Broadpeak and SoftAtHome partnership
October 17, 2012
Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery networks (CDN) technology and VoD servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, and hybrid TV operators worldwide and SoftAtHome, a provider of home operating platforms, have announced their collaboration to improve OTT video experience on operators’ networks.
At IBC, Broadpeak launched nanoCDN technology, leveraging home network equipment to dramatically reduce infrastructure costs for operators and enable them to deliver high-quality video services to end users more efficiently. The new nanoCDN technology improves the scalability of live OTT TV services by effectively managing video consumption peaks that could not otherwise be supported by the network infrastructure.
SoftAtHome also announced its latest software release SOP5 during IBC. SOP5 takes SoftAtHome’s segmented software solutions further in enabling the managed IPTV and OTT adaptive streaming technologies gBox (gateway box) and ipBox (IP set-top box) to be used together.
Operators can now use their traditional IPTV back-end, or instead rely on a unique TV back-end to address retail and managed devices. The gBox solution is also designed for network operators and enables them to optimise their network down to the last mile. These solutions enable SoftAtHome 4Cs solutions, Content, Communications, Commerce and Control, to generate additional revenues for Service Providers.
