Sentry is Awarded Best Test, Measurement and Monitoring Solution
LOS ANGELES – MobilityWire® – May 18, 2009
Mixed Signals, the leading provider of digital content monitoring solutions, announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry’s leading publication on information technologies and solutions, has named Mixed Signals’ Sentry® as the winner of the 2009 Product Innovation Award for the best test, measurement and monitoring solution. This annually venerated award recognizes and honors vendors from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes while setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.
“Innovation is clearly an important factor to greater success and has the most impact on staying competitive,” says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Network Products Guide. “We chose Mixed Signals’ Sentry as the best test, measurement and monitoring solution, because it enables video service providers to quickly identify and diagnose the most complex visual and audio problems that can ruin consumers’ TV experience. Such errors are increasingly common as service providers’ networks become more complex in order to deliver more HDTV, video-on-demand (VOD) and other advanced video services.”
Sentry is a comprehensive content monitoring solution for cable, telecom, IPTV and other video service providers. Sentry enables the early detection, diagnosis and repair of video and audio errors (i.e., video freeze, macro-blocking, loss of audio, etc.) whenever or wherever they occur in the network, so service providers can deliver services with excellent quality, thus ensuring an optimal quality of experience (QoE) for subscribers. Sentry accomplishes this through its unique combination of unprecedented visibility into network anomalies at the IP and MPEG layers, scalability to monitor every program in the network and its real-time, 24/7 operation. Sentry is proven in deployments with service providers worldwide, including eight of the top 10 U.S. cable operators.
“This Network Products Guide’s award acknowledges our continued success in keeping our advanced monitoring solution ahead of the technology curve,” said Eric Conley, CEO of Mixed Signals. “We have tremendous expertise in digital video and are always adding new capabilities to Sentry to ensure it remains the best video monitoring product in the world.”
