VSTV Improves QoE for Subscribers With Broadpeak umbrellaCDN Solution

RENNES(18 Jul 2017)
Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, today announced that Vietnam Satellite Digital Television (VSTV) has deployed Broadpeak's umbrellaCDN CDN selector. Using umbrella CDN as a cloud-based solution, VSTV has the flexibility to select the best CDN to deliver live OTT content to subscribers. Choosing between multiple CDNs according to various criteria and load balancing the traffic, umbrellaCDN ensures a superior quality of experience (QoE) for end-users.
"Our main objective with this project was to deliver live OTT content with the best quality to subscribers located in Vietnam by relying on two different CDNs," said Nicolas Cazamayou, IT director at VSTV. "Broadpeak's umbrellaCDN meets all of our requirements, providing us with comprehensive analytics, a pay-as-you-grow business model, and the freedom to switch CDN service providers. By enabling us to deliver a superior QoE to subscribers, umbrellaCDN gives us an edge on the competition."
umbrellaCDN features an advanced analytics tool that gathers and displays information related to the session requests. Thanks to these analytics, VSTV is able to determine the number of viewers for speci?c content in a single platform. All of the session requests are centralized under umbrellaCDN and can be monitored in real time. Since umbrellaCDN is based on an OPEX business model, VSTV can deliver live OTT content without making a large investment in infrastructure.
"From a global perspective, OTT subscriptions are increasing dramatically. With so many subscription options available today, delivering an OTT service with high quality is very important," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. "By providing VSTV with the capability to monitor its OTT live service, balance traffic between multiple CDNs, and adjust video delivery based on the analytics, umbrellaCDN has made a huge impact on the QoE experienced by subscribers."
