Intigral has selected Broadpeak solutions to support the deployment of its CDN and video distribution platform. Through Broadpeaks BkS300 origin and streaming servers, BkS400 video cache servers, and BkM100 CDN manager, Broadpeak will help Intigral deliver a variety of advanced television services, including live, VOD, catch-up, and start-over, ensuring a superior quality of experience (QoE) for subscribers on every screen.
We chose Broadpeak because they bring together a wealth of experience acquired during years of CDN deployments combined with a set of groundbreaking technology components, which results in superior quality of service for our customers, said Tony Saab, who leads Video Operations at Intigral.
Broadpeaks BkS300 origin servers and BkM100 CDN manager are located in Intigrals central point of presence (PoP), along with video caching technology that enables the content to be pulled from any third-party CDN. Edge PoPs across the Middle East use Broadpeaks BkS300 and BkS400 servers for recording and streaming purposes.
The BkS300 and BkS400 servers offer broad format support (including Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HDS, and MPEG-DASH), allowing Intigral customers to deliver live and VOD content to any screen. Leveraging HTTP adaptive bit rate technology, the servers guarantee that viewers receive the best possible video quality.
Each time an end-user requests video content, it is directly streamed by the local server, increasing operators efficiency and reducing video delivery costs. The presence of a local cache removes any latency that could take place between the origin server and the edge network. This dramatically improves QoS and QoE, since higher video profiles will be requested and streamed more often.
Utilising Broadpeaks BkM100 CDN manager, Intigral effectively manages load balancing and failover tasks for clients, defining how content is distributed to different PoPs. The BkM100 system continuously monitors the popularity of content based on subscriber usage patterns to deliver VOD content in the most cost-effective and efficient manner.
Intigral is bringing the television user experience to new levels, enabling live and on-demand content to be viewed on every screen via its new end-to-end video distribution platform, said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak.
Working with Broadpeaks CDN management and server solutions, Intigral is not only enhancing quality of experience, it boosts operational efficiencies for clients that are looking to up their competitive game in the PayTV market.
