Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery networks technology and VoD servers has announced that Technicolor has joined the new Broadpeak Open Alliance (BOA), an organisation dedicated to accelerating the rollout of OTT video services. By integrating Broadpeak nanoCDN technology in its home gateways, Technicolor will contribute to the BOA’s goal of creating an open environment for OTT video delivery that fosters interoperability between third-party technology providers.
By enabling a best-of-breed approach to content delivery, the BOA allows content operators to select the best technology available for each component of the delivery chain, thereby optimising the deployment of OTT services. Initially, the alliance will focus on creating interoperability between disparate home network components, such as Broadpeak’s nanoCDN technology with Technicolor’s broadband gateways’ open software. Broadpeak nanoCDN is a revolutionary CDN technology that leverages subscribers’ home networks to reduce an operator’s infrastructure investment dramatically, enabling them to deliver high-quality video services to end users more efficiently.
