September 27, 2013

Icelandic telecommunications provider Síminn has chosen Broadpeak solutions to power a new OTT multiscreen service offering. Utilising Broadpeak’s BkS300 multi-format streaming video server managed by the BkM100 Mediator CDN manager, Síminn can cost-effectively deliver live and VoD content to a variety of devices, including TVs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets, while ensuring a superior quality of service for customers. The new OTT multiscreen service is expected to launch later this year.

“Broadpeak’s CDN solutions have been supporting our IPTV services for many years now, enabling Síminn subscribers to enjoy advanced features like VoD, catch-up TV, and network time-shifting, leveraging video servers deployed throughout our network,” said Saevar Freyr Thrainsson, CEO, Síminn. “A combined CDN and streaming solution from Broadpeak significantly enhances our IPTV offering, providing us with the flexibility to deliver high-quality live and VoD content to our subscribers anytime, anywhere, on multiple screens, without making a significant capital investment on our network.”
