PowerMedia Media Resource Broker

PowerMedia Media Resource Broker

The PowerMedia™ Media Resource Broker (MRB), a standards compliant, software-based Media Resource Broker that allows application developers, service providers and enterprises to dynamically scale and distribute a media server resource pool across disparate applications and datacenters. When used with one or more PowerMedia™ XMS media servers, the PowerMedia MRB provides a reliable and resource-efficient software-based media-processing platform for scaling rich media applications such as conferencing, transcoding, and Interactive Voice Response (IVR). PowerMedia MRB’s intelligent load balancing resource allocation features make a clustered pool of media servers appear as a single media server element to the application server to reduce application complexity and improve application server performance by offloading media load balancing and management functions. High availability, redundancy, and smart failover with call preservation features provide scalability and reliability.



  • Media resource abstraction
    Automatic load balancing, resource allocation & re-allocation allow a pool of media servers to appear as a single media server to applications and users - eliminates the need for the application or proprietary load balancers to handle these functions
  • Rapid application integration
    • Standards-compliant media server controllable by a multitude of standardized media server interfaces or RESTful API • Rapid plug-and-play style integration with existing applications
  • Increased reliability
    High availability, intelligent failover, and stateful call preservation features add local and geographic redundancy options while increasing uptime
  • Efficient load balancing and resource assignment
    Allows for maximal media resource utilization to minimize the media resource CAPEX required
  • Cloud-ready virtualized software
    Software agility and powerful management interfaces reduce the effort required for operations and maintenance, minimizing OPEX
