Broadpeak announces 30 Gbps streaming capacity for BkS400 servers
Broadpeak has announced that its BkS400 video cache servers have been optimised with a streaming capacity of up to 30 Gbps. The new capability allows operators to efficiently deliver video content while ensuring the best quality of service for end-users through HTTP adaptive streaming technology.
The BkS400 servers feature an open, web-based architecture that provides operators with the flexibility to support any HTTP format, including Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HDS and MPEG-DASH. When integrated with Broadpeak’s BkM100 CDN Mediator, operators can improve the management of failover and load-balancing tasks. The BkS400 servers utilise a variety of sophisticated cache methods that, when combined with the BkM100’s load balancing rules, reduce an operator’s cache miss ratio. The BkS400 is also integrated with most of the industry’s popular origin servers to support a ‘best-of-breed’ approach to content delivery.
“Our latest software version of the BkS400 streamer, running on Intel-based off-the-shelf servers, now features a very high throughput that makes it both efficient and affordable to deliver high-quality video content over the open Internet,” says Jacques Le Mancq, president and CEO of Broadpeak. “By providing operators with 30 Gbps of full-line rate streaming capacity per unit and broad HTTP format support, the BkS400 servers are the ideal server solution for video streaming.”
