StarHub deploys Broadpeak’s content delivery network manager

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 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).

“Broadpeak solutions 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 improve the quality of StarHub’s live television services in addition to providing with the flexibility to support additional applications like VOD without having to make costly changes to architecture.

Broadpeak’s BkS300 servers streamline the delivery of video over managed or open Internet networks to a wide range of devices. The platform provides StarHub with a unified solution for video streaming in formats such as Microsoft Silverlight Smooth Streaming and Apple HLS for both live and on-demand applications.

Broadpeak’s BkM100 CDN Manager 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.

Moreover, StarHub can easily support additional streaming applications such as IPTV and cable TV in the future.
