IPTV/OTT solution uses advanced technical architecture, which is compatible with IPTV/OTT standard specification. It uses the latest computing and storage technology to provide a complete end-to-end IPTV/OTT solution and meet the trends of triple play and fixed-mobile convergence.
FiberHome IPTV/OTT solution includes four parts: Head End, Service Management Platform, CDN and Terminal.
Headend device includes receiver, transcoder and DRM. Receiver and transcoder are mainly for transferring and transcoding of live TV streaming.
DRM (Digital Rights Management) is for content security, it encrypts content on server side and decrypt on terminal.
Service management platform includes following subsystem: CMS (Content Management System), OSS (Operation and Supporting system), AAA (Authentication, Authorization, Accounting), EPG (Electronic Program Guide), NMS (Network Management System), TVMS (TV Message) etc. Service management is mainly responsible for content management, production management, subscriber/user management, authentication, EPG management, network management, terminal management and so on.
CDN (Content Delivery Network) is mainly responsible for the content storage, content cache, content distribution, content management (with CMS), user request routing, streaming for end user and so on. CDN usually contains central node and edge node. Central node stores content and CDN can push the content to edge node. End-user just needs to get content from an appropriate edge node instead of central node because the edge node usually is closer to end-user than central node. For small size network, Central node also acts as edge node to provide streaming. For the large size network, the regional node is optional.
Terminal software for STB (Set Top Box) and mobile phone provides a portal to access system and visit the content.
