RENNES, France -- April 12, 2016 -- Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and services for pay TV operators and content providers, today announced that it has teamed up with Alpha Networks, an innovative software company focused on CMS/CRM back-ends, and Squadeo, a leading global provider of video players, to create a complete turnkey solution for content distribution, including offer and subscriber management, and playback on all device types. The platform guarantees a unique video experience for end-users on any device.

"User experience is of the utmost importance when it comes to pay-TV services," said Nicolas Delahaye, CTO at Squadeo. "Together with our partners, we are offering a differentiated experience, with YouTube-like scrubbing and instant Facebook-like video startup that responds to end-users' expectations."

"By bringing to market a fully integrated solution that addresses the video expectations created by big players such as Google and Netflix, Alpha Networks, Broadpeak, and Squadeo allow operators to compete on a similar footing," said Guillaume Devezeaux, CTO at Alpha Networks.

The end-to-end solution provides pay-TV operators with a validated offering from three technology providers with years of expertise and numerous OTT multiscreen deployments. In addition to the standard features expected from a robust video delivery system, the solution increases innovation and synergy, leading to superior experiences for operators and their end-users. Using the zero-buffering video solution, operators can maximize premium video consumption.

"In the multiscreen environment, pay-TV operators require efficient, flexible, and future-proof video delivery platforms that can be deployed swiftly while setting them apart from the competition in terms of user experience," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak. "By joining forces with Alpha Networks and Squadeo, we are demonstrating how a best-of-breed, end-to-end solution is the ideal choice for delivering fast time to market and an advanced feature set."

To complement the solution, Broadpeak's analytics solution allows operators to dig deeper into the root causes of video delivery issues, providing feedback on what is going on at the delivery system (i.e., servers and network) and Squadeo player levels, enhancing end-users' QoE.

A demonstration of the complete solution will be available at the 2016 NAB Show at the Broadpeak booth SU10402CM.
