Deutsche Telekom’s Business Development and Innovation (BDI) in partnership with Octoshape, announced a "..new Deutsche Telekom cloud-based video solution, introduced as “LiveStream Perform,” powered by Octoshape. The new service provides the best quality video distribution of over-the-top (OTT) content via fixed and mobile broadband networks.Powered by Octoshape’s streaming technology, LiveStream Perform is an entirely new way of experiencing live and on-demand video content. The patented technologies employ throughput optimization methods that enable TV-like playback quality over broadband networks worldwide. In addition, the suite of multicast technologies enables scale and efficiency for operators and provides predictable business models for broadcasters".
LiveStream Perform splits the initial stream source into streamlets, which are duplicated and transmitted across multiple paths in the Internet. In that way, if a link becomes congested, the content can still be automatically and securely delivered through a less congested link. In addition to the high levels of quality this affords, there are no constraints on the number or location of viewers.
