Your eCDN servers may be distributed all over your network, but that doesn’t mean you need to administer them that way. Altimeter is your one-stop eCDN shop—a single, web-based interface for managing all your Multicast+ and OmniCache instances.
Multicasting made easy
Altimeter makes it easy to set up live events over multicast. First configure your Multicast+ channels and senders. Then simply select the start and stop times, channels and senders to use, and the content source. With a single click Altimeter generates the link your viewers will use to launch the event.
Build your best broadcast
Need to set up complex broadcast scenarios for your live events? No problem. Organize your Multicast+ senders and channels into hierarchies based on logical groupings such as geography or organization. Then use the tree structure to quickly assign them any way you want to events.
Intelligent cache configuration
Altimeter gives you a simple interface for provisioning and configuring all your OmniCache instances. Flexible pattern matching algorithms—including regular expressions and nested expressions—can be used to set up advanced cache routing rules that orchestrate the most optimal flow of video traffic on your network.
Predictive video delivery
Avoid spikes in bandwidth utilization during large scale video on demand events such as pre-recorded executive messages or required training. Schedule your videos to pre-position on OmniCache during quiet hours so they are available immediately when viewers start requesting them.
Real-time diagnostics and troubleshooting
Dashboards provide an integrated view of your entire eCDN environment. Visually monitor status and performance everywhere on the network. Quickly fetch diagnostic data with a single click to investigate problems and troubleshoot in a jiffy.
Uninterrupted viewing experience
Distribution bottlenecks and other delivery issues are bound to happen from time to time. Redirecting viewers to a new broadcast source during a live event is a nightmare. Until now. Altimeter lets you handle these problems gracefully and transparently. Imagine how nice it will be to reroute viewers to a new video stream without having them do anything. They may not even notice. Now that sounds like a dream.
Bridge streaming gaps on the network
Fragmented multicast-enabled networks are not uncommon. Pockets of viewers may not have access to the multicast stream, but they don’t have to live on a video-deprived island. Set up a unicast fallback for locations where the network is not multicast enabled. Use OmniCache as the fallback for the least impact to the network and the best playback performance.
Enterprise ready, enterprise approved
Centralized licensing, configuration and management. Advanced diagnostics, troubleshooting and traffic routing. Comprehensive performance data and utilization statistics. Nothing puts you in control of your enterprise streaming infrastructure like Altimeter.
