On this page, we describe the settings available for an edge server’s configuration profile. For more information about our edge servers, see Broadsign Edge Server.
To see similar settings for players, see Configuration Profiles – Players.
Configuration profiles are collections of settings pertaining to a particular range of Broadsign Core product versions. For example, you may have three separate edge servers in your network, each of different versions. If you want to assign configuration profiles to them, you need to create a separate profile for each edge server version. In this case, you would have three configuration profiles.
For more information about our edge servers, see Broadsign Edge Server.
To add a profile to a configuration, see Network Operations Tutorial – Create a Configuration.
To access a configuration profile’s properties, see Network Operations Tutorial – Create a Configuration.

The Bandwidth Tab
Normally, if you manage your own Edge Server, that bandwidth is at your own expense and you do not want to report that bandwidth usage back to the server. However, in closed networks or when Broadsign manages the Edge Server, the bandwidth should be reported and tallied for billing purposes.
The Core Tab
- Poll Frequency: The frequency with which the Broadsign Edge Server will poll the Server. You can configure Poll Frequency in minutes.
- Downloads: The Broadsign Edge Server can throttle the speed at which it downloads Ad Copies. You can configure the Throttle Rate in KB/s.
