Mariner Brings IPTV Service Assurance to Cisco's TelcoTV Workshop

xVu Suite Demonstration Highlights Role of Service Monitoring Tools in Creating Viable and Sustainable Revenue Streams From IPTV Services

SAINT JOHN, NB--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - Mariner, a leading provider of innovative IP video solutions and technologies, today announced its participation in Cisco's IPTV workshop at the TelcoTV 2009 Conference and Expo, November 10-12 in Orlando, Florida.

Mariner will demonstrate its xVu™ suite of IPTV service monitoring tools, which brings complete end-to-end monitoring of the access and home network to Cisco's IPTV solution, leveraging the innovative Visual Quality of Experience (VQE) platform. The collaboration follows the success of Mariner's full integration of xVu with Cisco's VQE platform, which was first demonstrated at the IBC show in Amsterdam last month.

Cisco's TelcoTV Workshop is taking place at the Orange County Convention Center from 9am to 12pm on Tuesday, November 10th and will consist, in part, of a live demonstration of the xVu suite of real-time monitoring toolsets and feature telcos describing their experiences with Cisco's IPTV solution.

Key Facts:

  • xVu is the only IPTV service assurance solution that provides complete end-to-end network monitoring. Its total coverage allows service providers to identify and fix network issues before they negatively affect the end user, thus reducing costly truck rolls and customer churn.

  • Cisco's IPTV solution is based on open systems architecture and industry standards, along with the VQE technology that gives service providers a comprehensive suite of services that enables them to optimize bandwidth use, reduce error rates through error correction, provide rapid channel change and improve the overall user experience.

  • The incorporation of Mariner's xVu tools with Cisco's VQE technology is the result of a year long collaboration, in which a thoroughly integrated version of xVu was developed. The result is the ability for a service provider to gain measured insight and troubleshooting control into network and home related issues as well as speed response to service-quality issues.

  • Mariner will be exhibiting at booth 232 & meeting room 234 at TelcoTV, where they will be offering further demos of their xVu solution.
