Qatar Telecom boosts IPTV monitoring systems

Qatar Telecom (Qtel) has selected an IP video service monitoring solution from Canadian firm Mariner to help assure the quality to end-users of its managed IPTV service ‘Mozaic’.

The telco has deployed Mariner xVu in partnership with Saudi firm Alfalak Electronic Equipment & Supplies Co., a leading provider of technology-based end-to-end solutions in the Middle East.

The solution deployed is being integrated with network probes and offers Qtel additional insights into the IPTV network by extending video service monitoring reach to each subscriber.

Mozaic TV was launched in May 2007 and has now reached more than 60,000 subscribers, offering a full range of channel packages from broadcasters such as Al Jazeera, Orbit Showtime Network (OSN) and Pehla for QAR 250 (US$ 68.66) per month for a triple-play package.

Qtel also recently introduced ‘Next Generation Mozaic TV’ for its fibre-enabled customers. which provides high-definition programming and a range of advanced features, such as the ability to pause and record live TV, watch TV programmes that have screened within the last seven days, and access an extensive VOD library.
