The VB330 is the flagship embedded probe in Sencore’s VideoBRIDGE product line. With line-speed 10G performance and a dual input port option, the VB330 can deliver monitoring and analytics of thousands of streams and a multitude of technologies in real-time and in parallel.
The VB330 is aimed at monitoring the full cross section of services commonly found in media-related network operations. It is a very flexible tool for monitoring network performance involving signal formats and areas as diverse as video IP multicast, OTT/ABR streaming, SRT transmissions, Cable TV Remote-PHY/L2TP/DEPI tunnel services, voice trunks and video-on demand unicast. Additional benefit is provided by deeper IP layer inspection including measuring Ethernet packet microbursts, PCAP recording and general traffic protocol inspection.
With the add-on ETSI TR 101 290 MPEG analysis options and OTT capabilities, the VB330 becomes an all-around QoS powerhouse supporting simultaneous monitoring of up to 2000 streams/services with results viewable in the web UI and alarms delivered by SNMP or XML API. Network-wide results from the VB330 and other probes can also be collected and aggregated in the VideoBRIDGE Controller Server.
The ruggedized embedded hardware of the VB330 reduces power usage compared with server-based monitoring tools and provides an extended operating timeframe and lifetime. Up to two VB330 blades can reside in the VB300 or VB300-DC chassis.
