Norway’s Canal Digital selects Agama for quality assurance

Norwegian cable operator Canal Digital Kabel TV has chosen to deploy Agama Technologies’(Stand H37) DTV Monitoring Solution for end-to-end quality assurance of its nationwide cable TV service.

Agama said the solution would provide Canal Digital with full insight into the distributed DVB-C service quality across its deployment, with Agama Analyzers throughout the hybrid IP/cable network and with the Agama Embedded Monitoring Solution integrated with its deployed ADB hybrid set-top boxes. By processing, correlating and presenting all relevant QoE and QoS information, together with service usage and system health, aggregated from all monitoring locations, the central Agama Enterprise Server EX gives end-to-end overviews of the delivered video service quality and shows the extent of any problem and its position. Included is also Agama’s Performance Management solution, which provides data mining and reporting on refined quality data for service benchmarking, trend analysis and usage statistics.

“The Agama DTV Monitoring Solution will support Canal Digital in real-time problem discovery and impact analysis, in proactive and cost-effective customer support processes, as well as in systematic improvements of the overall service quality – all of which will have a clear impact on operations bottom-line,” said Mikael Dahlgren, CEO of Agama Technologies.
