Introduced April 1, the StreamScope eRM monitoring and analysis product will be integrated into Juniper's M and MX Series routers to improve the monitoring of video streaming by simplifying network design and operations through higher performance and better space efficiency over current offerings, all of which Juniper officials said improves performance and scale while lowering TCO.
The StreamScope eRM can be integrated with Juniper's M Series Multiservice Edge Router platform-which combines IP/MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) capabilities that integrate multiple networks into a single infrastructure-and MX Series router platform, which provides Ethernet switch capabilities. Include the JunOS Software, and the new product does away with the need for specific appliances for video monitoring, company officials said.
