IP&TV Preview: Bridge Technologies Debuts OTT Monitoring Solution
The IP&TV World Forum 2012 will take place from March 20 to 22 in London, and in preparation Bridge Technologies is previewing a system for monitoring over-the-top (OTT) and TV everywhere services.
Bridge's offering is called the microAnalytics System, and it's designed to monitor multiple devices, including smartphones and tablets. Bridge says this is the first time operators will be able to view data from set-top boxes, connected TVs, iOS devices, and other mobile devices remotely and in real-time.
"The microAnalytics System is very much a first in the industry, and we've chosen IP&TV World Forum to unveil it. Until this launch, there hasn't been a way for multiservice and OTT providers to monitor the quality of service to all their subscribers, whether they are using a fixed device like a connected TV, or an iPhone or tablet on the move," says Simen Frostad, chairman of Bridge Technologies.
"True end-to-end monitoring in the mobile and OTT markets means the ability to analyze real data -- not just simulations -- from subscribers' devices, to understand exactly what is happening with the service. The microAnalytics System is the first solution that can truly guarantee an operator complete control over the quality of service to the subscriber, on any device," added Frostad.
Bridge Technologies is based in Oslo, Norway. It specializes in analysis and monitoring solutions for digital broadcast and telecommunications.
Offering free and paid versions, Bridge releases an app that offers real-time stream performance analysis.
