Bridge Technologies launches Full Service Monitoring
Bridge Technologies has launched FSM (Full Service Monitoring), an extension of the company's VB20/220 IP probes that allows operators to monitor the functionality of the middleware controlling viewers' IPTV experiences.
With Bridge Technologies' FSM-enabled probes, IPTV operators can monitor the transport of media and the functioning of all the elements contributing to the user's interaction with the service, including: subscription validation, program listing displays, conditional access and VOD controls.
FSM provides operators with the means to ensure full confidence monitoring of every aspect of their services.
FSM is integrated into the functionality of the IP20 and IP220 probes, without requiring any additional hardware, and is now available for the probes running software version 3.1 or later.
