Bridge Technologies has added new capabilities to the microVB home network monitoring probe that allow operators to remotely gather complete analytics information on all data streams at the customer premises.
In addition to offering the new Traffic Monitoring Option (TMO), which provides detailed monitoring and analysis of every packet received at the customer premises, the microVB can now differentiate between various OTT services and streams. These new capabilities provide broadcasters and telcos with the means to diagnose any service-affecting problem over the last mile and in the subscriber's home network.
As the industry's only viable solution for deep analysis at the customer premises, the microVB gives digital media operators unprecedented access to complete information about the service quality experienced by the subscriber, providing massive savings in maintenance costs and enabling fast resolution of quality issues. With the new data-gathering option, the microVB allows operators to monitor every factor influencing the QoS received by the viewer, including interactions between triple-play services, contention for bandwidth with Internet streaming media, and OTT service degradation.
