IneoQuest Signs Open Tools Partner Agreement With Agilent Technologies

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 6, 2005 -- IneoQuest Technologies, the Video over IP Quality Specialists™, today announced an Open Tools Partner agreement with Agilent Technologies Inc. The companies will jointly market Agilent OSS (Operations Support System) solutions and IneoQuest Video over IP real-time, 24x7 monitoring tool solutions that enable communications service providers to monitor, analyze and manage Video over IP quality. Using Agilent and IneoQuest solutions, service providers can effectively monitor and correct Video on Demand degradation, ensuring high-quality services to subscribers.

IneoQuest monitoring tools provide critical network measurements and statistics across hundreds of streams simultaneously on gigabit networks including the MDI (Media Delivery Index). MDI measures live video streams for network impairments that can affect customer Quality of Experience (QoE). The Agilent OSS provides comprehensive access and control of the IneoQuest tools at remote network test points such as Network Operation Centers (NOCs). Service providers can have confidence in this solution from the industry's leading OSS provider, Agilent, and IneoQuest, the Video over IP Quality Specialists.

"IneoQuest's agreement with Agilent reflects our commitment to offer service providers advanced Video over IP monitoring tool solutions to enable triple-play strategies," said Marc Todd, President and CEO of IneoQuest. "IneoQuest tools provide the simultaneous monitoring of MDI and other performance measurements for the hundreds of streams on today's gigabit networks and the thousands of streams on 10 gigabit networks from the headend to the home, which is critical in assuring customer satisfaction."

"To compete against new cable service providers, telecom providers are rapidly deploying video services over IP," said Giorgio Dina, vice president and general manager of Agilent's OSS Division. "With our new IneoQuest relationship, we can help telecom providers effectively manage voice, data and video performance and QoE from a single control point -- offering a unique advantage in this highly competitive market."
