Mirifice partners with SmartLabs

Mirifice Ltd integrate MiriMON service monitoring with SmartTUBE

April, 24 2009 – Mirifice Ltd and Smartlabs LLC announce a partnership to bring the MiriMON advanced customer QoE monitoring solution to the SmartTUBE service delivery platform (SDP).

John Kinson, Managing Director for MiriMON at Mirifice, says "SmartLabs are a leading-edge SDP provider, offering sophisticated multicast, VOD and timeshifted services. We are delighted to be working with them to provide a market-leading QoE monitoring capability to their customers.”

MiriMON provides critical information for service assurance, customer care and service optimization by monitoring real consumer devices, in real-time. The integration of SmartTUBE and MiriMON is successfully deployed in a major IPTV network.

John added "It has been rewarding to see the benefit to the network operator from the unique real-time information generated by MiriMON and SmartTUBE. We are delighted to work with the SmartLabs team, who share our commitment to excellence and innovation."

Mikhail Grachev, CEO at SmartLabs LLC says "For our service delivery platform customers, MiriMON provides valuable detailed view of the TV service that each and every consumer receives. Combining this information with the SmartTUBE platform provides a true end-to-end view of service delivery for linear and on-demand programming."

SmartLabs’ key platform – SmartTUBE SDP – a converged service delivery platform for interactive television over fixed (IPTV, DVB, hybrid) and wireless (DVB-H, 3G, Wi-Fi, WiMax, etc.) networks with TV broadcasting, PPV, PVR/nPVR, VoD/nVoD, IM, and other services.

SmartTUBE UI client applications are based on a popular animation and graphical engine and supports a wide range of client devices (STBs, mobile phones, media centers, etc.) and is integrated into SmartLabs client application framework – a powerful development environment which has all typical TV user interface objects (windows, menus, lists, etc.), animation templates (motions, movements, object behaviors, etc.) as well as typical client-server interoperability mechanisms (i.e., EPG and VoD content data exchange, available services, etc.). Once created, the UI might be easily transferred to different end-point devices. It allows to move UIs to any new device within one technology (say, IPTV), and it also allows to build hybrid
solutions (IPTV, DVB, 3G, Wi-Fi, etc.) assuming that subscribers will use the same interface experience regardless ways they have to access services.
