TIM delivers enhanced quality of experience with Broadpeak’s multicast ABR solution
Italian telco operator TIM is optimising its live sports OTT delivery with a multicast ABR (mABR) solution from Broadpeak.
“Thanks to Broadpeak’s mABR solution, which optimises network performance for streaming services, we provide the best technology for assuring an excellent customer quality of experience,” said Crescenzo Micheli, head of technology and innovation at TIM. “As a pioneer of multicast ABR technology, Broadpeak has solid experience and a reputation for delivering superior-quality live OTT content.”
Broadpeak’s mABR solution includes the BkE200 transcaster server, nanoCDN agent, SmartLib library, BkM100 video delivery mediator, BkA100 analytics and BkA200 video delivery monitoring. The BkE200 transcaster server pulls source ABR streams and embeds them into multicast, reducing delivery costs while also solving scalability and potential quality issues.
“Streaming quality must be perfect in order to better enjoy OTT content, thanks to ultra-broadband connections,” said Jacques Le Mancq, president and CEO at Broadpeak (pictured). “TIM is leading the way for premium OTT delivery with our mABR solution, which will support live OTT delivery on smart TVs and other connected devices.”
Luca Catalano, CEO at prime contractor CVE, said: “This project is significant for CVE because we’ve invested heavily in video-over-IP technology throughout the years. CVE is happy to be an active part of the delivery of the mABR solution available for CDNs. This is an important milestone for the transition of the video world towards IP, and we’re proud that our IP knowledge and expertise made such a big, positive contribution to the deployment of the Broadpeak mABR solution.”
