The purpose of this video was to test the user experience of Virtual Bridges VERDE 3.0 over a variety of user environments, including:
- 100mbps LAN connection (3:45)
- A "global" WAN scenario, with 768kbps, variable latency between
250-350ms, and 1% packet loss (13:58)
- A "cross country" WAN scenario, with 1.5mbps, 75-150ms latency, and
0.5% packet loss (24:16)
- A "metro" WAN scenario, with 5.0mbps, 30-40ms latency, and 0.5%
packet loss (34:11)
Note about packet loss: Throughout the video, we variably referred to
the "global" and the "cross country" scenarios as having either 1% or
0.5% packet loss. I can assure you that regardless of what we said on
camera, the on-screen text (which matches the specifications above) is
accurate. Only the "global" scenario had 1% packet loss. The others were
set to 0.5%.
These videos are delivered via RTSP streaming, which means you can
