MANSFIELD, Mass. -- IneoQuest Technologies, Inc., the leading global supplier of end-to-end quality, service and revenue assurance solutions for video providers of all types and sizes, today announced IQDialogue Desktop Edition, an advanced PC-based software application that analyzes, monitors and troubleshoots Switched Digital Video (SDV) networks for cable operators. IQDialogue identifies the various SDV protocols in a comprehensive and familiar web-based format, providing information on the SDV service delivery platform and enabling advanced monitoring and analysis for quick and accurate fault identification and resolution.

SDV is a technology that enables increased efficiency of network bandwidth for cable service providers. The technology decouples fixed assignments of bandwidth to content, and allows service providers to transmit to subscribers, only the content which is being requested. The advantages of SDV technology to cable service providers include reclaiming of valuable bandwidth and spectrum while providing an efficient mechanism for migration to new advanced services.

“The increased bandwidth efficiency provided by SDV enables the network operator to provide additional Video On Demand (VOD) and HDTV channels, increased channel capacity and improved viewer experience – with a significant increase in network and video delivery performance”, said Gino Dion, VP of Strategic Solutions for IneoQuest Technologies. “IQDialogue is the only application available to cable operators for independently testing the SDV network and its various components prior to deployment, as well as the implementation of a true, end-to-end quality and service assurance solution to provide the capability to monitor, analyze, fault isolate and troubleshoot a switched digital video network. IQDialogue also allows service operators to emulate thousands of SDV clients on their system, performing various tasks such as channel changes, bootup, etc. With several North-American MSOs and equipment manufacturers already using and deploying IQDialogue SDV, we look forward to enhancing the platform as our customer’s SDV needs and deployments grow.”
