Exterity's New AvediaStream c1110 Now with Monitor Blade
Exterity, a provider of enterprise IPTV (News
) communication solutions, expanded its AvediaStream c1110 IPTV headend chassis.
The AvediaStream c1110 is the IPTV headend of choice for organizations demanding the highest levels of reliability and redundancy. The enhanced product comes with the addition of a system monitoring blade.
'The new monitor blade allows us to provide a new level of IPTV system robustness for organizations where the system is business critical or revenue generating,' said Colin Farquhar, chief executive officer at Exterity.
'Administrators will be able to access the blade remotely through a Web interface to receive a comprehensive status of the AvediaStream chassis, ensuring any disruptions to the IPTV service are kept to a minimum,' Farquhar added.
By enabling monitoring of the chassis fan speed, power supplies and blade health and temperature, Exterity is now providing early warning of any issues which may affect the reliable delivery of the IPTV services supported by the AvediaStream c1110.
The AvediaStream c1110 monitor blade features twenty external LED's providing an immediate visual indication of the status of each of the blade slots, fans and power supplies of the chassis, highlighting any problems before actual failure. The monitor blade will be able to communicate changes to the AvediaStream c1110 over the network protocol SNMP to allow SNMP management tools such as Exterity's AvediaServer Director to inform administrators of the system status.
The monitor blade will additionally be able to remotely power up and power down individual AvediaStream IPTV modules in the chassis, reducing power consumption when, for example, the chassis contains redundant modules for any failover requirements an installation might require.
Exterity helps organizations maximize the value of TV and video content by delivering it over a building, campus or metropolitan-area IP network to TVs, PCs and AV display equipment. The company is set to demonstrate its new blade for the first time at IBC 2012, which takes place in Amsterdam from September 7-11, 2012, in the Connected World.
The company also plans to make a number of announcements regarding new products and additions to its portfolio.
