Coverage to the Subscriber
The Cricket® family extends the coverage of video quality management and service assurance from video source to subscriber. In the industry today, there is no tool available that has such a comprehensive feature set as the Cricket. It offers the most cost effective way to audit, monitor, analyze and troubleshoot across different video transport technologies. The Cricket family provides a means to connect to a wide variety of interfaces; ASI, IP, QAM, 8-VSB, and more.
Multi-dimensional video quality management™ is a necessity in any digital video distribution network to help reduce operational expenses and improve subscriber experience through rapidly isolating and troubleshooting video quality issues. For video distribution networks, multi-dimensional video quality management can be achieved by using a combination of IneoQuest Cricket hardware probes, along with the iVMS® Video Management System.
Power in a Small Footprint
Because the Cricket is small and easy to deploy, it can be mailed overnight to the subscriber premise to automatically begin measuring and logging live video statistics remotely that are sent back to the iVMS Video Management System. In many cases, service providers can start measuring issues faster than it takes to issue a work order and "roll a truck." Not only is the Cricket useful for last mile video quality management, the Cricket can also be used to troubleshoot issues at the video source.
