Boston, MA – June 29, 2016 — Ramp announced today that Ramp’s AltitudeCDN™ OmniCache™, the first standards-based solution for distributing live and on-demand video webcasts, and AltitudeCDN Multicast+, the next-generation multicast solution for enterprises, will now support SNMP, the widely used standard for network performance monitoring and diagnostics, for end point video stream monitoring.
Most enterprises rely on common SMNP management tools from NetScout, HP, Cisco, and other leading vendors to monitor network performance, detect anomalies, and diagnose problems. For the first time, network administrators can extend their view of the network infrastructure to include video content at end point level granularity. Leading SNMP tools can now monitor AltitudeCDN OmniCache and Multicast+ servers to learn the status of video streams globally throughout the organization, alongside other network elements, switches and servers.
“As data sources multiply across the enterprise, network administrators want to consolidate around standard management tools, rather than switching among management dashboards for various applications,” said Stephen Blankenship, vice president of product and operations at Ramp. “With its standards-based approach to enterprise video stream monitoring, AltitudeCDN joins the video delivery network infrastructure, offering the integrated management, scalability, and security that enterprises require.”
Enterprise-wide SNMP management can now be applied to live video broadcasts and demand waves of on-demand video. As audiences join a broadcast, they generate a surge in video traffic. In this critical period, streaming video broadcasts can fail unless problems are quickly diagnosed. With near real-time data, network administrators can more quickly spot, diagnose and fix problems as they arise in live video streams, as well as using historical data for troubleshooting.
Video has exploded across the enterprise, in many formats, from diverse sources. AltitudeCDN OmniCache and Multicast+ accept virtually any video source, and support both live and on-demand video, for a single, cost-effective approach to enterprise video distribution. The new SNMP capability is now available in both products.
