Teleste says that the concept, called Monitoring as a Service (MaaS), is designed to help operators to keep broadcast services up and running, monitor the quality of video streams and offer an excellent TV experience for their customers.
Teleste says that outsourcing monitoring to it makes life easier for broadcasters because Teleste can take care of all necessary hardware, software and people resources as well as ensure qualitative and fast information transactions on system performance and availability.
MaaS is aimed at operators with a Teleste Luminato headend in operation, and it also allows monitoring of third-party devices through SNMP. The service continuously monitors systems and immediately sends information on system health and status.
Operators can choose between basic headend monitoring or advanced operative services for their entire system. All selected services are covered with a monthly fee.
Monitoring as a Service runs on the Teleste Luminato application module that harnesses the Luminato headend with a Linux computer.
“Today, over-the-top television is significantly shaping the TV experience. The new generation of consumers enjoys services such as video-on-demand, live streaming, social TV and audience interaction. And there are still a large number of TV viewers who are attracted to linear TV and the rich service bundles offered by many operators. While consumer demand is diversifying, we at Teleste want to provide our operator customers a safe and future-proof solution for carrying out engaging, top-quality broadcast TV services for years to come,” said Petri Viitala, director of network product global support at Teleste.
Teleste will be exhibiting at IBC on stand 5.B68
