VB330-V VIRTUAL PROBE

Similar to the VB330, the VB330-V is for high-traffic monitoring in core networks but the VB330-V operates on any standard high-performance server blade. With the same feature set and capabilities, the VB330 and VB330-V can be mixed and matched to achieve the most convenient configuration, depending on the user's requirements.



The VB330-V has been developed for Data Centre and Headend deployment. It can be installed almost instantly on standard blade servers to allow rapid scaling of capacity, appearing identical to any hardware VB330s installed at other points in the network - For example at a point of presence (POP). The virtual VB330-V is addressable by the Bridge Technologies VBC central controller-server in exactly the same way as the hardware probe, and through its Eii (External Integration Interface) can be integrated with third-party management and data systems.



Designed for extremely high-density applications at points of maximum data throughput in today’s core networks, the VB330 and VB330-V offer telcos, network operators and digital media organizations a monitoring solution with the potential for scaling to match any level of traffic, and delivering monitoring and analytics of thousands of streams and a multitude of technologies in real-time and in parallel.



The VB330 and VB330-V are designed for the full cross-section of services commonly found in media-related network operations, as a multi-use tool to monitor network performance involving signal formats and areas as diverse as video IP multicast, video OTT/ABR streaming, video-on-demand unicast, Ethernet packet micro bursts, PCAP recording and general traffic protocol inspection.

Up to 500 OTT/ABR streams may be monitored at the master play-out or at CDN origin server in all common streaming formats using the bulk OTT option. Streaming formats supported currently include Microsoft Smooth Stream™, Apple HLS™, Adobe HDS™, MPEG-DASH and basic RTMP. Measurement analytics are available via easy drill-down functionality and the patented Bridge Technologies MediaWindow™ technology which provides easy-to-assess graphical visualizations of the data.
