In today's digital world, service providers are faced with the increasingly complex decision of choosing between hardware and software for their video compression needs.
While the trend continues to push network functions to data centers and virtual cloud environments, ARRIS takes the approach of learning exactly how our customers are going to be using the technology, and then advising the most efficient and cost-effective path.
We understand that there are pros and cons to either route. The advantages of virtualization are undeniable, but there are applications, for example live content, where performance in a virtualized environment may suffer. But, providers who compress mostly file-based content wouldnât have those same performance concerns. There are a multitude of considerations, and we are able to address them all.
