2012 NAB Show Preview
Broadpeak designs and manufactures multiplatform broadband video delivery solutions for Internet service providers and IPTV, cable and hybrid pay TV operators worldwide.
OperatorCDN is a solution that enables network service providers (NSPs) to manage a CDN on their own networks. The OperatorCDN is based on the Broadpeak BkM100 Mediator CDN management platform, which provides an advanced statistics display tool that references all the sessions per content, per region, and per format. Operating a wholesale content delivery network through the OperatorCDN allows an NSP to offer a CDN service to local content owners, who can negotiate the price directly with NSPs. Broadpeak’s solution generates new revenue streams for NSPs carrying a growing share of local content.
The solution also increases QoE (quality of experience) and, as a result, revenue, as well as offering a new geo-content replacement option that replaces content according to the current geographical location of the subscriber.
The CDN’s servers address all types of networks with both live and on-demand applications; formats include Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Apple HTTP Live Streaming, Windows Media® streaming, and Adobe Flash RTMP.
Broadpeak will also unveil the +screensCDN, a series of streaming solutions that manage bandwidth and storage usage, increase quality of experience, and eliminate churn. On display will be the Broadpeak BkM100 CDN Mediator, which models network topology and provisions video POP according to content popularity in order to optimize backbone bandwidth usage. Visitors can also see a demonstration of the Broadpeak BkS100 TS streaming servers and BkS300 multiformat servers.
The servers propose high throughput with flexible storage configurations (hard drive, flash, RAM) adapted to the actual usage model. Broadpeak will also show its BkS200 and BkS300 multiformat streaming servers, which provide optimized content delivery to PCs, smartphones and tablets.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the +screensCDN also features content recovery mechanisms to preserve quality of experience for live and VOD content delivery (RTP retry).
“Follow Me” TV Demonstration of BkM100 Unified Content Delivery Management System
Ever aware of the growing consumer demand for multiplatform content, Broadpeak will demonstrate how its BkM100 content delivery management system enables the delivery of content to multiple devices — smoothly and simply. Visitors to Broadpeak’s booth will be able to view a cross-terminal, cross-OS demonstration of “follow me” TV. Utilizing Broadpeak’s unified CDN technology, the demonstration will show how on-demand content can be delivered efficiently to multiple devices, while also allowing for switching between multiple devices, to carry on watching the same content.
The demonstration will involve content delivery to multiple screens: a personal computer with Microsoft Silverlight streaming, an iPad® with HTTP live streaming, an iPhone with iOS, a set-top box with TS streaming, and an Android-based Galaxy phone with RTSP and HTML5 streaming. The viewer can start watching content on any of these devices, stop, and start the same content from the same point on a different device by pressing just a single button.
By sharing streaming information through a CDN component called “cross-terminal module,” the Broadpeak approach enables seamless delivery of content on all devices irrespective of the devices’ operating systems. Broadpeak will also be represented at its distributor, Sencore’s, booth — SU3612.
