Broadpeak teams with SoftAtHome for OTT over CDNs

CDN provider Broadpeak has teamed up with hybrid TV specialist SoftAtHome to offers joint solutions for OTT video services on operators’ networks.

The partnership follows Broadpeak’s launch of nanoCDN at IBC, which is designed to improve the scalability of live OTT TV services by effectively managing video consumption peaks that could not otherwise be supported by the network infrastructure.

SoftAtHome also announced its latest software release SOP5 during IBC. SOP5 takes SoftAtHome’s segmented software solutions further in enabling its managed IPTV and OTT adaptive streaming technologies, the gBox gateway and ipBox IP set-top box, to be used together.

Broadpeak said the combination of the pair’s technologies would enable cost-effective delivery of live OTT video services to millions of simultaneous viewers.
