What makes it Innovative? Streamcore has an innovative approach to WAN application and communication delivery: provide state-of-the-art Network Performance Management features (application/network monitoring, network capacity planning, network troubleshooting, fault detection and prevention) with innovative visibility features (Google Maps based supervision map, VoIP/videoconferencing performance measurements…) and combine them with patented per session and behavior-based QoS algorithms to guarantee the best possible performance for interactive and real-time traffic. Streamcore key unique selling points are:

  1. Remote visibility + control services: an enterprise can deploy StreamGroomer appliances only at the Data Centers and centrally manage application performance for hundreds or thousands of remote branch office (no need to deploy software or hardware at the branch office).

  2. VoIP and videoconferencing management: by deploying StreamGroomer appliances at branch offices advanced passive performance measurements (packet loss, latency, MOS…) are provided for any real-time flows (VoIP, video). Advanced troubleshooting or high level reporting can be performed in order to follow communications performance from a network point of view. The best performance can be guaranteed by allocating dynamically a reserved bandwidth.

  3. Automated behavior based QoS engine: Streamcore patented ABBA engine automatically protects interactive sessions and guarantee a fair service between users whereas the advanced QoS protects VoIP /video and prioritize business applications with very simple provisioning.

  4. Business oriented management and reporting: enterprise can easily manage visibility and control services according to the IT or corporate organization (BU, geographical entities...). This makes Streamcore solutions very intuitive to use whether for technical people or decision-maker.

Targeted Users: Targeted users are government agencies and large enterprises with many sites connected to a corporate WAN. Service providers can also resell Streamcore solutions as a managed service.

Satisfied Customers: More than 290 customers including Volvo, Philips, Brink's.
