Qtel selects Mariner for IPTV monitoring

Qatar Telecom (Qtel) has selected service monitoring company Mariner’s IP monitoring solution, Mariner xVu.

Qtel will use Mariner xVu for its Mozaic TV service, which delivers over 200 channels to 60,000 subscribers. The deal is the first for Mariner in the Middle East.

Mariner said xVu offers Qtel video service monitoring of each subscriber. Statistics collected by external data sources are compiled and configured as status indicators on Mariner NetworkVu.

“With this product enhancement, we can integrate with a new external data source and maximise NetworkVu’s ability to make quality assurance more cost-efficient and much less developmentally intensive,” said Curtis Howe, president and CEO of Mariner. “Probe integration is about creating greater value for the customer and bringing service-oriented monitoring to the edge network and the home.”
