IPTV Quality of Service – A Standards Perspective


Date: Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Time: 1:00 am – 2:00 pm EST
Cost: Free


Today, Quality of Service and Quality of Experience are considered necessary quality layers, and include targeted, measureable metrics. Tomorrow's core and distribution networks will be different. While traditional QoS focuses primarily on transport layer quality, while tomorrow’s media stream quality will be measured at multiplexers, which reach into different program streams. In the future, content quality may be measured at encoders and decoders – thus enabling the closest estimate of user-perceived picture and audio quality.

During this Webinar, industry experts will examine how IPTV Service Quality standards are improving service quality management and enabling lower costs and increased end-user satisfaction.
