Diagnostix Operational Reports (DOR)
The new OTT video package includes the reporting tool, Diagnostix Operational Reports (DOR), which provides ubiquitous visibility into encrypted video traffic via a series of out-of-the-box, pre-defined reports that correlate video-related QoS parameters to deliver immediate value without custom development.
With video performance heavily influencing service quality, CSPs must be able to identify and resolve video-related performance issues. However, encrypted content and lack of visibility into third-party content delivery networks (CDN) is making it hard for CSPs to not only identify and correct issues, but to perform intelligent network capacity planning and understand device and network video performance and usage.
“Customers want best-of-breed performance with high demand video services but are cost-sensitive, so it’s critical that service providers have the tools they need to optimize video performance, maximize infrastructure investment and improve customer satisfaction,” shared Franco Messori, Chief Strategy Officer at Empirix. “Because we monitor individual network slices and we are able to isolate control and user plane traffic (CUPS), our microservices, 5G architecture can provide a level of visibility that the competition can’t.”
The Diagnostix Operational Reports (DOR) for encrypted OTT video assurance helps service providers remain relevant and competitive in this constrained market.
Diagnostix and Diagnostix Operational Reports (DOR) are globally available today. Contact Empirix to learn more.

The explosion of smartphones (~1.5 billion sold in 2015), the proliferation of applications accessible through 4G mobile networks, and the advent of over-the-top (OTT) services have all put pressure on traditional service providers to differentiate themselves, keep the customer base loyal and, most importantly, recover revenues currently flowing to OTT providers and other MNO competitors.
If the transition to virtualized environments in the enterprise is any indicator, it appears that the transition to NFV in CSPs is only a question of when, not if. Why is this so? Well, for the same reason the enterprises did it: to be more agile.
The Service Assurance segment is evolving. Service providers now require Service Assurance solutions that provide greater levels of visibility – not only into the network, but also into the services and vendor devices deployed in the environment.
