Today operations teams face two major challenges: they can only access their data at their NOC; and as quality expectations from viewers increase and more devices are used, the amount of data with which they interact grows in its complexity. The result - too much data to interpret and troubleshoot effectively. Even when operations teams have external or internal hardware and software solutions to monitor their network, they still lack a cost-effective way to unify and visualize the extensive amount of data. Touchstream’s VirtualNOC resolves this. Using powerful integrations, the solution takes a distinct approach to monitoring by unifying the data from all parts of the live OTT video workflow. It also enables operations to visualize this data in an easy and understandable way, providing an End-to-End overview so the team can guarantee a flawless delivery. By doing so, VirtualNOC plays an integral role as the single hub for all data.
