Powerful IPTV Analyzer on the FTB-1

The EXpert IPTV application enables FTB-1 platform users to quickly and easily perform pass/fail verification of IPTV installations. It also reduces the amount of service calls by detecting and clearly identifying through simple pass/fail indications any degrading conditions during service turn-up, ensuring subscribers’ quality of experience. EXpert IPTV can emulate a set-top box and display a real-time video preview, allowing the technician to determine video and audio quality before any other equipment is installed.

Set-Top-Box Emulation

The EXpert IPTV Test Tools allow technicians to emulate an actual set-top box. When operating in that mode, the application can join and leave live IPTV channels. The user can connect and view one or several standard-definition or high-definition videos simultaneously, or request a specific one.

Passive or Promiscuous Mode

The Passive mode allows the Expert IPTV Test Tools application to seamlessly discover, view and provide metrics for any IPTV stream available on a specific link. No application configuration is required, and the user can run the test without being familiar with the application.

Multiple Video Streams Analysis

The EXpert IPTV application can analyze up to 10 video streams simultaneously. It also allows joining (so the user can view the stream) and leaving the discovered and selected streams simultaneously. This time-saving feature can be used for STB emulation as well as in Passive mode.


The video-on-demand (VoD) feature of the EXpert IPTV Test Tools allows the user to request a specific video channel and connect to it. Valuable video metrics and analysis are then provided as well as a live view of the stream.

Telecom service providers are focusing more than ever on bundling multiple services such as voice, video and data.
