Broadpeak Integrates CDN Platform with Inlet’s Spinnaker Live Streaming Appliances
Broadpeak has completed integration between Mediator, its content delivery network (CDN) management system, and Inlet Technologies’ Spinnaker live streaming appliances. The integration enables a turnkey Web TV offering for multichannel providers, such as cable and telco operators and network service providers worldwide, who are looking to provide access to their content via the Web for existing subscribers or to new subscribers via an over-the-top application.
Advanced redundancy between the technologies from Broadpeak and Inlet ensures reliable, high-performance adaptive bitrate encoding from Inlet that powers the delivery of content over IP networks provided by Broadpeak. The system trims deployment time and eliminates costs for integration and troubleshooting. The Broadpeak system also features advanced monitoring of the encoded content to ensure quality and network performance.
“We’re excited to offer customers a turnkey solution like this thanks to our collaboration with a trusted name like Inlet Technologies,” says Jacques Le Mancq, Broadpeak’s president and CEO. “We recognize our responsibility to help network operators reach new audiences easily and efficiently. This pre-configured solution helps our customers exploit new opportunities — and all the systems work has been done for them.”
Focused on CDN and video-on-demand (VoD) servers, Broadpeak is a spinoff from Technicolor, formed by a team of experts who previously worked at Technicolor and spent years working with large-scale deployments by IPTV, cable, and hybrid pay-TV operators worldwide.
The scalable Broadpeak Mediator system enables network service providers to efficiently deliver content to multiple screens, over any type of network, using intelligent popularity management to optimize system storage capacity and system load balancing to ensure high-performance. The system’s servers feature redundancy and fail-over management and network topology is easily managed using advanced, secure, multilayered PoP technology. Ideal for over-the-top Web television delivery, Mediator also provides geolocation and geoblocking features for Internet streaming. It can be used as a private CDN or installed as a wholesale platform.
