The New Generation of Advanced CDN Offers the Best Streaming Performance per Watt
CESSON-SEVIGNE, France — April 4, 2023 — Broadpeak®, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, announced today the next generation of its Advanced CDN solution for video streaming. Using the latest version of Broadpeak’s Advanced CDN, video service providers can offer a flawless, low-latency, and compelling streaming experience to subscribers, with unparalleled performance, scalability and sustainability.
“As video delivery evolves, today’s video service providers need solutions that reduce energy consumption, lower costs, and deliver an outstanding quality of experience,” said Nivedita Nouvel, vice president of marketing at Broadpeak. “Our newest CDN solution is completely future-proof, offering the best streaming performance, an exceptional quality of experience, and a reduced carbon footprint that empowers video service providers to protect the environment.”
Broadpeak’s Advanced CDN delivers video streaming services at 725 Gbps from a single server, offering much better Gbps per dollar and Gbps per watt ratios than all other CDN solutions on the market. The future-proof CDN provides operators with a massive energy savings, enabling them to use four times fewer servers for video streaming compared to the previous generation. Built-in elasticity allows operators to manage horizontal and vertical scaling dynamically.
Advanced CDN can be deployed in any environment and supports on-prem, cloud, and hybrid configurations. Creating and operating a video streaming service is simple with Broadpeak’s new solution. The Advanced CDN offers operators full control over what is happening inside the content delivery network through open APIs and an intuitive GUI. In addition, the Advanced CDN opens up new business models, creating a bridge between ISPs and content providers leveraging OpenCaching APIs accessed through its Steering Center and broadpeak.io.
The innovative CDN solution is based on Broadpeak’s latest version of the BkM100 Video Delivery Mediator and its recently launched BkS450 high-performance video streamer. The Steering Center component enables the CDN to be context-aware, allowing operators to control which CDN features are being used for each session with a very fine granularity based on the request characteristics.
