Content delivery network provider Broadpeak, has teamed with global satellite provider Eutelsat to improve the delivery of over-the-top (OTT) multiscreen services.

Utilising a combination of Broadpeak's nanoCDN and Eutelsat's 'smart LNB' technologies, operators can cost-effectively deliver 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 this week, Eutelsat will demonstrate the two technologies.

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.

Broadpeak's nanoCDN technology allows operators to deliver live OTT video services to millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second.
