Quickline taps Broadpeak for OTT TV service

Broadpeak QuicklineSwiss cable operator Quickline has tapped Broadpeak to provide the underlying technology for its Quickline TV service, which delivers over 400 channels of live and on-demand content, as well as cloud DVR, to IPTV and OTT TV users.

Quickline is using Broadpeak’s BkS300, BkS400, and BkS100 video servers, BkM100 CDN manager and BkA100 video delivery analytics to deliver the service.

Using Broadpeak’s BkM100 CDN manager, Quickline can manage load balancing and failover tasks for clients. The BkM100 system monitors the popularity of content based on subscriber usage patterns to deliver live and VOD content more efficiently, according to Broadpeak.

Broadpeak’s BkA100 analytics system is connected to the workflow, allowing Quickline to gather data about video delivery, generate statistics about content popularity, and provide feedback on what is going on within the delivery system.

“When launching advanced video services in the multiscreen environment, efficiency and performance are critical in a CDN and video server solution –­­ given the large number of media assets that are being delivered. Broadpeak enables us to support a broad range of formats and devices, making it easy to manage the user experience and gain insight into the QoE perceived by end-users. The flexibility and deployment experience that Broadpeak offers make them a solid technology partner for the long term,” said Remond Krebs, CTO at Quickline.

“Being involved in the OTT world gives Quickline a competitive edge in the pay-TV marketplace,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. “By supporting live and on-demand content, including cloud PVR, Broadpeak’s CDN and server solutions will enable rapid monetization for Quickline while maintaining an exceptional quality of experience for end-users on whichever screen they choose to use. Broadpeak solutions can scale up to accommodate all services requested by Quickline’s users now and in the future.”

In addition to Broadpeak, Quickline is using SeaChange to provide  support for multiplatform content management and delivery, monetization and the subscriber experience, including RDK-V-based set-top box software.
