The over-the-top (OTT) option recently launched by Norway-based Bridge Technologies provides monitoring throughout the delivery chain to the subscriber’s premises; it will be available sometime during the third quarter.

To support a home network of connected devices, Bridge Technologies’ new microAnalytics system provides monitoring of OTT and "TV Everywhere" services to multiple devices including smartphones and tablets. The microAnalytics system allows operators to remotely access real-time data from set-top boxes, connected TVs, iPads, iPhones and other mobile devices.

To enable monitoring of OTT service integrity and quality on the viewer’s mobile devices, the microAnalytics system includes the miniaturized, self-installing microVB hardware probe, the central server system, and the microC — a library of software clients to support accurate remote monitoring of each device.

The system’s data-gathering capabilities allow operators to monitor every factor influencing Quality of Service and the viewer experience, including interactions between triple-play services, contention for bandwidth with Internet streaming media and OTT service degradation.

OTT capability can be added to the VB120, VB220 and VB330 units for monitoring in the field, at the high-traffic core network and at fringe networks.  Because of the unit’s built-in self-configuration capabilities, the OTT option needs no specialist knowledge to operate; operations center staff can start monitoring streams simply by entering the URL.

Notes Chairman Simen Frostad, "Our strategy is to provide a tool that can easily be integrated into any operator’s approach, but with the key constant that true end-to-end monitoring capabilities are essential to effective and economical maintenance of service quality. That’s why our solution extends from the point of ingest right to all of the viewer’s devices; only with the ability to track and analyze OTT streams throughout their entire journey can operators be confident of delivering viewer satisfaction."
