Agama Technologies, the specialist in video service quality and customer experience, will be presenting its cloud-ready video service assurance solution at IBC2017. The solution is fully flexible and supports any mix of dedicated hardware, virtualization and cloud implementation (with support for private and public cloud). “With a long-standing focus on software-based solutions, our monitoring, assurance and analytics solutions are ideally suited to handle any deployment, now and in the future,” the company says.
Anders Svensson, CTO at Agama Technologies., adds: “We see a lot of operators virtualizing parts of their solutions. This spans everything from individual functions, such as transcoding, to the entire back-end of the video solution. Parts of it are driven by outsourcing to service partners, and parts by efficiency of implementation. In either case, we see the flexibility provided by virtualization as a key success factor.”
As video service solutions are increasingly being implemented in the cloud, monitoring tools must be cloud-ready too, Agama points out. In addition, the increasing use of analytics in the video service domain requires significant amounts of processing power and storage and can benefit from the cost-effectiveness of a cloud-based implementation. At the same time, an increased focus on security and privacy is motivating operators to retain full control over critical parts of their solutions by running them in-house or in another secure environment, pointing to a hybrid operating model.
