An overview of video services on mobile networks and a detailed examination of essential best practice for testing the quality of video services

Video is already the dominant service that consumes the most data in today’s mobile networks and its significance will continue to increase in the future. Therefore the performance of video services is fundamental to customer satisfaction and Quality of Experience. A key challenge is how the perceived quality of a video streamed via a mobile network can be measured accurately and consistently.

In this webinar R&S Mobile Network Testing, pioneer of video services testing and developer of ITU-T approved methods to measure perceived video quality, will discuss the essentials that you need to know about video services and how to test them. The principle factors that influence the quality of video streaming applications and in particular the impact of the mobile network performance will be examined along with their effect on overall QoE.

To retain subscribers and stay ahead of the competition, it is critical for mobile network operators to verify that the most popular video applications are running with high quality over their networks.
