Broadpeak enables BCN to deliver new OTT experience & save costs

Bhimavaram Community Network (BCN), an Indian multiple-system operator (MSO), has selected Broadpeak to power its new video-on-demand (VoD), over-the-top (OTT) service. 

Among the solutions offered by Broadpeak to support multicast and unicast streaming, is the nanoCDN multicast ABR solution, which will allow BCN to deliver live video to millions of viewers simultaneously on a wide range of devices, including RDK set-top boxes (STBs).

Srinivas Raju Rudraraju, Founder & Managing Director at Bhimavaram Community Network, said, “This will be the world’s first deployment of multicast ABR technology on an RDK STB for video streaming, and Asia’s first deployment of RDK STBs, which shows we are at the forefront of delivering world-class OTT experiences.”

“We are partnering with Broadpeak based on the company’s pioneering involvement in multicast ABR technology implementations, its expertise in both mABR and unicast delivery, and its strong knowledge of RDK integration.

“With nanoCDN, we can deliver a high quality of experience to a million subscribers, while cost-effectively managing the consumption peaks in our live service.”

Broadpeak’s nanoCDN solution relies on a software agent installed inside the RDK STBs to receive and translate multicast streams into unicast, reducing delivery costs and allowing BCN to avoid costly unicast traffic peaks in the network. nanoCDN ensures the highest Quality of Experience (QoE) possible for BCN’s OTT service by leveraging automated retransmission in the case of packet loss.

In addition, BCN will use Broadpeak’s BkM100 Video Delivery Manager, BkS400 HTTP Video Cache Servers, BkS350 Origin Packager, BkA100 Video Delivery Analytics, and BkA200 Video Delivery Monitoring to deliver live and VoD content to subscribers.
