IP Statistics are a part of Mixed Signals’ transport monitoring solution. Monitoring the IP layer of the video network ensures there are no IP issues impacting the delivery of services and programming. In addition, monitoring the IP network assists with root cause analysis and problem isolation. The three primary uses are:
1) Monitor the performance of the UDP/IP transport network over time
2) IP Network Analysis
Perform root cause analysis on the IP network by using built-in analysis tools and historical reporting to correlate IP anomalies (packet delay and network jitter) with occurrences of other problems such as discontinuities, audio silence, video freeze alerts, etc.
3) Historical Reports
IP Statistics provides a historical graphical report on the entire IP video network that includes the types of issues and information on what the subscriber impact was for any network issue.
