IneoQuest Technologies has released three of its video quality assurance products in scalable virtualized formats, for use in networks built around network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) principles.
The new virtualized offerings include scalable versions of IneoQuest's solutions for video service assurance and analytics, including:
- Expedus DVA IP for verifying the quality of adaptive bitrate content preparation
- iQDialogue ASM for monitoring QoS across the delivery infrastructure
- iVMS ASM for providing a portal to understand and manage the video assets across the assurance platform
"NFV and SDN enabled deployments require real-time information in order to be rapidly scalable and successful. In the case of video delivery, real-time quality metrics will be critical in order to catch a consumer before they get frustrated and drop the stream," said Calvin Harrison, CEO of IneoQuest. "Providing the necessary real-time analytics is non-trivial and is an area that IQ has excelled at for years. Our virtualized solutions are aimed squarely at meeting this analytics need and are ideally suited for the real time needs of NFV deployments."
The virtualized solutions are expected to be available through standard sales channels in April.
