IneoQuest Delivers IQWatch™ Remote Management Service for IPTV/IP Video Networks

IneoQuest Will Be Demonstrating All of Its Video Over IP Measurement Solutions at TelecomNext06' March 21-22, Booth 2041

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2006 -- IneoQuest Technologies, the IPTV/IP Video measurement leader, today announced the immediate availability of IQWatch, a subscription-based IT remote management service for delivering real-time monitoring and Web-based reporting for IP Video networks. IQWatch gives IPTV service providers a view of their network so they can more cost effectively detect and isolate network problems, optimizing their operations.

IQWatch is a remote managed service for service providers to detect and isolate IPTV transport faults using data collected from IneoQuest hardware probes installed in their networks. IneoQuest next generation IPTV/IP Video hardware systems are built on high volume, live video IQ-HVLV™ flexible ASIC technology that allows monitoring and measurement of hundreds of live, simultaneous IP Video flows in real-time.

"Over the past two years, IneoQuest has proven to be a very responsive partner to Consolidated Communications," said Don Traub, Senior Manager, Network Operations for Consolidated Communications. "IneoQuest solutions have been invaluable; helping us significantly reduce the operational costs of our IPTV network, while providing us with the extra visibility we need to identify and fix some of our most challenging problems. IQWatch looks to be a powerful complement to what's already a mainstay in our remote test and monitoring strategy."

"IneoQuest has spent years helping service providers in the telecommunications, cable and broadcast industries troubleshoot and trend live IP Video," said Marc Todd, President and CEO of IneoQuest. "IQWatch is a new remote-managed service that consolidates information from IneoQuest hardware. IQWatch watches your IPTV/IP Video network so you don't have to."

IQWatch provides the service provider with a daily report that lists the health of the IPTV system at each monitoring location -- anywhere from the video headend throughout the network right to the customer premise. IQWatch also provides a real-time, Web-based interface that gives the service provider a hands-on interface to inspect all monitored information, historical or live. Information includes IP Video quality events such as program outages (IP or Video Payload), loss patterns, per node and/or per program trending. IQWatch delivers both a management view of the entire infrastructure and detailed per node views on specific locations or time intervals.
