We were commissioned by BBC Radio & Music to build a new version of the UK Radioplayer console. Radioplayer is a partnership between the BBC and UK commercial radio stations. Working with the BBC team we developed a player that gives audiences a simple and consistent online listening experience. This new version allows users to listen to live radio streams and on demand audio programmes and clips. Our brief was to deliver a stable application - no mean feat when you consider it has to cope with tens of thousands of concurrent listeners!
The BBC Radioplayer console receives huge levels of traffic with peak loads of over 81,000 concurrent listeners.
