At IBC 2008, BitBand
will demonstrate how the company is increasing IPTV adoption among existing and new deployments by catering to scalability and growth demands with a differentiated offering focused on a quality viewing and entertainment experience. Visitors will see how BitBand's scalable intelligent Content Delivery Network and new QualiCTV Quality-of-Experience IPTV solution for fast channel change, provide a cost-effective path for scaling up IPTV services for both on-demand and broadcast content to IPTV service providers all over the world.
QualiCTV helps IPTV service providers improve their service and increase customer satisfaction by mitigating several IPTV challenges, such as packet loss due to errors on access lines and slow channel change. Compared to other products addressing similar industry issues, BitBand's QualiCTV is already integrated with major STB vendors and offers a solution that does NOT require network modification to enable the service.
The main benefits of QualiCTV include:
- Improving subscribers' QoE by accelerating the channel change time and overcoming packet loss due to infrastructure limitations
- Enabling a highly scalable solution in which one server can support tens of thousands of subscribers.
- Offering a solution agnostic to network topology and vendor-specific components, as well as a simple integration which can be seamlessly introduced to an existing service.
BitBand's intelligent CDN solution is a comprehensive content delivery platform that enables cost-effective scaling in terms of both number of subscribers and amount of content, while allowing low traffic load over the network, minimal storage requirements and reduced OPEX. BitBand CDN is composed of a extensive and automated content distribution and management suite, highly scalable streaming and storage solution and boosted broadcast TV QoE solution.
