Video Quality of Experience Score
A Sandvine Technology Showcase
Third-party video applications that run over-the-top (OTT) of a communications service provider’s (CSP) transport layer are the dominant drivers of bandwidth on the Internet.
The popularity of such video is responsible for two fundamental shifts in consumer behavior: higher peak bandwidth levels and heightened subscriber sensitivity to video quality.
Since 2010, Sandvine has provided CSPs with insight into video QoE that meets all of the requirements to measure quality from the perspective of the end viewer:
- Our platform is completely session aware and resolves routing asymmetry, so video QoE is based on complete visibility of the video content
- The QoE metric takes into account both display quality and transport quality, the two necessary dimensions of video QoE
- Different factors are used when calculating the QoE for progressive video or adaptive video, to account for the different behavior of these streaming mechanisms
