Project SWAN: First Network Tests Result In 5x Bandwidth Reduction

Edge Video announces an exciting first step in video broadcasting cost reduction.

The company's mission to radically lower video bandwidth costs moved one step closer to the final goal today, with first test results showing a 5x reduction in bandwidth costs, compared with costs of existing server based architectures.

Called SWAN (Small-world Wide Area Networks), the system enables a live video stream to be captured by the SWAN technology and re-broadcast to viewers where each of the viewers devices leverage the unused upload capacity to re-stream fractional portions of the video stream to other viewers.

"This is the most radical product to emerge in Edge Computing" Said Joe Ward, CEO of Edge Video. "Video is by far the highest cost application per user on the internet. Here we are enabling a 5x reduction in network egress costs, resulting in a much higher video definition for viewers."

The next phase of Edge Video SWAN testing will target a 10x reduction in bandwidth costs which the company plans to announce in July 2020, where all cloud computing users at AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud will be able to soon leverage the Edge Video SWAN technology to substantially reduce server bandwidth (egress) costs and increase video viewing definition as a result.
