The Turkish DTH platform D-Smart has deployed Broadpeak’s umbrellaVDN solution for its OTT service.

Using the solution, it can offload traffic to third-party CDNs in order to address peaks in live video consumption.

Commenting on the development, Erdogan Simsek, CTO at D-Smart, said: “Recently, we began offering viewers an exclusive look at our OTT service with promotional-free viewing of specific popular live events, with the end goal of attracting new customers to our OTT service subscription. To accommodate the anticipated peaks in OTT video consumption, we needed an advanced CDN solution capable of managing a large number of simultaneous sessions without compromising quality.

“As a longtime customer, we have come to trust Broadpeak’s experience in video streaming technologies. umbrellaCDN is one of the industry’s only software-based solutions for CDN selection, bringing us unparalleled flexibility and cost savings while guaranteeing a superior QoE for end users.”

Jacques Le Mancq, president and CEO of Broadpeak, added: “OTT content is extremely popular with consumers, especially for live sporting events.

“By deploying our umbrellaCDN solution, D-Smart can balance traffic between multiple CDNs, as needed, guaranteeing QoE for all end-users even during events generating a large audience.”
