IPTV: Ensuring Quality of Service

Wednesday, February 17, 2010


The cost-effective delivery of triple-play services (voice, video, and data) is made possible in large part by next-generation, standards-based, and distributed network architectures that use packet transport mechanisms. These new networks must deliver specific Class of Service (CoS) support for all three service types—and, each comes with its own application-specific quality of service (QoS) needs. IP-based delivery of video signals also places unique demands on these networks.

Ensuring proper service delivery on these new networks requires making measurements of the accumulated effects of the IPTV network on critical, application-specific QoS parameters at the customer premises during service installation.

This one-hour webinar will discuss these video-specific QoS parameters and will examine a suggested methodology for both measurement and use. Registrants will learn firsthand from an industry expert how to help ensure successful IPTV deployments.
