Broadpeak Introduces umbrellaCDN, Advanced CDN Selection Solution [PR]

Broadpeak Introduces umbrellaCDN, Advanced CDN Selection Solution [PR] | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Broadpeak today launched umbrellaCDN™, an innovative solution that offers content providers and pay-TV operators complete control over the allocation of video content to multiple CDNs. Utilizing umbrellaCDN, users can select the best CDN for live or VOD content at all times — according to various criteria — enabling them to provide the best possible quality of experience for end-users at the best possible cost.

 

Content providers can create parameter-based rules according to a wide range of criteria, including end-user geo-location, end-user ISP, type of content (e.g., live or VOD, pay or free, premium or trailer), and time of day or day of the week. Rules are managed through three distinct modes: quality of service, where the chosen CDN is the one that offers the best quality in a given region; load balancing, whereby sessions are divided between several CDNs; and quotas, with a maximum number of sessions allocated to each CDN.

In this post, we are going to provide you with details on the balancer and building of efficient video platform by optimal load distribution.
