Sunrise Telecom has expanded its portfolio of network test and measurement solutions with the launch of the packetWORX IPTV Suite.
The packetWORX Suite includes the server-based packetWORX IPTV Monitoring system and packetWORX IPTV Analyzer application for premise troubleshooting. The suite enables system operators to install, maintain and troubleshoot IPTV networks in an optimised fashion, increasing the efficiency of field technicians and reducing operating expenses.
"As the increase in demand for IP-based video among businesses and consumers grows, it is incumbent upon the system operators to provide network infrastructures that maximize the quality and reliability of video traffic," explained Abish Ghimire, product manager at Sunrise Telecom. "packetWORX enables operators to deploy and maintain network infrastructures to meet the stringent quality and reliability demands of IPTV services."
The client-server based packetWORX IPTV monitoring provides 24x7 monitoring of IPTV networks to detect and correct problems before customer Quality of Experience is impacted. Unlike other IP-based monitoring systems, packetWORX utilizes deep packet inspection allowing service providers to pinpoint the root cause of problems affecting the delivery of IPTV services. Providers can set up automatic monitoring for up to 500 channels with pass/fail results.
packetWORX IPTV Analyzer allows technicians to test all channels with pass/fail results and get go/no-go results within seconds. A comprehensive video and transport stream statistics provides in-depth detail to determine the root cause of problems.
