Broadpeak empowers video service providers so that they can stream the video content people love with a compelling experience. The French company, heardquarted in Rennes, designs video delivery software for content providers and network service providers deploying video streaming services over fixed, mobile or satellite broadband networks.
While video streaming only represents a small part of the digital industry carbon footprint today, the data usage from video sites and the part of video in the overall internet traffic has been increasing dramatically.
