Iceland’s Símmin to launch OTT with Broadpeak

Icelandic telecom operator Símmin has chosen access network CDN specialist Broadpeak to provide technology for a forthcoming over-the-top multiscreen service offering.

Símmin is using Broadpeak’s BkS300 multiformat streaming video server managed by the BkM100 Mediator CDN manager to deliver live and video-on-demand content to multipe devices including TVs, PCs, smartphones and tablets.

The OTT 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.”
