Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery networks (CDN) and
video-on-demand (VOD) servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, and hybrid TV operators
worldwide, today announced that Singapore-based communications provider
StarHub has deployed Broadpeak’s BkM100 Mediator content delivery network
manager and BkS300 multiformat video streaming servers to power its live video
services. Utilizing Broadpeak’s highly flexible and customizable CDN and video
server solutions, StarHub can cost-effectively deliver live television content
in a variety of adaptive streaming formats, including Apple^® HTTP Live
Streaming (HLS), providing end users with a superior quality of service.

“Broadpeak solutions now enable us to support HLS adaptive bitrate streaming
ensuring, for the first time, that we can deliver high-quality video in this
popular format to our customers,” said Lin Shu Fen, head of home solutions,
StarHub. “Broadpeak CDN management and streaming server solutions dramatically
improve the quality of our live television services in addition to providing
us with the flexibility to support additional applications like VOD without
having to make costly changes to our global architecture.”

Designed to handle the growing demand for multiplatform content delivery,
Broadpeak's high-performance BkS300 servers streamline the delivery of video
over managed or open Internet networks to a wide range of devices. The highly
efficient platform provides operators with a unified solution for video
streaming in popular formats such as Microsoft^® Silverlight Smooth Streaming
and Apple HLS for both live and on-demand applications, enabling the provider
to easily add VOD functionality when needed.

Broadpeak’s BkM100 CDN Manager streamlines content delivery based on the type
of service and customer location. By continuously monitoring the popularity of
content based on usage patterns, it automatically pushes popular content to
the edge of the servers, while long-tail content remains on the larger central
library, lowering StarHub’s storage use and operating expenses.

“Content providers around the world are struggling to cost-effectively deliver
a high-quality television experience on numerous devices,” said Jacques Le
Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. “Leveraging adaptive bitrate technologies, Broadpeak’s
content delivery network solutions and video streaming servers ensure optimal
viewing quality for end users while minimizing CAPEX and OPEX for content
providers. As StarHub expands its video service offering to include on-demand,
Broadpeak solutions will easily scale without sacrificing video quality.”

Broadpeak will demonstrate a variety of CDN solutions, including the BkM100
Mediator and BkS300, at CommunicAsia 2013, stand BK3-01. More information
