RENNES, France — March 10, 2014 — Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and video-on-demand (VOD) servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, and mobile operators worldwide, today announced that it has teamed with global satellite provider Eutelsat to improve the delivery of OTT multiscreen services. Utilizing a combination of Broadpeak’s nanoCDN and Eutelsat’s “smart LNB” technologies, operators can cost-effectively deliver high-quality live TV channels over satellite to millions of subscriber devices, including TVs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets, using the same bandwidth. At CABSAT 2014 in Dubai, March 11-13, stand E1-10, Eutelsat will demonstrate the two technologies, explaining how Broadpeak and Eutelsat are transforming the delivery of DTH satellite services.
Eutelsat’s “smart LNB” is a low-cost device that bundles DTH reception of TV channels with a narrowband satellite return channel for short transmissions of IP packets. As such, it opens the door for broadcasters to operate their own ecosystem of linear television and connected TV services direct by satellite.
Leveraging the multicast capabilities of the network, Broadpeak’s award-winning nanoCDN technology allows operators to cost-effectively deliver high-quality, live OTT video services to millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second. By effectively managing video consumption peaks that are not supported by the network infrastructure, nanoCDN dramatically improves the scalability of live OTT TV content.
“The combination of our two technologies is a game changer in the world of OTT multiscreen delivery via satellite,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “Relying on the power of multicast, operators can cost-effectively deliver high-quality live TV channels over Eutelsat satellites to an endless number of subscribers anywhere, anytime, and on any device.”
