Optimize QoE and QoS with true visibility into OTT encrypted video traffic
Simplify workflow and drill down for faster root cause analysis of OTT video related issues across locations, devices and networks, including content delivery networks (CDN).
Over-the-top (OTT) video use from providers like YouTube, Netflix, Facebook, and more is on the rise. It’s already impacting the overall service quality received by mobile and fixed line subscribers and will increasingly monopolize network resources as usage climbs.
In order to resolve video-related performance issues, understand device and network video performance and usage, and to perform intelligent network capacity planning, CSPs require visibility into and across locations, devices and networks, including content delivery networks (CDN). But achieving that visibility has been a challenge due to encrypted content and lack of access to third-party CDNs.
With Empirix OTT Encrypted Video Assurance, you can:
- Optimize video performance
- Maximize infrastructure investments
- Improve customer satisfaction
Monitor key OTT video providers, CDNs, iOS and Android devices
Detect issues such as video freezing/stalling for any video session in the network with a near real-time dashboard that provides alarming/reporting with drilldown capabilities
Gain visibility into ciphered content, applications, and protocols for proactive QoS monitoring and network capacity planning
Correlate both control and user-plane information for troubleshooting and root cause analysis of video sessions
How it works
Empirix’s OTT encrypted video assurance and reporting solution simplifies workflow and drill down for faster root cause analysis of OTT video related issues across subscribers, locations, devices and networks. By identifying and fixing problem areas, mobile providers can improve the quality of experience for their subscribers.
The new OTT video package includes pre-defined, out-of-the-box reports that correlate video-related QoS parameters to bring transparency to encrypted video traffic and deliver immediate value without custom development.
Unmatched network visibility
Our microservices, 5G architecture provides a level of visibility that the competition cannot. Empirix monitors individual network slices and can isolate control and user plane traffic (CUPS).
Operational reports for encrypted OTT video assurance help service providers remain relevant and competitive in this constrained market.
