Cisco announced the Videoscape platform expansion at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) now underway in Las Vegas. Back at the 2011 CES event, Cisco first announced Videoscape as a network video delivery platform. The initial Videoscape technology platform was based on Linux, using technology Cisco gained through its acquisition of Extend Media in August of 2010.
The new Videoscape cloud software runs in the cloud, including OpenStack powered clouds. Service providers will now be able to run their own Videoscape cloud software instances. Cisco is also announcing Videoscape Cloud Services. The cloud services model is a consumption-based Videoscape model delivered by Cisco.
