Global IP Video Network Management Market
This Frost & Sullivan study titled Global IP Video Network Management Market analyzes the IP video network management solutions such as probes, analyzers, and data-mining solutions. It focuses on the broadcast, cable, IPTV, and enterprise segments. The research evaluates forecasts by revenues, units, pricing and region from 2008 to 2018 with 2011 as the base year. Factors driving and restraining the growth of the market along with trends and key challenges are identified and discussed.
Growth in Multi-Screen Viewing Stimulates Demand for Video Quality Monitoring, Chiefly from Cable Operators and Telcos
Video consumption across non-traditional devices such as tablets, smartphones, PCs, and connected PCs has risen exponentially. To meet the quality expectations of this expanded customer base, service providers, especially telcos, need their IP video network management partners to devise products and solutions that cater to the monitoring needs of the traditional segments, such as Internet protocol television (IPTV), as well as newer streams, such as over the top (OTT) video. For each of these services, there is increased emphasis on monitoring the health of the network and ensuring optimal quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE), as customers consistently demand the best video over any platform, media, or device.
“Many cable and telco operators are adopting IP-based infrastructure for deploying their content. This augments the complexity of the distribution process, making quality monitoring critical,” said the analyst of this research. “Multiple system operators (MSOs) often employ IP video network management solutions such as probes, analyzers, and data-mining units to monitor video content quality across these networks.” Broadcasters and cable service providers are sometimes not fully aware of the benefits of analyzers, data-mining solutions, and probes. They tend to rely on the supplier community for guidance. Often, the IP video network management solutions are deployed at a customer network and then replicated at other networks, depending on the results.
