Product Overview

The Cisco ® Media Delivery Engine 50WVB (MDE 50WVB) is a flexible software form factor for the Cisco Enterprise Content Delivery System (ECDS), running on Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) on a virtual blade environment. The Cisco ECDS is a media delivery system that helps organizations easily scale video and media delivery over their existing WAN infrastructure. The Cisco MDE 50WVB is ideal for small-site deployments that require up to 200 simultaneous clients for media delivery and up to 50-Mbps total throughput, as well as for deployments at locations with limited rack space. The Cisco MDE 50WVB comes with a base license of 50-Mbps throughput and up to 200 concurrent streams. It is supported on virtual blade environments on Cisco Wide Area Virtualization Engine 574 (WAVE 574) and Cisco WAE-674 Wide Area Application Engine appliances running Cisco WAAS software.
