Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and VoD servers has announced that D-Smart, Turkey’s youngest and fastest growing digital broadcasting platform, has deployed Broadpeak’s BkS400 video servers to manage its OTT streaming services. Leveraging HTTP adaptive streaming technology and a massive streaming capacity, the servers enable D-Smart to stream high-quality live and VoD services to approximately 2 million subscribers on a wide range of devices, including TVs, PCs, and tablets.

“With subscriber demand for OTT streaming services growing every day, D-Smart needed a more powerful and flexible server to support additional sessions and traffic,” said Erdogan Simsek, DTH technical director, D-Smart. “Broadpeak’s BkS400 uses adaptive bit rate technology to speed up OTT delivery while ensuring a high quality of service for viewers. Since deploying the new servers, we’ve dramatically increased the amount of content streamed to traditional and handheld devices.”
