Cheetah Technologies has entered into a relationship with the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) that is designed to expedite the availability of Cheetah products and solutions to NCTC members.

Under the terms of the Master Purchase Agreement, Cheetah will work with NCTC member companies to create and deploy cost-effective solutions that incorporate Cheetah’s CMD, Cheetah XD and V-Factor products. Cheetah Technologies solutions are designed to manage the HFC network from source to subscriber by proactively monitoring the physical network elements that provide revenue-generating IP services, such as high-speed data and VoIP.

“Solutions that can proactively monitor networks and enable correction of problems before they impact consumers are vital to ensuring high satisfaction from cable subscribers,” said Richard Frey, NCTC VP/General Manager, Hardware, in a statement.

At NCTC’s upcoming Winter Educational Conference (Feb. 28-March 1, 2011 in Clearwater, FL), Cheetah plans to demonstrate the latest versions of its V-Factor product line, including the ability of its Stream Probe Advanced platform to enhance monitoring of MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 streams, and its V-Factor SMSTB that measures video quality between the STB and the TV.
