D-Smart chooses Broadpeak for OTT service

Turkish pay TV operator D-Smart has chosen CDN technology provider Broadpeak to support its deployment of over-the-top TV services.

D-Smart has deployed Broadpeak’s BkS400 video servers to manage its OTT streaming services, using HTTP adaptive streaming technology to stream live and video-on-demand services to approximately two 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.”
