Anite to Integrate OPTICOM's PEVQ-S Streaming Video Analysis in Nemo Tools

OULU, Finland, February 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Enables operators to more effectively analyse their services, optimise their networks, and ultimately improve the end-user experience

Anite, a global leader in wireless network testing technology, and OPTICOM, the leading provider of signal-based perceptual measurement technology for voice, audio and video, today announced a partnership whereby Anite will implement OPTICOM's new streaming video quality testing algorithm, PEVQ-S, in its Nemo wireless network testing tools. As a result, network operators and service providers will be able to more accurately evaluate their streaming video service levels from a subscriber's viewpoint.

With a growing demand for OTT (over-the-top content) streaming video services (such as IPTV and YouTube) there is also an increasing need to accurately evaluate subscriber Quality-of-Experience (QoE) and Quality-of-Service (QoS). In addition, the wide variety of mobile devices offering different performance levels and screen sizes introduces new challenges for service providers. PEVQ-S is an advanced framework algorithm developed by OPTICOM for full-reference video quality analysis in adaptive streaming environments. It combines FR high accuracy video quality measurements with real-time measurements, even on mobile devices. PEVQ-S will enhance the streaming video quality testing capabilities of Nemo tools by offering standardised exact qualification of video quality and the ability to benchmark video streaming QoE levels, identify perceivable artifacts of network congestion, and to indicate the available headroom for optimisation. PEVQ-S algorithm will be implemented in the Nemo product line during the second half of 2014.

"With PEVQ-S we are the first to present a comprehensive, standards-based video quality measurement for OTT services that is able to accurately benchmark subjective subscriber QoE in a long-term context, rather than just testing snapshots of a few seconds," says Michael Keyhl, Founder and CEO of OPTICOM. "PEVQ-S is currently the only tool in the market which not only detects poorly perceived video quality, but at the same time gives a useful indication of the available headroom for QoE optimisation from a subscriber's subjective point of view. We are very enthusiastic about Anite's strong support for PEVQ-S right away from the start - it's great to see one of the key market leaders for mobile network testing premiere our technology for the benefit of the global market."

"The world is currently experiencing an explosion in mobile data traffic - consumers expect to download more content, more quickly, and with consistent network service at all times. The implementation of PEVQ-S algorithm in Anite's Nemo tools further strengthens our QoE and QoS testing capabilities, enabling our customers to more effectively analyse their services, optimise their networks and ultimately improve end-user experience," says Jussi Lemiläinen, Vice President, Product Management and Business Development at Anite's Network Testing business. He continues, "OPTICOM has been setting the standards for signal-based perceptual measurement technology and we are very pleased to continue to collaborate with them."

Anite will demonstrate Nemo tools at stand 6I50 in Hall 6 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 24-27 February, 2014. For more information, please contact us at [email protected].

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
