ARRIS has announced that its ConvergeMedia Management Suite, previously known as nABLE, can now dynamically manage heterogeneous On Demand content across multiple video servers, optimizing service provider resources for network bandwidth, video server storage and streaming. This functionality is enabled by Management Suite release 1.0, now generally available, and builds upon the software’s functionality to manage content ingest, distribution and dynamic re-distribution of content across servers throughout the service providers’ networks.

The new platform enables service providers to deploy large media libraries of mixed content throughout their networks of video servers. Service providers can now extend VOD deployments to more communities by deploying edge servers that were not previously economically viable due to the management overhead and quantities of different edge servers required. Because ConvergeMedia Management Suite and storage platforms also support fully integrated advanced advertising features like dynamic ad insertion and interactivity, service providers have a platform to launch new services without replacing the deployed servers.

The ConvergeMedia OnDemand management platform further offers features that enable operators to converge High Speed Data and video services with OnDemand and advanced advertising offerings by providing content search capabilities, recommendation engine integration and personalized features.
