NV Global Library

The NV Global Library contains extensive real-world network-related data that helps you to define the parameters of a virtual location. You supply a number of input parameters to the library, and the library returns parameters that define the virtual location.

Note: To access the full set of geographic locations in the NV Global Library, you must be connected to the internet and be licensed to access the NV Global Library. If either of these two conditions is not met, then you will have access to a limited set of geographic locations.

After you extract the parameters for a virtual location profile, you can configure various runtime settings for the virtual location. For details, see Specify virtual location runtime settings.
