Multicast ABR Tech for Satellite to be Demo'd by Broadpeak

As the video streaming market continues to grow, satellite operators have begun deploying new cost-effective content delivery solutions, leveraging the intrinsic nature of satellite transmissions that ensure a flawless quality of experience across all screens in any place.

At SATELLITE 2020, Broadpeak® will demonstrate their nanoCDN™ multicast ABR technology for satellite, addressing hospitality and communities, 5G backhaul, mobility, and VSAT use cases.

Multicast ABR for Satellite Broadpeak's nanoCDN™ multicast ABR technology is a ready-to-deploy, cost-effective solution for OTT delivery. nanoCDN allows operators to address scalable multi-screen streaming with transmission over satellite for live TV, VOD, and catch-up TV content. By leveraging storage available on the receiver, operators can expand their offering to include advanced, nonlinear services such as time-shifting or start-over TV for increased monetization. The solution can be combined with a hybrid broadband network or used without internet access.

Several different nanoCDN satellite use cases will be shown:

  • 5G backhaul
    5G networks will have a significant impact on the future of mobile content delivery. At SATELLITE 2020, Broadpeak will show how popular content can be distributed throughout a 5G network by efficiently contributing to PoPs close to consumer gateways via mobile and terrestrial networks. Broadpeak's solution supports the use of hybrid broadcast and OTT systems, including HbbTV 2.0 and ATSC 3.0. As an active participant in the definition of 5G standards and a key developer of caching solutions and tools for optimizing resource management allocation for mobile networks, Broadpeak is leading the charge for efficient 5G distribution.
