Orcon, a fast-growing ISP in New Zealand, has extended its relationship with Alcatel-Lucent, supplier of its Content Delivery Network (CDN), by deploying the latter’s AppGlide Online Video Analytics solution to examine the quality of streamed video offered by its CDN customers.
Alcatel-Lucent’s AppGlide is being provided to Orcon as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, providing it with low start-up costs, low operating costs and a quick market launch.
AppGlide examines the relationship between a broad range of video data sources, combining data from video player plug-ins, quality-of-experience (QoE) agents and content-delivery network (CDN) assets to deliver a holistic view of the end-user online video experience.
Alcatel-Lucent’s solution will provide Orcon and its CDN customers with visibility on aggregated video usage, creating in-depth insight on how consumers watch online video and how much they watch.
Orcon selected the Velocix Content Delivery Network in September 2010 to improve the delivery and experience of Internet-based video, installing it in key locations across New Zealand.
