Broadpeak masters an array of technologies allowing the company to propose inovative approaches to solve all technical problems related to video distribution on any type of network.
A content delivery network is an absolute necessity when it comes to deliver bandwidth demanding content over networks that are more and more solicited. Without optimizing its resources, an operator cannot support the huge amount of traffic at stake over managed networks as well as over open Internet networks.
Over-the-top (OTT) content consumption has gained considerable attraction in the past few years, driven by the introduction of new mobile devices and new OTT players. Several streaming technologies are available to address it.
Transport Stream is the format of choice for delivering video-on-demand over managed networks (IPTV or Cable). Live content delivery can also benefit from techniques that enable an increase in the Quality of Experience and reduce channel switching time.
The consumption of video services over IP networks has seen a tremendous growth in the past few years, and today, network service providers seek to improve the Quality of Service and the Quality of Experience (QoE) for their subscribers.
Among the numerous benefits of the software approach adopted by Broadpeak for its CDN solutions, the capability of deploying a system in a virtualized environment leveraging Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Network (SDN) is one of the most important.
