Italian telco operator TIM is optimising the QoE for live sports streaming with a multicast ABR (mABR) solution from Broadpeak. The solution is used on third-party content. “Thanks to Broadpeak’s mABR solution, which optimises network performance for streaming services, we provide the best technology for assuring an excellent customer quality of experience,” declares Crescenzo Micheli, Head of Technology and Innovation at TIM. “As a pioneer of multicast ABR technology, Broadpeak has solid experience and a reputation for delivering superior-quality live OTT content.”

Broadpeak’s mABR solution includes the BkE200 transcaster server, nanoCDN agent, SmartLib library, BkM100 video delivery mediator, BkA100 analytics, and BkA200 video delivery monitoring. The BkE200 transcaster server pulls source ABR streams and embeds them into multicast, reducing delivery costs while also solving scalability and potential quality issues.

“Streaming quality must be perfect in order to better enjoy OTT content, thanks to ultra-broadband connections,” comments Jacques Le Mancq, President and CEO at Broadpeak. “TIM is leading the way for premium OTT delivery with our mABR solution, which will support live OTT delivery on Smart TVs and other connected devices.”

Broadpeak provides CDN and video streaming solutions for content providers and Pay TV operators. The prime contractor for this project was CVE and according to that company’s CEO, Luca Catalano: “This is an important milestone for the transition of the video world towards IP.”
