Broadpeak ups capacity of cache servers
Broadpeak has cranked up the streaming capacity of its video cache servers have to a new maximum of 30 Gbps.
The software upgrade to the company’s BkS400 video cache server and the attendant capacity expansion improves operators’ ability to deliver video content while ensuring the best quality of service for end users through HTTP adaptive streaming technology.
Broadpeak's BkS400 servers feature an open, Web-based architecture. The system supports HTTP formats including Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HDS, and MPEG-DASH.
When integrated with Broadpeak's BkM100 CDN Mediator, operators can dramatically improve the management of failover and load-balancing tasks, the company claimed. 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," said 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."
