Alvalinks Launches First Video-Aware Network Observability Suite

Alvalinks has launched a live IP video network observability suite, which proactively analyzes the health of the network. CloudriderTM delivers a single pane of glass to simplify and automate troubleshooting for live video delivery over the Internet, drastically reducing time to resolution and ensuring operational efficiency.

Cloudrider is the first true network observability SAAS platform designed for media applications. Unlike monitoring solutions that only identify the outcome, Cloudrider is able to pinpoint the root cause of outages and errors in a video stream. It gathers real time stats, IP flows, and toolsets to evaluate the broadcast and media network performance.

By comparing packets and bitrate both at source and delivery, Cloudrider is able to alert video providers of any packet loss. It provides accurate network intelligence, including information on jitter, latency, and minimum optimal buffer for delivery.

Adi Rozenberg, co-founder, Alvalinks, commented: “Alvalinks was founded to bridge the gap between networking complexities, and the absolute need to leverage live video over the internet. When dealing with live video, it is simply not sustainable if it takes several weeks to solve errors, as is often the case. This is making streaming over the Internet cumbersome and needlessly difficult. We provide the tools to give video providers complete observability and peace of mind, helping them maximise the benefits of live video over the Internet.”

Customers include technology vendors and service providers, using Alvalinks to monitor networks for their own customers, as well as multiple large broadcasters worldwide.  

Gabriel Kerner, CEO, Alvalinks, added: “Video providers are under increasing pressure to adapt to rapidly evolving consumer habits, where agility and flexibility are key when creating and making live video content available across the world. This is accelerating a transition to cloud workflows and internet delivery, however until now there has been no way to continuously observe the network and pinpoint errors, in real-time, with that delivery. We believe this technology changes the game for live video delivery.”

The Alvalinks team will be at NAB New York from 24th – 26th October. Get in touch to book a meeting.
