Broadpeak launches CDN Diversity

April 5, 2016

At the 2016 NAB Show, Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies for pay-TV operators and content providers worldwide, will introduce CDN Diversity, the latest enhancement to Broadpeak’s umbrellaCDN selection solution. CDN Diversity dynamically takes into account the instantaneous quality of several CDNs in order to request more from the best performing CDNs. Leveraging real-time information and analytics, content providers can cost-effectively improve quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS) for end-users.

“For content providers, delivering video with premium quality — in the most affordable manner possible — is the ultimate goal. Yet, one CDN is not always the best choice for all content delivery scenarios,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “CDN Diversity innovates upon the traditional CDN selection process, allowing providers to make immediate, intelligent, and automated decisions depending on the context of various networks, subscribers, and their devices. Taking into account parameters such as geographical area, QoS, and price, content providers can successfully balance traffic between multiple CDNs to boost QoE and reduce video delivery expenses.”
