Broadpeak to introduce nanoCDN technology in Asia at CDN Asia 2013

January 21, 2013

Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery networks (CDN) and video-on-demand (VoD) servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, and hybrid TV operators worldwide, has announced it will showcase the company’s award-winning nanoCDN technology for the first time in Asia at CDN Asia 2013, Jan. 29-30 in Singapore. On Jan. 30 at 11:30 a.m., Jacques Le Mancq, Broadpeak’s CEO, will hold a presentation outlining the benefits of nanoCDN for network service providers, including its capability to revolutionise live OTT video delivery.

“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,” said Le Mancq. “At CDN Asia 2013, I will explain how Broadpeak’s 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.”

nanoCDN is a revolutionary new CDN technology that leverages subscribers’ home networks to reduce infrastructure investments dramatically for network service providers. The first application of nanoCDN will be used for live OTT video delivery, with more applications to be supported in the future.

At CDN Asia 2013, Broadpeak will demonstrate how nanoCDN improves the scalability of live OTT TV content by effectively managing video consumption peaks that are not supported by the network infrastructure. Utilizing nanoCDN, operators can deliver live OTT video services to millions of simultaneous viewers using only a few megabits per second from the operator network. Additionally, nanoCDN can be integrated seamlessly with any existing video headend. Completely transparent to end-users, the cost-effective solution does not require a dedicated client and is compatible with any DRM system.

nanoCDN is the first Broadpeak technology supported by the company’s newly launched technical organisation, the Broadpeak Open Alliance (BOA). BOA provides a framework for interoperability testing between best-of-breed OTT components, offering more options and differentiation to service providers than closed and proprietary end-to-end systems.
