Surveyor™ Family

You must understand the performance of the networks that are delivering your video. All of them. Now. Because when your viewers call with questions, you need answers.

The Surveyor family offers solutions that will meet your needs, whether you are dealing with linear multicast IPTV or OTT Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) video delivery, or both at the same time. Surveyor solutions can be targeted at the core, edge, or access region of both managed and unmanaged (i.e. the Internet) networks, and are well-suited for helping to establish and track Content Delivery Network (CDN) Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Solutions are available in both appliance formats and licensable/virtualizable software formats.

Surveyor™ TS

You deliver video in MPEG2 Transport Streams - thousands of programs, and tens of Gbps of video traffic. You need to understand your network’s performance in terms of Quality of Service Metrics defined by TR 101-290 (QoS), and quickly detect, identify, and resolve problems that could impact a significant number of viewers.

Surveyor TS (Transport Stream) is your solution. It supports unicast, multicast, and broadcast streams, and video encoded in MPEG2, MPEG4, AVC and HEVC. It offers the IneoQuest-developed, industry-recognized Media Delivery Index (MDI) metric (RFC 4445) to identify packet jitter and delay tolerance boundaries. The user interface is familiar to anyone who has used our Singulus and Geminus probes, reducing transition time. Surveyor TS can be used standalone, or as part of a multi-element quality assurance platform - a FoQus Platform - through the use of iQ Engine solutions such as iVMS and cVOC.

Surveyor™ TSc (New)

If you need similar functionality as the Surveyor TS but would like it in a more compact portable profile, the TSc is your ideal solution. Perfect for medium capacity monitoring, the Surveyor TSc offers scalable MPEG-2 Transport Stream measurement of up to 2 Gbps of video traffic—and up to 500 programs/128K PIDs, sized ideally for edge/access applications.

Surveyor™ABR Active

You need to assure that all of your adaptive bitrate (ABR) content - each and every bit rate rendition of every program - is available 24/7/365, and is able to be delivered with the required quality to provide a pristine viewer experience. You want to know that your content origin is operating within its performance envelope, and want to be sure that your delivery networks, including third-party CDNs, are performing to your expectations. You may even want the ability to deploy this solution across cloud-based infrastructure, and spin test nodes up and down as your needs demand.

Surveyor ABR Active is the right solution for you. It uses active monitoring to request the video content from various parts of the delivery network, allowing for rapid fault detection and troubleshooting. IneoQuest’s proprietary VeriStream metric provides a color-coded at a glance QoS status for each and every video chunk (a 2-10 second segment of video) of each stream, giving you the intelligence needed to manage your 3rd party and unmanaged networks. Available in both appliance and licensable/virtualizable software formats, Surveyor ABR Active can be used standalone, or as part of a multi-element quality assurance platform -a FoQus Platform - through the use of iQ Engine solutions such as iVMS and cVOC.

Surveyor™ABR Compact Active

Surveyor ABR Compact (ABRc) Active is a video quality monitoring solution that uses “synthetic client” technology to verify that your video content - live or VoD - is available and plays as expected, in every bitrate and format. It effectively acts as your most critical viewer, measuring video flows and keeping you informed about your service’s performance. Simply point Surveyor ABRc at the assets you want to monitor, and it continuously “plays” or cycles through the video to measure key performance indicators (KPIs). Surveyor ABRc Active is an integral component to IneoQuest’s ABR monitoring solution. Its small footprint and monitoring capacity is ideal for monitoring the access network and video assets that need attention by identifying issues before your customers are impacted.

IQ Dialogue™ASM

Your video content is streamed using adaptive bitrate technologies. You want to be sure that your content, both VoD and linear/live, is always available and meeting the QoS requirements you and your viewers demand. You want a solution that can passively monitor all video traffic over a multi-Gbps link, and actively test key assets when the case demands.

iQDialogue ASM is your solution. It provides publishing/origin and trans-network(s) verification with both passive and active monitoring techniques. iQDialogue ASM checks that your valuable content is available at caching sites, and quickly notifies you of packaging errors, stale manifests, missing media chunks as well as any HTTP errors that could impact the viewer experience. IneoQuest’s proprietary VeriStream metric provides a color-coded at a glance QoS status for each and every video chunk (a 2-10 second segment of video) of each stream, giving you the intelligence needed to manage your 3rd party and unmanaged networks. Available in both appliance and licensable/virtualizable software formats, iQDialogue ASM can be used standalone, or as part of a multi-element quality assurance platform - a FoQus Platform -through the use of iQ Engine solutions such as iVMS and cVOC.

Singulus™

You operate an IPTV network. Your operations, support, and engineering teams need an easy-to-use, portable, low-cost test tool for analyzing and generating/troubleshooting digital video in MPEG2 Transport Streams on 1 to 10 Gb network interfaces.

The Singulus family offers your solution. The Singulus family connects to the IPTV video network through a 1 or 10Gigabit Ethernet port and provides either monitoring and analysis or network traffic generation (Stimulus). Based on reconfigurable technology, the Singulus family allows the user to configure the hardware via a browser interface into alternate modes of operation for advanced development and troubleshooting or as a simple remote video monitoring platform. Available in appliance format, Singulus products can be used standalone, or as part of a multi-element quality assurance platform - a FoQus Platform - through the use of iQ Engine solutions such as iVMS and cVOC.

Geminus™

You operate an IPTV network. You need an easy-to-use, rack-mountable test tool for analyzing and generating/troubleshooting digital video in MPEG2 Transport Streams on 1 to 10 Gb network interfaces.

The Geminus family offers your solution. The Geminus family connects to the IPTV video network through two 1 or 10Gigabit Ethernet ports and provides either monitoring and analysis or up to 20 Gbps of network traffic generation (Stimulus). Based on reconfigurable technology, the Geminus family allows the user to configure the hardware via a browser interface into alternate modes of operation for advanced development and troubleshooting or as a simple remote video monitoring platform. Geminus offers TR 101-290 testing and IQ-developed MDI measurement of QoS, with the ability to record and play MPEG2, MPEG4 Part 2, AVC, H.263, H.261, DC II, VC1, and WM9 via a Remote Video Link (RVL™). Available in appliance format, Geminus products can be used standalone, or as part of a multi-element quality assurance platform - a FoQus Platform - through the use of iQ Engine solutions such as iVMS and cVOC.
