The delivery of OTT services to remote subscribers presents a major challenge for service providers and telcos. Combine this with network congestion and the situation can become unviable.
According to EKT, satellite presents the ideal solution to these challenges. The ability to transport high bitrates to the network edge, with multicasting performance and smart pre-positioning of content makes satellite a highly sought-after alternative delivery medium.
At IBC2023, EKT will be demonstrating SKYflow with collaboration partners ST Engineering iDirect, EasyBroadcast and Broadpeak. It is described as a native IP over satellite ecosystem that offers cost-effective, ultra-fast, low latency delivery of live video to mobile devices and large screens alike for global audiences. EKT claims SKYflow has been selected as “the best solution by governments and satellite providers alike”.
SKYflow is the first deployed DVB-NIP system in the world, and at IBC it will be further enhanced by a security solution, priming its use for pay-TV operators around the world.
