High Quality Video Streaming and Conferencing

Video applications can present numerous challenges for distributed enterprises. For example:

  • Video on Demand and streaming video are sensitive to packet delivery conditions, such as jitter and packet loss.
  • Both on-demand video and streaming video consume substantial bandwidth, which can quickly fill up an entire WAN connection
  • Videoconferencing is highly sensitive to jitter, packet loss and latency, resulting in poor video quality

Silver Peak improves the video experience in the following ways:

  • Multicast with Network Memory. Silver Peak eliminates the transfer of duplicate information across the WAN. For example, if 100 clients in an office are accessing a video stream, the first video stream is transferred and the remaining 99 sessions are eliminated, reducing network traffic substantially.
  • QoS is used to prioritize traffic and guarantee appropriate bandwidth to groom traffic as it enters the WAN. This reduces jitter and latency, enabling time-sensitive applications like video to be deployed in conjunction with other enterprise traffic..
  • Network Integrity protects traffic from packet loss due to network congestion, eliminating pixelation and dropped video sessions.
