Streaming Video Alliance successfully tests caching API interoperability

The Streaming Video Alliance has passed a new milestone with its Open Caching Testbed Initiative.

The organisation has tested and demonstrated the interoperability of the Alliance’s Open Caching APIs between multiple providers.

For the test, Disney Streaming acted as the content origin, while Broadpeak and Telefonica implemented several of the Open Caching specifications to demonstrate that the Open Caching concept and technology operate as intended and can connect caches from multiple entities involved in delivering streaming video content. 

This Alliance also said that this testbed validates the Open Caching concept and its specifications.

The Alliance’s Open Caching Working Group has collected recommendations on how to cover specification gaps in a forthcoming document, Open Caching API Implementation Guidelines. This document defines the steps to build an Open Caching Network from scratch, and the testbed demonstrates the end-result.

Jason Thibeault, Executive Director at the Streaming Video Alliance, said: “The open caching interoperability testbed represents some of the groundbreaking work our members are committed to at the Alliance. I applaud the Open Caching Working Group for their dedication to bringing this full circle from initial concept to a real-world implementation with potential to have a lasting impact on the streaming industry.”

The testbed will be available according to a schedule of availability that will be provided to Alliance member companies. Currently, only Alliance member companies will be able to access the testbed.
