On April 14th, 2011, ActionPacked! Networks successfully completed the interoperability testing with Medianet 2.2 for its product LiveAction 2.2 (press announcement) through the medianet systems management Cisco Developer Network (CDN) program.
LiveAction 2.2 support for medianet has been covered in our previous blogs: performance monitor as well as IPSLA Video Operations. However; with the the CDN program, the LiveAction 2.2 software has formally worked through an intensive test review against a purpose built medianet-enabled network.
Performance monitor collects performance statistics including loss, delay and jitter at the network elements. This approach provides the most extensive visibility because all the flows between video source and sink must go through the network infrastructure. It also eliminates the need for expensive probes, which could lead to increased costs for data collection and operational expense.
