MANSFIELD, Mass. -- IneoQuest Technologies, Inc., the global provider of advanced video quality and service assurance solutions, today announced that it is the first to provide end-to-end product solutions that incorporate program availability, a key performance indicator for video distribution as described in the recently published Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) 168-6 2010 “Recommended Practice for Monitoring Multimedia Distribution Quality” standard. Using program availability as a standard measurement, video service providers can continuously monitor and report on delivery network performance and device reliability for quality of service (QoS) improvements, operational cost control and service level agreement (SLA) management.

The SCTE’s newly approved industry practice for monitoring recommend ‘availability’ as the common language for measuring the quality of video delivery. Their performance target for high availability requires that a subscriber not experience any more than six (HD) to 24 (SD) seconds of errors in a program for a 24-hour period. Providers can either leverage this industry target or set their own availability objective, but by using this consistent performance benchmark, all parties involved in video service can improve business communication, such as for SLA’s and overall video quality delivery by measuring the expected performance of their networks against this standardized metric.
