CUPERTINO, Calif. — Interra Systems, a leading global provider of software products and solutions to the digital media industry, today announced that Partner Communications, a leading telecommunications operator in Israel, is using Interra Systems’ ORION™-OTT monitoring solution to check live and VOD content integrity and related network performance of adaptive bitrate (ABR) content for its multiscreen OTT service, Partner TV. ORION-OTT provides Partner with efficient and cost-effective monitoring of online video delivery for quality and compliance purposes, resulting in error-free and superior quality content for its customers on every screen. Nisko Technologies, Interra Systems’ distribution channel partner in Israel, ensured a flawless deployment.

“Checking the quality of OTT services is complex and requirements are constantly changing. Operators need visibility into the entire workflow, from content preparation to content delivery, to guarantee optimum quality of service and experience to their viewers,” said Kanishka Tongya, sales director — APAC & MEA at Interra Systems. “We designed ORION-OTT for customers like Partner to effectively address a broad range of OTT delivery requirements such as QoS, QoE, alerts and reports for troubleshooting, and centralized management — all in a powerful, software-based platform for high performance and scalability.”

“Being a software-based solution, ORION-OTT provides increased flexibility and better ease of expansion compared to other monitoring systems in the market. Aside from its comprehensive feature set, we chose the ORION-OTT system for its scalability, intuitive user interface and Interra Systems’ excellent pre-sales support,” said Raz Bartov, VP, head of technologies & IT at Partner Communications. “Through the platform’s real-time alarms for quick, on-the-go decision making, web-based user interface, and rich analytics, we can offer superior video quality and a better user experience to our customers on a wide range of devices, including TVs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets.”

ORION-OTT monitors ABR content via user-defined automated and manual schedules, checking for inconsistencies pertaining to ABR package compliance, manifest/playlist syntax, download errors, and content quality. The platform provides extensive DRM integration capabilities.
