Broadpeak’s nanoCDN™ Multicast ABR Solution Enables Exceptional Quality for Live Sports Streaming on Many Devices
CESSON-SEVIGNE, France — Aug. 31, 2023 — Broadpeak®, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, announced today that the global live sports streaming platform DAZN is using Broadpeak’s nanoCDN™ multicast ABR (mABR) solution to simplify OTT delivery. With nanoCDN, DAZN can leverage mABR capabilities from some of the largest network operators in Europe, enabling the delivery of live sports events with increased bandwidth savings for the ISPs and an outstanding quality of experience for the end-users.
“Over the last two years, we have been delivering live OTT sports content using Broadpeak’s multicast ABR solution and we’ve seen incredible results,” said DAZN chief technology officer, Sandeep Tiku. “For the ISPs we partner with, the amount of saved bandwidth is significant, and we plan to leverage multicast ABR in other ISP’s networks in Europe whenever possible. We look forward to working with other operators in Europe on proof of concepts that can be set up very quickly to highlight how mABR enables high-quality streaming of highly popular content.”
Broadpeak’s nanoCDN solution supports live sports streaming, including 4K content, on many devices, including telco set-top boxes, Android TV, Tizen and WebOS connected TVs, and tablets, via the DAZN app. By collaborating with operators and utilizing mABR on their networks, DAZN can achieve superior quality for subscribers, dramatically reduce buffering, crushing playback problems, and helping eliminate live traffic peaks on the ISPs’ networks.
nanoCDN also benefits operators, reducing traffic by up to 90% in some parts of the network and allowing more sustainable live sports streaming by reducing the infrastructure deployed.
Broadpeak and DAZN can model the benefit of nanoCDN on a particular ISP network based on historical delivery information, including quality of experience improvements and network capacity offload.
“Our success story with DAZN proves that multicast ABR is a powerful technology and a game changer for live OTT streaming, solving traditional problems related to scalability and QoE,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “By partnering with DAZN, we are unleashing a shift onto the industry, showing that collaboration between OTT platforms and operators is beneficial for everyone. With the support of low-latency streaming, ad insertion, and HTTPS nanoCDN usage, will continue to grow for a variety of OTT live use cases.”
Broadpeak will showcase its nanoCDN solution with DAZN at IBC2023 at stand 1.F76. More information about Broadpeak solutions can be found at https://broadpeak.tv.
