However, we decided to point out briefly the most important things you should know for Viblast ePDN before reading the current article on the subject.
It is a complete software-based solution, i.e. there is zero hardware involved in the integration
It also uses no plugins or exe files thanks to the innovative technologies it is powered by - WebRTC and MSE
It allows you to stream seamlessly in an enterprise environment. You can leave all buffering, video lags and other performance issues in the past.
The video quality (and the QoE) is improved twofold
The optimization (or, the network offload) reaches up to 98% in a group of 100+ people
The PoC is made in less than a day and integration takes no longer than a week. It is also effortless on the client-side.
It has no access to the end-users’ workstations and data, which means it is completely secure
Viblast ePDN meets all the requirements enterprises have for a streaming solution - it is secure, it is self-scalable, easily integratable and brings a new level of quality to the table!
With Viblast ePDN enterprises can stream numerous events - online trainings or webinars, product launches or investor relations, executive townhalls or all-hands meetings, employee on boarding or HR & Benefit updates, and what not.
Still, there are numerous factors on which the optimization depends: topology, number of employees, number of offices, internet connection and so on.
Thus, we decided to pay a little more attention to the way Viblast ePDN works in different work environments.
We chose three scenarios that can give you a better idea of the different situations and the way Viblast ePDN works in each of them.
We have a company with five offices in each end of the country, thus, they are not close to each other. Now, in each office there are 200 employees and the broadband connection of the offices is 100mbps which is enough for their daily operations. Every three months there is an online event that all 1000 employees should attend.
How can they do that with high quality video stream and without any video lags, buffering or service outages of any sort?
Buying extra hardware or bandwidth to assure better connection may be justified in this case.
However, by using a solution that optimizes their already existing resources, they will save themselves the complexity of changing their network infrastructure and still have a solution that works great!
Innovation has a lot of power and it is not to be underestimated - WebRTC and P2P both work to your advantage and if it is as simple as to use the already existing connections between the viewers, then why not do it? Viblast ePDN does exactly this - it will substantially improve your network performance and, considering that in this case the viewers are grouped based on their IP behind the same WAN in groups of more than 100, the optimization reaches 98%. Only a couple of viewers will download the stream from the original source and will share it with the others. Thus, the rest of the employees will get the stream from each other.
This means that everyone will be able to watch a high quality stream without extra resources.
The company has 100 or 200 offices spread all over the country and in each office there are between 10 and 15 employees working.
Viblast ePDN cannot reach as high level of optimization as in the case above because the viewers are in groups that are with less than 100 people. However, it still solves all the performance issues during the video playback, and the optimization will be good, because only one employee in the office will fetch the stream from the server and will share his resources with the other viewers. Moreover, there is no need for investment in extra hardware, which is completely unjustified in this case with so few viewers.
This scenario is a combination between the other two. We have two big offices with 200 employees in each and many small ones with 10-15 people working there.
In this case, Viblast ePDN is more than welcome since it will solve the bottleneck problem of the big offices - it will simply remove it, and the results will be amazing (again around 98% network offload) since the already existing resources will be used in the best possible way. The network performance will be substantially improved and each one of the employees will be able to watch a seamlessly running stream.
Same goes for the small offices as in the case mentioned above.
In conclusion, we hope those scenarios gave you a better idea of the way our solution can be applied. If you have any further questions or you are interested in purchasing Viblast ePDN, contact us and we will send you more detailed information.
