Broadpeak’s BkS400 Servers Reach Streaming Capacity of 30 Gbps

That streaming capacity enables operators to deliver video content over the open Internet

Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network technologies and video-on-demand servers, says its high-performance BkS400 video cache servers now have a streaming capacity of up to 30 Gbps.
The BkS400’s ability to leverage that streaming capacity enables operators to efficiently deliver video content while ensuring quality of service for end users through HTTP adaptive streaming technology, Broadpeak says.
“Our latest software version of the BkS400 streamer, running on Intel-based off-the-shelf servers, now features a very high throughput that makes it both efficient and affordable to deliver high-quality video content over the open Internet,” said Jacques Le Mancq, Broadpeak’s president and CEO. “By providing operators with 30 Gbps of full-line rate streaming capacity per unit and broad HTTP format support, the BkS400 servers are the ideal server solution for video streaming,” he says.
The BkS400 servers feature an open, Web-based architecture that provides operators with the flexibility to support any HTTP format, including Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, Adobe HDS, and MPEG-DASH, the company says.
When integrated with Broadpeak’s BkM100 CDN Mediator, operators can improve the management of failover and load-balancing tasks, according to the firm. The BkS400 servers utilize a variety of sophisticated cache methods that, when combined with the BkM100’s load balancing rules, reduce an operator’s cache miss ratio.
