DEPS Telecom to Distribute VideoBRIDGE IPTV Monitoring Products in Ukraine
Bridge Technologies has announced that DEPS Telecom will distribute and support Bridge Technologies’ VideoBRIDGE product range in Ukraine. The award-winning technology provides the most advanced headend to set-top box monitoring solution available in the industry for IPTV broadcasters, telcos, and network operators. DEPS will supply and support the full range of Bridge Technologies IP Probes, including the microVB, the industry’s first viable solution for continuous monitoring at the set-top box.
“Bridge Technologies is the clear leader in this fast-growing sector,” said Yevheniy Yevtushenko, business development manager, DEPS Telecom. “As IPTV services become available more widely, the key to expanding the subscriber base is good service quality. With a true end-to-end monitoring and analysis system like VideoBRIDGE, service providers can track and fix problems quickly, often before the customer is affected.”
The award-winning VideoBRIDGE series of probes offers an innovative approach to the monitoring and analysis of converging services employing stream-based IP packets. Compatible with all major stream-based industrial standards such as MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, and DVB/ATSC - ETSI TR 101 290, the VideoBRIDGE series offers a complete end-to-end system for the continuous quality assurance of a network. With full support of the innovative MEDIAWINDOW™ (patented), the VideoBRIDGE series is at the forefront of IPTV measurement and monitoring technologies.
“Like many countries rapidly developing IPTV services, Ukraine is discovering the complexity of the delivery chain and the problems that can arise between the different technologies involved,” said Bridge Technologies Sales Director Philip Burnham. “In order to succeed, IPTV providers need to at least match the service quality viewers are used to from conventional broadcast technologies, in the same way that they match the quality of content. We are very pleased to welcome DEPS Telecom to the network of Bridge Technologies distributors.”
