Broadpeak Helps Content Distributors Overcome Scalability and Latency Issues

Solving a problem that has plagued many large media events online, Broadpeak has developed nanoCDN, an advanced bit rate (ABR) multicast technology platform that enables cable and Telecom operators to deal with millions of TV viewers and unpredictable peaks of online traffic.

In addition to the scalability issue it solves, the Broadpeak nanoCDN platform also minimizes bandwidth use while dramatically decreasing latency. This makes live HTTP a good candidate to replace legacy IPTV systems.

As one of the first providers of ABR multicast technology, Broadpeak hopes to streamline live multiscreen video delivery. At the 2018 IBC Show, the company will demonstrate its nonoCDN 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. To date, several operators worldwide have successfully deployed nanoCDN for live television delivery to any screen with ultra-low latency. At the IBC Show Broadpeak will demonstrate new features for nanoCDN, like Common Media File Format (CMAF) and chunked transfer encoding support to further decrease latency for OTT live streaming.

Drastically reducing network costs, Broadpeak’s nanoCDN multicast ABR leverages home network devices such as broadband gateways, cable modems or set-top-boxes, turning them into a part of the Content Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructure. There’s no need to deploy new pieces of network gear. It also works for 4K content delivery and is transparent to encoders, DRM, players and reception devices.
