VB330 10G PROBE

The VB330 Probe is the flagship in Bridge Technologies products range. With line-speed 10G performance and a massive multiprocessor architecture the VB330 can deliver monitoring and analytics of thousands of streams and a multitude of technologies in real-time and in parallel. The VB330 utilises the same visual and intuitive approach to monitoring and analytics as other probes.

The VB330 is aimed at monitoring the full cross section of services commonly found in media related network operations. As such the VB330 is very much a multi use tool to monitor network performance involving signal formats and areas as diverse as video IP multicast, video OTT/ABR streaming, voice trunks, video-on-demand unicast, Ethernet packet micro bursts, PCAP recording and general traffic protocol inspection.

Measurement analytics are avialble via easy drill-down functionality and the patented Bridge Technologies MediaWindow™ techonolgy renders monitoring and analysis of the complex much simpler. Two full VB330 can be placed within a 1 RU chassis, offering a performance to form-factor of up to 40 Gbit/s per 1RU.

Monitor up to 500 OTT/ABR streams at 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.

Monitor Voice or Video-on-Demand trunks using the Advanced Ethernet Option. Summarise traffic issues across whole trunk dynamically.

Identify packet micro bursting and pinpoint sources in violation. Micro bursting is a particularly important area when traversing 10G/1G network domains where queuing issues often arise with resulting packet loss. These issues are often non-trivial to identify due to their intermittent and complex nature.

Perform deep TR 101 290 analysis on up to 200 streams with all priority levels covered - Level 1, 2 and 3.

Perform PCAP packet capture and retrieval for offline analyis using 3rd party tools such as Wireshark or tcpdump.

All Bridge Technologies modules are self contained and based on embedded electronics. Each probe is built to carrier grade standards satisfying the most stringent requirements of the telecommunications and broadcast industries. Built for 24/7 operations and designed to go into edge and core router environments, the IP-Probes have been designed with industrial use in mind.
