Video Service Assurance (VSA) Solution

The industry’s only software-based solution that monitors operators’ video services end-to-end from the video source to the end device with active and passive testing.

Présentation

The video service assurance (VSA) platform is a highly cost-effective, scalable solution that gives visibility at every strategic and critical network location. It supports IPTV, VoD, cable TV, and adaptive bit rate (multiscreen) services. It combines video assurance monitoring software with commercially available, off-the-shelf hardware to create easily deployable points of presence in headends, networks, and end-user devices.

Key VSA components enable VIAVI applications to address the most demanding assurance and analytics applications requirements. Its extremely efficient data collection, state-of-the-art flow, and transaction analytics engine, combined with in-memory processing for all analysis and correlation functions, add unparalleled scalability. Extremely flexible service modeling and policy management capabilities let VSA solutions easily scale as needed when adding new network device types, types of services, or service level agreements (SLAs).
