THE LEADING SOLUTION IN STREAMING VIDEO SERVICE ASSURANCE
Understand and identify usage and experience in real time with a service assurance application that accurately reflects how mobile subscribers are consuming and perceive streaming video content.
Measure and Improve your subscribers' video experience
Video consumption has changed dramatically in recent years. Subscribers can consume almost limitless content anywhere, on whatever device they choose. Binge-watching is an accepted trend, further encouraged by content discovery and auto-play features. Still, what we are seeing today is just the tip of the iceberg. Industry reports predict that over the next 5 years, IP traffic will triple again, and video will be over 80% of that traffic. By 2021, every second, one million minutes of video content will cross the network.
With increasing consumption comes increased demand on the network and increasing challenges to the viewing experience. Gaps between subscriber expectations and service delivery are frustrating to subscribers. The service provider is on the hook to ensure a quality viewing experience. Netflix and Google are adding to this pressure, by rating and showing your subscribers how your streaming quality compares to competing ISPs.
Yet, the service provider has a unique role to play in the delivery eco-system. Only the service provider has a 360-view of all the content being consumed on their network at any given time in any given location. This puts you in a position to help improve the viewing experience. To do this, you need tools to measure your subscribers' consumption and their viewing experiences. Q-VUE smart data provides the tools for service providers to measure and analyze this video traffic and the viewing experience, from the point of view of the service, the network, the device, and the subscriber.
