The Cisco® Media Delivery Engine 10XVB (MDE 10XVB) is a flexible software form factor for running on VMware ESXi virtual environments as a streaming engine function for the Cisco Enterprise Content Delivery System (ECDS). 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 50IVB supports the Streaming Engine function of ECDS.
The Cisco MDE 10XVB is ideal for small-site deployments on generic x86 hardware platforms that require up to 200 simultaneous clients for media delivery and up to 100-Mbps total throughput. It is also a good choice for deployments at locations with limited rack space. The Cisco MDE 10XVB comes with options for licensing starting from 10-Mbps throughput to 100-Mbps throughput.
The Cisco MDE 10XVB is supported on ESXi virtual environments running on appropriate x86- based hardware configurations.
