Broadpeak announces plans to showcase ‘mobile-first’ CDN solution

After an absence from trade shows for more than a year due to the COVID-19 global health crisis, Broadpeak is excited to exhibit at Mobile World Congress 2021, which will take place at Fira de Barcelona from 28 June to 1 July. During the show, Broadpeak will highlight solutions that improve video streaming over mobile networks as well as optimisations for 5G networks, including a mobile-first CDN solution with advanced functionalities and far-edge cloud capabilities for mobile and 5G streaming.

“Last year we saw a significant increase in video consumption on mobile devices and explosive growth in fixed wireless access video services leveraging 5G networks,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. “As a leading content delivery network provider, Broadpeak has strong expertise in CDNs. At Mobile World Congress, we look forward to sharing our CDN’s powerful mobile network features for video streaming over 4G and 5G.”

Broadpeak’s CDN helps operators overcome the challenges related to traffic peaks and network congestion, guaranteeing a superior video experience while keeping costs under control and maximising video streaming business cases for 5G.

Meanwhile, Broadpeak’s S4Streaming significantly improves video streaming QoE in mobile networks, with network-controlled adaptive bit rate (ABR) streaming technology that handles bandwidth measurement and video segment selection on the server side. At Mobile World Congress 2021, Broadpeak will showcase how S4Streaming allows operators to take control over video streaming for various use cases, such as mobile traffic peaks, fixed wireless access, and low-latency content.

The company also offers a set of far-edge cloud CDN capabilities dedicated to mobile and 5G streaming. At Mobile World Congress, Broadpeak will introduce innovative edge caching functionalities, such as 5G and MEC integration, multicast ABR in contribution mode, and edge CDN orchestration (dynamic caching VNF/CNF placement), and will share the company’s expertise and collaborations with the private and public cloud.

By streaming video content from the far edge of the mobile and 5G network, operators can deliver low-latency video streams, reduce congestion and provide faster start-up times, without rebuffering.
