Russian telecoms company Beeline has partnered with Broadpeak to launch a new TV Everywhere service.
Broadpeak will provide CDN solutions for the new service, which will power its live, VoD, catch-up and start-over TV content to a wide range of subscribers, through their set-top boxes, smart TVs, mobile devices and the internet.
Beeline will employ Broadpeak’s BkM100 video delivery mediator and BkS400 cache servers, deployed in various points of presence (PoPs) to ensure high-quality video streams for all subscribers across Russia on national and local channels.
It will also use Broadpeak’s BkA100 video delivery analytics in order to gather data about video delivery, monitor quality, generate statistics about content popularity, and provide feedback on what is going on at the servers, network, and player levels.
“For huge networks like ours in Russia, delivering TV services to customers in scale is a serious challenge,” said Oleg Karadzhi, CTO of Media Business at Beeline Russia. “We need a scalable and elastic video delivery solution with a low total cost of ownership, and that’s why we have chosen Broadpeak as our solutions provider. Our decision was based on Broadpeak’s extensive video streaming deployment experience and software-based approach to video distribution, all of which help to significantly reduce delivery costs while ensuring a superior QoE for Beeline TV subscribers.”
