The Cisco® Media Delivery Engine 50IVB (MDE 50IVB) is a software-based application of the Cisco Enterprise Content Delivery System (ECDS) solution deployed on Cisco Services-Ready Engine (SRE) modules for the Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2). 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 50IVB is ideal for small-site deployments that require up to 200 simultaneous clients for media delivery and up to 100-Mbps total throughput as well as for deployments at locations with limited rack space. The Cisco MDE 50IVB comes with a base license of 25-Mbps throughput and up to 100 simultaneous streams. It is supported on Cisco UCS™ Express environments on Cisco SRE 900 and SRE 910 blades on Cisco ISR G2 routers.
