Today’s video subscribers demand high quality video and are more susceptible to impaired video services than traditional voice or data services. While providers used to be able to get away with transporting video through traditional networks and network components, today’s networks must be designed specifically for the demands of transporting and streaming video. To deliver subscriber high quality video experience, Content and Service Providers need to deploy video services with the right network equipment that meet industry standards for video delivery.
As the complexity and size of video networks continue to grow in scale, speed, and functionality, equipment manufacturers must keep up with customer demand while supporting the latest and greatest in bandwidth limits and network technology. Equipment Manufacturers must be able to provide network components that meet the demands of high performance video networks. In addition, they must be able to provide performance data about their network components to customers to ensure a base level of performance.
Video Network Intelligence
To assure high availability video network performance, equipment manufacturers must test and monitor their products and solutions in simulated networks. IneoQuest Video Quality Assurance Solutions incorporate a variety of industry standards within our products to make sure that Equipment Manufacturers evaluate product performance with the same metrics that their customers use.
These metrics include the IneoQuest developed, industry standard IP video quality metric Media Delivery Index (MDI). IneoQuest also has developed the industry’s only Over-the-Top (OTT) Quality of Service (QoS) metric, VeriStream, to benchmark performance of adaptive streaming network components.
IneoQuest provides solutions that address the entire design and development lifecycle requirements of equipment manufacturers and thereby aiding, in meeting stringent performance criteria, such as SCTE 175, that recommend specific tests and performance targets for network equipment to ensure that they can deliver video streams to customers at targeted availability rates.
