TANDBERG and Packet Loss
Source: TANDBERG, now part of Cisco
This paper is intended to describe the packet loss robustness features available with TANDBERG's products. These features include: Intelligent Packet Loss RecoveryTF (IPLRTF), Downspeeding, Quality of Service (QoS). The above mentioned features are all available on the following products: TANDBERG MCU 16+16 / 8+8, TANDBERG GW, TANDBERG 8000, TANDBERG 7000, TANDBERG 6000, TANDBERG 2500, TANDBERG 1000, TANDBERG 880, TANDBERG 800, TANDBERG 550, TANDBERG 500. The IPLR feature is not intended to replace Quality of Service (QoS) techniques which may be employed on IP networks to reserve bandwidth or set precedence on video traffic. However, in the rare event that QoS techniques fail, IPLR is designed to overcome transient packet loss situations and reduce the impact these losses may have on the current video traffic. To fully understand what IPLR offers, an understanding of QoS and video compression are recommended. This paper briefly describes each before describing the details of TANDBERG's IPLR.
