Turner Brazil has selected Witbe and its Brazilian partner SDC Engenharia to test and control the performance, availability and integrity of its OTT streams. Turner Brazil, part of the Time Warner group, is now able to monitor quality of experience (QoE) for the live-streaming of sports events.

Turner Brazil has been using Witbe's OTT Robots for the past five months to test the five CDNs used for HLS streaming of major sports events, along with a dedicated portal and central system.

The Turner-custom portal provides relevant KPIs collected by the Witbe Robots, such as global availability and total download time per channel, profile bitrate and total time to download, rebuffering risk per profile and per chunk and download status with specific error codes.

Flavio Menna, director of technology and operations at Turner Brazil, said: "Our Operations Teams are really pleased with Witbe's Technology. We can now monitor the availability and performance of the networks routes used to deliver our OTT streams. Moreover, Witbe was able to provide custom dashboards with all the QoE KPIs in one place. It was important for us to have all the data from the robots transformed into meaningful and high-level information, as well as being alerted in real time of any degradation. We look forward to continue working with Witbe's teams."
