Measuring video quality over the unmanaged Internet, CDNs, and Access networks holds real challenges; lack of physical network access, scalability requirements, knowing what/how to measure, and limited capital resources are all barriers in assuring that your streaming viewers are seeing your content as you intended.
Maybe you are starting an OTT video service, and you only need to monitor a few streams initially – but as you grow, you need your solution to grow with you. Or maybe you have a large streaming event coming up soon, and want to be sure that your delivery infrastructure is ready. Or you operate a video network, but your viewers want to be able to see your content when they are not directly connected to it. Or maybe you simply want to know how your CDNs are performing in real time.
You CAN get these answers quickly, without installing test equipment all over the Internet, or deploying new apps that can measure what is happening at the viewer’s device. In fact, if something bad is happening at the viewer device, it is too late.
