Digital Fountain, Neptuny launch server software to improve IPTV QoS

October 4, 2007

Digital Fountain and Neptuny have jointly launched ToughStream Server, a new server-based software solution to improve quality of service (QoS) for IPTV providers.

ToughStream Server is a standalone, enterprise-class software solution that can be installed on a standard server within an operator’s IPTV headend, protecting the entire network against packet loss, the leading cause of IPTV customer complaints.

ToughStream Server was jointly developed under a new partnership between Digital Fountain and Neptuny. Based on Digital Fountain’s ToughStream solution, ToughStream Server includes additional technology from Neptuny that enables fast, easy deployment of ToughStream on an IPTV provider’s standard server equipment.

ToughStream Server is compatible with any standard Linux server and can be deployed in a fully redundant configuration with low switching times (less than 2s).
