Agama Launches SERIES 5, a New Generation Monitoring Solution for TV Operations

The Agama SERIES 5 evolves into a wider support solution for broadcasters and video operators. It has several innovative key characteristics that enable operators to work in a data-driven way across departments and workflows.

Agama Technologies AB, specialist in video service quality and customer experience, announced that it will launch the Agama SERIES 5 at IBC 2015. It is the next generation of its industry-leading solution for monitoring, assurance and analytics of service quality and customer experience.

The focus of Agama SERIES 5 is to help operators streamline their processes by enabling informed decisions in everything from daily technical service operations and priorities, all the way through to how to package and market services. Agama SERIES 5 enables a data-driven approach across the video operators' organisation and will be a vital cornerstone for operational efficiency and profitability.

It offers a platform-based architecture enabling multiple applications across the operators' organisation to share enriched monitoring data. This architecture includes an application framework that adds the ability to deploy tailored, process specific, logic and visualisation applications, on top of the solution foundation. This allows for a broader and more process supporting usage for both traditional and new categories of users, such as operations, technical development, product management, customer care and analytics teams.

It provides massive performance scalability in terms of data collection, number of users of the solution and handled data volumes. This scalable and compartmentalised architecture can support even the largest video operators with hundreds of simultaneous users, massive report generation and data mining; and, handling of many millions of consumer viewing devices in real-time.

It further enhances the ability to efficiently integrate and co-exist with neighbouring systems in the operators solution stack. This includes importing third-party monitoring data, integrating with other OSS and BSS solutions; and, exporting enriched monitoring data for use by external applications.
