Alcatel-Lucent announced ".. AppGlide Video Analytics, a new managed service to help broadband service providers measure the quality of experience (QoE) for both free and paid online video from an end-user viewer’s perspective .. In addition to identifying and effectively addressing content delivery-quality issues, AppGlide Video Analytics delivers metrics that give service providers a better understanding of viewing trends and overall network performance. The cloud-based solution combines data from video player plug-ins, QoE agents, content-delivery network devices (CDNs) and routers to deliver a truly holistic view of quality of experience for subscribers. In addition, it provides insights into viewing trends, content usage, CDN and network performance. It shows the volume and quality of video being delivered; gives visibility into viewer behaviors (what is being watched, how long, why viewers stopped watching etc.); and helps service providers monitor, and isolate CDN performance".
