What is one of the worst things that could possibly happen during live video conference streams to all your employees, customers, or partners? A total breakdown, which would affect not only your live stream but also your network due to increased bandwidth usage, is definitely on top of the list. Many large companies struggle with and fear this problem. To prevent congestion and protect the network, companies engage professional event agencies and know the need for an eCDN. Read more about our solutions for efficient video delivery with a P2P eCDN.

Perform a dry run for your corporate streaming events and stress-test your network

Testing the capacity of your network: Especially for critical live events, you want to make sure that everything works out perfectly. Sometimes, the setup of the P2P CDN meets certain burdens like a particular setup, browsers, or technical variables. Here’s where StriveCast’s Silent Testing feature comes into play: It basically is a dry run for your event and stresses your network – without interrupting business workflows and users. This way, the StriveCast Silent Test lets you simulate your event and the capacity of your network.

The StriveCast Silent Testing enables you to:

How it works: No installations needed on your users’ devices

Our Silent Testing mode works through a Chrome browser plugin that can be downloaded via the StriveCast Portal and centrally rolled out once by the IT department via the Google Admin Console or via the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). Alternatively, we can also offer a native client for native testing if needed in your company’s or client’s infrastructure. Once this is completed, you can silently simulate a live stream and form peering groups “under the hood.”

When setting up a silent test, you can choose a predefined setting and select the devices you want to include. During the test, you can check stats like bandwidth savings and buffering ratio in real-time and get a full analysis afterward.

Any upcoming large and important events that you want to make sure are a success?
