Using Broadpeak solutions, operators and content providers can cost-effectively deliver video content anytime, anywhere, on any device, and over any network while providing a superior quality of experience (QoE) to customers.

Solutions for Content Providers:
Broadpeak’s solutions enable content providers to optimize OTT video delivery through various options:
- Hosting the origin server: Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager improves multiscreen video delivery on managed or open Internet networks through on-the-fly packaging and unique cache management capabilities.
- Using a CDN selector: With umbrellaCDN™, content providers can always choose the most adapted CDN for delivering video content. umbrellaCDN offers a variety of advanced capabilities, including CDN Diversity, a new technology that allows content providers to dynamically take into account the instantaneous quality of several CDNs as a service to deliver the content with the highest quality possible.
- Deploying local cache servers: Content providers can improve the quality of experience by streaming from a closer location to end users.
- CDN services: Broadpeak provides a one-stop shop solution to enable worldwide delivery of video content.
- Video analytics solution: At the 2016 NAB Show, Broadpeak will demonstrate a new standalone video analytics solution for displaying player feedback. Using this solution, content providers can gain insight into the QoE for end-users, leveraging critical information such as start-up time, stall durations, rebufferings, and consumption (e.g., audience, trick mode usage).
Solutions for Operators:
- CDN in a Box: A key demonstration at the 2016 NAB Show will be Broadpeak’s “CDN in a Box” solution, which dramatically simplifies the deployment of video streaming services by providing operators with essential capabilities, such as CDN management, video analytics, video streaming servers, and origin packager.
Broadpeak’s CDN services support a variety of OTT applications for operators, including disaster recovery, overflow, and off-net scenarios.
- Cloud PVR: Broadpeak will showcase the solution’s cloud PVR capabilities, presenting all scenarios for shared copy and private copy. Using cloud PVR technology, operators can offer start-over, time-shifting, and catch-up TV, as well as impulsive recording, while only storing content once. This approach dramatically reduces the operators’ storage expenses.
- nanoCDN™ Multicast ABR: Demo With 4K ContentAt the 2016 NAB Show, Broadpeak will demonstrate how operators can cost-effectively deliver live 4K content with its award-winning nanoCDN™ technology. Leveraging home networks, operators can cost-effectively manage the consumption peaks in live multiscreen services for millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second from their network. This is done by implementing multicast support for most popular ABR formats.
