Broadpeak to unveil nanoCDN technology

Content delivery networks (CDN) and video-on-demand (VOD) server provider Broadpeak is to unveil its new CDN technology that leverages subscribers' home networks to reduce infrastructure investments “dramatically” for network service providers.
Aiming its products at cable, IPTV, over-the-top (OTT), and hybrid TV operators, the company says that it will use CDN Asia 2013 to demonstrate how its nanoCDN solutions improve the scalability of live OTT TV content by effectively managing video consumption peaks that are not supported by the network infrastructure. In addition it argues that nanoCDN technology can allow operators to deliver live OTT video services to millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second from the operator network while being integrated with any existing video headend. Moreover, the solution does not require a dedicated client and is compatible with any DRM system.
The first application of nanoCDN will be used for live OTT video delivery, something that is essential going forward, revealed CEO Jacques Le Mancq.
"Given the increase in live OTT media consumption, network service providers are struggling more than ever to support additional content, devices, and users with limited infrastructure resources," Le Mancq commented. “nanoCDN technology can help network operators offer a unique CDN service to content owners by delivering a reliable and high quality live OTT video service to millions of subscribers at a very competitive cost."
