Maxcom Telecomunicaciones Improves OTT Multiscreen Offering With Broadpeak Solutions

RENNES, France — Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and live and video-on-demand (VOD) servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, hybrid TV and mobile operators worldwide, today announced that Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, an integrated telecommunications services operator based in Mexico, has chosen Broadpeak solutions to improve its OTT multiscreen service offering. Utilizing a combination of Broadpeak’s CDN manager, streaming server, and video delivery analytics solutions, Maxcom Telecomunicaciones will be able to cost-effectively deliver more live and VOD channels to subscribers while providing a superior quality of service (QoS).

“In order to expand our service offering, we needed flexible, scalable CDN solutions that offer easy integration with our existing service platform and guaranteed quality,” said Miguel Ceballos, VP Operation at Maxcom Telecomunicaciones. “Broadpeak’s systems not only support a wide range of video formats, device types, and third-party equipment, they are also very scalable, providing us with a future-proof solution. Partnering with Broadpeak, we will be able to provide our customers with a high-quality TV viewing experience that includes more live channels and video-on-demand, than ever before.”

Broadpeak’s BkS300 and BkS400 servers offer broad format support (e.g., Apple® HLS, Microsoft® Smooth Streaming, Adobe® HDS, and MPEG-DASH), enabling Maxcom Telecomunicaciones to deliver HLS live and VOD content to any screen. Leveraging HTTP adaptive bit rate technology, the servers guarantee that viewers receive the best possible video quality.

The operator will deploy Broadpeak’s CDN Mediator BkM100, a unified content delivery network manager, to effectively manage load balancing and failover tasks. Based on an open architecture, the BkM100 offers seamless integration with service platforms and content management systems, making it easy for Maxcom Telecomunicaciones to integrate into the network.

Broadpeak’s BkA100 video delivery analytics software solution aggregates data from various components of the video delivery chain, providing Maxcom Telecomunicaciones with meaningful information about video consumption and service quality in a variety of formats. Using the BkA100, Maxcom Telecomunicaciones personnel will be able to receive daily reports about content, sessions, VOD and live services, alarm information, and more.

“Delivering a high quality of service on every screen is absolutely critical for today’s television operators if they want to avoid customer churn,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. “By providing the total CDN solution — from streaming servers to network management and video delivery analytics — we take the complexity out of content delivery, enabling leading operators like Maxcom Telecomunicaciones to expand their service offering without sacrificing quality and without having to make a large investment in their network infrastructure.”
