VQmon/HD is capable of analyzing encrypted/ scrambled IPTV streams and now supports the analysis of IPTV streams with FEC and Retransmission. VQmon/HD is in early commercial deployments in IPTV set top boxes and is already extensively used for service assurance by leading IPTV service providers.
VQmon products are compact, efficient, reliable and highly portable software agents that are integrated into a wide range of software and hardware platforms, producing accurate real-time, performance and QoE metrics for IP voice and video traffic. VQmon is unique in its ability to model the impact of time varying impairments on user perceived quality, which has been shown to materially improve the accuracy of QoE metrics.
