Singapore’s StarHub delivers HLS video with Broadpeak

Singaporean telco StarHub has chosen content delivery network and video server solutions from French firm Broadpeak to power its live over-the-top video services, delivered in a variety of adaptive streaming formats including Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS).

The telco, which launched its TV Anywhere service in July of last year, has deployed Broadpeak’s BkM100 Mediator CDN manager and BkS300 multiformat video streaming servers to power its live IP video services.

Lin Shu Fen, head of home solutions at StarHub, said: ”Broadpeak solutions now enable us to support HLS adaptive bitrate streaming, ensuring for the first time that we can deliver high-quality video in this popular format to our customers.

“Broadpeak CDN management and streaming server solutions dramatically improve the quality of our live television services in addition to providing us with the flexibility to support additional applications like VOD without having to make costly changes to our global architecture.”

In addition to TV Anywhere, StarHub also launched a managed IPTV service called ‘StarHub TV on Fibre’ last March, delivered over the country’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (NGNBN).
