Scale up your monitoring system
Easy embedding of software probes within your encoder/transcoder/muxer or existing Fault Management System
Create your own custom-configured solution
Powerful set of tools and components to build a reliable Fault Management System on your own
Measure if the network can provide better service to selected network traffic over various underlying technologies
Check how you can tune your streaming to improve the overall acceptability of your service, as perceived subjectively by the end-user
Elecard Probo SDK package comprises: software probes, server sample and documentation. QoS and QoE software probes can be installed at any point of delivery network; they detect stream errors and send all information to the aggregation server. A simple sample of the server software illustrates inter-application communication. Probo SDK API describes the client-server application programming interface in detail which helps to develop the system meeting any requirements.
