BIG-IP video delivery optimization provides you with the ability to retrieve and accelerate an on-demand video stream from an origin web server. The BIG-IP system sends client requests for the video stream to an origin web server, caches the response video segments, and sequentially sends optimized video responses to all authorized users.
Additionally, video delivery optimization enables you to associate video advertisements with a video stream, providing the ability to preroll advertisements or to insert advertisements as specified by a video advertisement policy.
Perform these tasks to accelerate video segments by using video delivery optimization.
The BIG-IP system's video Quality of Experience (QoE) profile enables you to assess an audience's video session or overall video experience, providing an indication of customer satisfaction. The QoE profile uses static information, such as bitrate and duration of a video, and video metadata, such as URL and content type, in monitoring video streaming. Additionally, the QoE profile monitors dynamic information, which reflects the real-time network condition.
By considering both the static video parameters and the dynamic network information, the user experience can be assessed and defined in terms of a single mean opinion score (MOS) of the video session, and a level of customer satisfaction can be derived. QoE scores are logged in the ltm log file, located in /var/log, which you can evaluate as necessary.
