Delivering Quality Content is Hard

Producing great content is only half the battle; you need to ensure proper delivery so it can be consumed the way it was intended. With all the variables, complexity and dependencies in content supply chains, isolating bottlenecks and compatibility issues is critical in QoE.

Content QoE Challenges:

  • Client-side Variability - performance across different devices, networks and locations
  • User Perceived Content Quality - quality of content experienced by the end-user
  • Performance and Scalability - visibility to bottlenecks and impact of issues impacting content delivery across the backend infrastructure and network
