NEW TECHNOLOGIES, which the company says are designed to revolutionise content delivery networks (CDN) as well as the way content providers interact with CDN service providers, are being unveiled by Broadpeak. The company is introducing
what it describes as sophisticated new features for its BkM100 CDN management and BkA100 video delivery analytics technologies, which it says strengthen Broadpeak’s operatorCDN and +screensCDN solutions in delivering a superior quality of service. The first new solution to be launched is designed to help content providers allocate the ideal CDN for their content according to various criteria such as content format, end-user location, content provider, or time of day.
The enhanced BkM100 includes what Broadpeak describes as an advanced caching mechanism that optimises storage at edge levels, combining the best of both the IPTV and OTT worlds. In addition, the BkM100 features a new system for managing content based on its importance. Using the new content priority management tool, users can prioritise pay and free content in order to distribute CDN video services more efficiently. Broadpeak is also demonstrating its BkA100 video delivery analytics solution, which the company claims improves an operator’s system management and quality of service dramatically by providing meaningful data to the entire organisation in a variety of formats. New features include a logged response time from various modules in the network (eg front office, cable resource manager and so on), an increased number of dashboards including map views, and personalised user profiles. Harnessing the new user profile functionality, a content provider can access customised statistics, maximising video delivery analytics for operator CDN applications.
home networks to dramatically reduce the number of pieces of equipment deployed in the
operators’ network. As a result, says Broadpeak, content operators can more efficiently
deliver video services to end users. 4.B72
