically cached. With the threshold feature, content
providers can increase the lifetime of the disks by avoiding
the need to write content that will be requested only once or
t wice (longtail content).
BroadCache Box comes with a comprehensive, integrated
set of analytics that allows content providers to monitor the
local consumption and to evaluate the gain related to the
presence of the local cache.
Providing a high QoE and QoS will continue to be the
key differentiator for broadcasters and content providers in
the future. As broadcasters and content providers look to
gain an edge on the competition, local cache solutions like
BroadCache Box will help to reduce CDN costs and boost
