Agilent Technologies Announces World's First IPTV Analysis, Monitoring Solution Based on Chinese Audio/Video Coding Standard

Mar 24, 2008

Agilent's Triple Play Analyzer Accelerates Development, Deployment and Enables Monitoring of AVS-Based IPTV Network, Enabling Faster Time to Market

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the industry's first Audio/Video Coding Standard (AVS)-IPTV analysis and monitoring solution. Designed for the Agilent Triple Play Analyzer platform, this software empowers service providers and network equipment manufacturers to accelerate the development and deployment of AVS-based IPTV networks and ensure the acceptable Quality of Service.

AVS is one of the advanced audio/video coding standards for delivery of Internet protocol television (IPTV) services developed by the AVS Workgroup of China. Service providers and manufacturers are faced with numerous network-related challenges including network element interoperability, proactive measurement of video media transport, service delivery optimization, ensuring Quality of Experience (such as video quality and channel zapping), and balancing IP network performance for real-time services.

The Agilent J6900A Triple Play Analyzer is the most complete test solution for network equipment manufacturers and communication service providers who develop, install, maintain, troubleshoot and monitor IP-based voice, video and data systems, such as IPTV and VoIP networks and services. The Triple Play Analyzer is the ideal tool to detect and resolve signaling, transport and voice/video/data Quality of Service and Quality of Experience problems -- before customers are affected. It provides the essential measurements and key performance indicators that enable engineers and technicians to quickly and proactively identify customer-impacting issues before they become problems, and empowers faster and higher-quality AVS-IPTV network deployment.

The Agilent Triple Play Analyzer provides comprehensive AVS-IPTV measurements including:

  • passive AVS Video MOS (Mean Opinion Score) analysis for hundreds of IPTV/VoD streams in real-time;

  • real-time playback of AVS-based IPTV multicast or Video/TV on-demand streams in real-time with audio;

  • comprehensive AVS-IPTV MPEG Transport Stream analysis based on the ETSI TR101-290 standard;

  • IPTV transmission layer analysis based on the RFC4445 - Media Delivery Index standard; and

  • analysis of IPTV channel-zapping latency and VoD command response times.

"In China, the AVS standard and its applications in IPTV have made rapid progress in recent years," said Henry Lu, business manager of Agilent's IP Network Convergence China operation. However, there are still a lot of challenges in deploying AVS-based IPTV networks commercially. Using our Triple Play Analyzer, network operators can proactively manage and measure the metrics that affect the end-user quality of experience across the AVS-based IPTV networks, as well as quickly identify the root cause of Quality of Service/Quality of Experience degradations. This allows network operators to deploy high-quality AVS-based IPTV services correctly -- the first time -- and increase market share and revenues."

The Agilent J6900A Triple Play Analyzer with AVS test capability is available for order now.
