Avvasi and Devoteam Announce Partnership

Video Analytics and Service Assurance Solutions 
Now Available Across Europe and the Middle East

Waterloo, ONTARIO — February 9, 2011 — Avvasi Inc., a leading innovator of video traffic management solutions for fixed and mobile service providers, today announced its partnership with Devoteam Group, a recognized leader in telecommunications consultancy, solution integration and operations. This partnership expands Devoteam’s dedicated telecoms group to include Avvasi Q-VUE, providing video analytics and service assurance solutions at a time when the explosive growth of video traffic is quickly becoming the leading focus of service providers.

“Capturing voice and data analytics to drive business intelligence is well understood. Video is another breed altogether,” said Stéphane Bret, General Manager, Group Development Telecom at Devoteam. “Unlike typical network probes that provide little or no useful business intelligence about video quality and usage trends, Avvasi’s solutions measure perceived video quality and provide unparalleled business intelligence by analyzing video traffic by device, source, content, format, duration and network conditions.”

“Devoteam has been helping service providers since the deregulation of telecommunications. We are excited to be working with such an award-winning leader in the market,” said Mate Prgin, president and CEO of Avvasi. “Together, we offer service providers unrivaled media analytics and service assurance solutions. Knowing how video traffic and trends impact the network is the basis of forming revenue-generating video services.”

As part of the agreement, Devoteam will bring Avvasi Q-VUE to the European and Middle Eastern markets. Avvasi Q-VUE product supports several solutions tailored for service providers with exploding over-the-top video traffic, including the Video Analytics solution and the Video Service Assurance solution. Avvasi Video Analytics Solution provides a rich collection of unparalleled video traffic analytics tools that enable service providers to monitor, store, collate and analyze data related to the video network traffic using a rich and interactive user interface. With Avvasi, service providers can capture detailed information about the subscriber’s quality of experience (QoE). This helps service providers manage customer relationships to reduce churn, troubleshoot network issues based on video QoE triggers and maximize revenue. With Avvasi Video Service Assurance solution, the collected QoE scores are output as UDR records and retrieved by OSS and BSS systems and ingested into higher-level mediation, billing or CRM systems.

Avvasi solutions enable service providers to strike a balance between reducing network operational costs, while preserving their customer’s experience. At the core of Avvasi solutions is a unique technology that offers a scalable, passive measurement capability that reports video-based QoE. Much like MOS scores, this perceptual measurement accurately reflects the subscriber’s perceived experience with video content. This innovative technology provides a powerful analytics and assurance solution when combined with congestion awareness and the ability to break down video traffic by device, source, content, media format, media duration and network topology.
