  • BT Group and Broadpeak have collaborated on a new live streaming technology called MAUD.
  • MAUD combines multicast ABR with nanoCDN to convert unicast streams to multicast for more efficient delivery.

BT Group and French IP solutions developer, Broadpeak, have joined forces to introduce a more efficient and sustainable method for live streamed video delivery known as Multicast-Assisted Unicast Delivery (MAUD). This technology, which builds upon Broadpeak’s multicast ABR and nanoCDN, aims to streamline the delivery of live content for major broadcasters and content companies. By converting personal unicast streams to multicast for network delivery and transforming them back to unicast at the player’s device, MAUD can save bandwidth and improve network scalability. This innovation allows ISPs to move away from traditional CDNs for live streaming content, providing a cost-effective and sustainable solution for delivering high-quality video content. The collaboration between BT Group and Broadpeak signals a shift towards more efficient video delivery methods that leverage network capabilities and multicast technology for improved live streaming experiences.
