Solutions for Cable and Telecom Operators

nanoCDN™ Multicast ABR Solution Boosts QoE, Minimizes Bandwidth, and Dramatically Decreases Latency

As the first provider of ABR multicast technology, Broadpeak® is revolutionizing live multiscreen video delivery. At IBC2018, the company will demonstrate its nanoCDN™ multicast ABR solution, which makes live HTTP video delivery to any device truly scalable by turning millions of broadband gateways, cable modems, Wi-Fi routers, and STBs into active components of an operator’s content delivery infrastructure. Leveraging home networks, operators can cost-effectively manage the consumption peaks of live multiscreen services for millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second from their network. nanoCDN has been successfully deployed by leading operators worldwide for live television delivery to any screen with ultra-low latency. Broadpeak will demonstrate innovative new features for nanoCDN, such as Common Media File Format (CMAF) and chunked transfer encoding support to further decrease latency for OTT live streaming.

Solutions for Satellite Operators

At IBC2018, Broadpeak® will introduce new features of its nanoCDN solution for satellite, which allows operators to deliver a true OTT experience while preserving the quality of traditional satellite distribution. Broadpeak’s nanoCDN for satellite allows operators to provide live TV, VOD, and catch-up TV content. By leveraging storage available on the receiver, operators can further expand their offering to include advanced non-linear services such as time-shifting or start-over TV for increased monetization. The solution can be combined with a hybrid broadband network or used without internet access.

During IBC2018, Broadpeak will demonstrate its origin packager complemented with video delivery analytics, which enables content providers to deliver secure live, time-shift TV, and VOD services to any device.

Additional Highlights for Content Providers Include:

umbrellaCDN™ With CDN Diversity for Enhanced Content Quality

Broadpeak’s umbrellaCDN™ CDN selector lets content providers choose the best content delivery networks for delivering video content. In Amsterdam, Broadpeak® will highlight CDN Diversity, a groundbreaking function of umbrellaCDN that allows content providers to dynamically take into account the instantaneous quality of several CDNs as a service, combine their contributions, and deliver the content at a quality level exceeding what would be achievable with the best CDN alone. A new priority feature will be shown that enables content providers to use a main CDN for streaming and backup CDNs in case the main one fails.  This gives content providers even more control over CDN costs and guarantees exceptional QoE for subscribers.

Reduce CDN Costs With Local Video Caching Technology

At IBC2018, Broadpeak® will demonstrate BroadCache Box, a local video caching solution for broadcasters and content providers. Using BroadCache Box, broadcasters can dramatically reduce CDN costs while boosting subscribers’ QoE. With BroadCache Box, local caches are deployed into telecom or cable operators’ networks, and the most popular content from a specific content provider is stored. Since the content is streamed from a location closer to end-users, latency and network congestion are reduced, resulting in higher video bitrates, faster start times, and uninterrupted viewing sessions. As the most popular content can represent more than 80 percent of the video traffic, caching at the ISP level significantly lowers CDN service costs. Additionally, BroadCache Boxes do not generate any transit costs. The solution can be used for both live and on-demand content and supports secured HTTPS connections.
