With nanoCDN multicast ABR, the company can ensure that OTT services are distributed by video content providers with a superior service quality. This innovative multicast ABR solution is the first of its kind deployed by a telecom and mobile operator to enable efficient multiscreen delivery of live television programs.MC Vision, the official broadcaster of Canal+ for Mauritius, recently introduced its myCanal multiscreen service utilizing Emtel's latest network broadcasting delivery features. By leveraging multicast capabilities of the network, nanoCDN will enable Emtel to infinitely scale the delivery of live video streams to a wide range of devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets, while providing a superior quality of service to customers.

nanoCDN technology relies on standard DOCSIS 3.0 and DSL/fiber home broadband gateways. Running Broadpeak technology, the Technicolor TC7200 broadband cable modems can receive and translate the multicast streams into unicast sessions for delivery to individual devices across the residential environment. This multicast-to-unicast process allows Emtel to save network bandwidth, enabling a fast Internet connection as well as delivery of high-quality live ABR video streams to any standard device within the home. Utilizing multicast and Broadpeak's nanoCDN technology, Emtel can deliver thousands of simultaneous streams using only a few megabits over the network.
