Broadpeak Integrates CDN Platform With Inlet Technologies

Broadpeak has announced the completion of integration between Mediator, its content delivery network (CDN) management system and Inlet Technologies' Spinnaker live streaming appliances.
The tight integration enables a turnkey Web TV offering for multichannel providers, such as cable and telco operators and network service providers worldwide, who are looking to provide access to their content via the Web for existing subscribers or to new subscribers via an over-the-top application.
Advanced redundancy between the technologies from Broadpeak and Inlet ensures highly reliable, high-performance adaptive nitrate (ABR) encoding from Inlet that powers the delivery of content over IP networks provided by Broadpeak. The easy to operate, pre-configured system dramatically trims deployment time and eliminates costs for integration and troubleshooting. The Broadpeak system also features advanced monitoring of the encoded content to ensure quality and network performance.
Jacques Le Mancq, Broadpeak's President and CEO, said: "We're excited to offer customers a turnkey solution like this thanks to our collaboration with a trusted name like Inlet Technologies. We recognise our responsibility to help network operators reach new audiences easily and efficiently. This pre-configured solution helps our customers exploit new opportunities - and all the systems work has been done for them."
Focused on CDN and video-on-demand (VoD) servers, Broadpeak is a spinoff from Technicolour, formed by a team of experts who previously worked at Technicolour and spent years working with large-scale deployments by leading IPTV, cable and hybrid pay-TV operators worldwide.
The scalable Broadpeak Mediator system enables network service providers to efficiently deliver content to multiple screens, over any type of network, using intelligent popularity management to optimise system storage capacity and system load balancing to ensure high performance.
The system's servers feature redundancy and fall-over management and network topology is easily managed for efficiency using advanced, secure, multilayered PoP technology. Ideal for over-the-top Web television delivery, Mediator also provides geolocation and geoblocking features for Internet streaming. It can be used as a private CDN or installed as a wholesale platform.
Spinnaker is Inlet Technologies' family of award-winning real-time streaming appliances. Spinnaker's robust, reliable platform can stream in multiple formats to any device, including iPhone, iPad, feature phones and smart phones. Spinnaker offers full support for adaptive nitrate streaming, which allows viewers to move seamlessly from one resolution and data rate to another, without pausing or buffering.
Donald Bossi, CEO of Inlet Technologies, said: "Collaboration with a leading CDN provider like Broadpeak helps Inlet Technologies meet its goal of enabling consumers to view content when and where they want it. Through this key partnership with Broadpeak we help content providers to extend their reach, content distributors to increase subscriber satisfaction and both groups to realise greater value from their content. We're happy to partner with suppliers like Broadpeak who share our vision of innovative, reliable solutions that deliver quality content."
