how it works

How it works

Boro is a client-server application consisting of 2 parts: a software Boro probe and a Boro server designed to collect and process statistics.


Elecard Boro software probes monitor packet loss, video freeze for UDP/HLS/DASH/RTP/HTTP/SRT/RTMP streams. In addition, Boro allows performing ad insertions control through SCTE-35 markers (for MPEG-TS and HLS).


The solution provides fast and cost-effective monitoring of content delivery networks and ensures localization of the most common violations.


  1. Boro probes are distributed over the network:  at the head-end station, at input streams monitoring points and after transcoding, multiplexing and encrypting modules; at end-points of main delivery networks, signal distribution points and last mile locations.
  2. The user starts the probe in the monitoring point. Tasks for analysis are assigned to the probe in the dashboard of the Boro account. Boro probe detects violations in the stream and transfers the detailed statistical information to Elecard Boro server.
  3. The server aggregates the received data, provides reports in easy-to-understand graphic form for each segment of the network in the web browser, and ensures fast email notification about network violations.
