Easy-to-use, interactive dashboard allows IT to monitor and analyze webcast performance and its impact on the network
BOSTON – February 6, 2019: Employee experience is a key success factor for internal live events, and the performance of your network can make or break it. What if you could pinpoint problems as they occur? Enter Ramp’s Event Analytics, a simple and intuitive dashboard that allows you to monitor AltitudeCDN™ Multicast+ events in real-time or perform post-event analysis to examine attendance, network performance, and measure return on investment (ROI).
“We worked closely with our customers to understand what data and information they need most—whether they’re monitoring a live event or creating a report for executives,” said Alan MacLeod, Vice President of Product at Ramp. “By exposing real insights and quantifiable metrics, they can identify ways to continually improve the viewing experience, demonstrate ROI, and better serve the business.”– Alan MacLeod, VP of Product
Multicast+ Event Analytics puts the power of information in the hands of IT. It allows them to:
- Monitor: Get a minute-by-minute view of key performance indicators—such as network impact, number of viewers, and quality of experience—on a geographic map during a Multicast+ event. Circles on the map indicate concentrations of viewers along with packet loss at each location.
- Identify: Quickly assess the health of the network, and identify areas of concern. The circles change in color with network performance, where green is good and red indicates employee experience may be impacted. Hover over any circle to analyze performance by location—all the way down to the individual device.
- Analyze: View data as individual events or an aggregate of past events geographically, historically in a chart, or in detail in a table. Use the interactive timeline to analyze network impact and other event statistics at specific moments in time.
Event Analytics is now available in the latest release of AltitudeCDN™ Altimeter for AltitudeCDN Multicast+, a next-generation multicast solution for distributing high-quality, stable video to all your viewers on corporate networks.
