Things Viblast ePDN is:
Viblast ePDN is a streaming solution for enterprises which need to stream video content to their employees. It adds a distributed P2P layer to your existing network infrastructure and allows your viewers to share resources among each other.
What is the difference between Viblast bPDN and Viblast ePDN?
In the broadcasters case (Viblast bPDN) the topology of the network cannot be known. For Viblast ePDN to work as designed, the service must be configured with information about the topology of the network which is impossible in the broadcasters’ case. Thus, Viblast ePDN can optimise the corporate network up to 98%.
What are the benefits of using Viblast ePDN compared to other similar solutions?
It decentralizes the central load of the enterprise network while saving the complexity of changing the network infrastructure. It offers better network performance, fast implementation and requires no plugins, no third-party software and zero hardware.
What kind of technical support do you offer?
Can I use Viblast ePDN instead of Multicast?
Yes. Viblast ePDN offers a great alternative to multicast - peer-assisted video delivery. Thus, you are able to work with common streaming technologies stack without network bottleneck issues.
Do I need to replace or change my existing streaming solution/enterprise content delivery network (eCDN) to use Viblast EPDN?
No. Viblast ePDN integrates with and extends the capabilities of your existing infrastructure.
Do my employees need to install any third-party software or plugins?
