Quickplay has launched its mobile content delivery network (CDN), an embedded middleware platform that manages the end to end delivery of content over LTE-Broadcast (LTE-B).

The solution provides operators with new commercial opportunities to launch differentiated next-generation TV services across a range of new use cases, while dramatically improving the economics and scale of deployments.

With the full integration and launch of mobile CDN, Quickplay’s next-generation video platform is uniquely designed for operators and content programmers to begin commercializing innovative services in LTE-B, including push video-on-demand (VOD), live televised events, the delivery of broadcast media streams and digital signage.

The embedded middleware platform integrates with existing CDNs and leverages Quickplay’s software defined headend to ingest, package and publish content, making it possible for on demand content to be distributed over any LTE network through the caching of pre-positioned content on LTE enabled devices.

Quickplay’s API Gateway, Virtual Set Top Box, provides support for powerful modules and features that unify broadcast and unicast video headend capabilities for linear and video-on-demand distribution.

“We are very bullish on the future of LTE-B and are poised to help providers around the world monetize mobile video and large file distribution,” said Wayne Purboo, CEO and co-founder of Quickplay.
