Bouygues Telecom Picks Broadpeak BkE100 Servers
RENNES, France -- Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and video-on-demand (VOD) servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, and hybrid TV operators worldwide, today announced that Bouygues Telecom, the French telecommunications provider, has deployed Broadpeak's BkE100 Live RTP retry servers to manage its IPTV service on Bbox Sensation premium set-top boxes (STBs). Relying on the high-performance network servers, Bouygues Telecom can support packet loss recovery for live content on a variety of STBs, dramatically improving the quality of experience (QoE) for subscribers.
When packet loss is detected, the STB requests a retransmission of the missing packets according to RTP retry standards. Broadpeak's BkE100 server ensures missing packets are recovered before the decoding process begins, eliminating audio and video signal impairments.
Powered by Broadpeak's high-performance software, running on top of off-the-shelf servers, the BkE100 servers enable Bouygues Telecom to benefit from continuing performance improvements and reduced operating expenses. Capable of capturing up to 800 TV channels and supporting up to 100,000 simultaneous users, the Broadpeak BkE100 servers provide Bouygues Telecom with a scalable and cost-effective solution that guarantees a superior QoE over any IPTV system.
