LULEÅ, Sweden, October 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Netrounds today announced the availability of Netrounds Free, a feature-limited yet fully functional version of its cloud-based IPTV testing and monitoring service. As a forever-free offering, Netrounds Free is targeted to IPTV providers as a much more user-friendly and powerful alternative than traditional open source command line tools, often used during initial IPTV introductions.
Netrounds Free includes support for IPTV testing and is automatically provisioned anywhere in the world by downloading and deploying up to two measurements probes. Results from the probes, such as MPEG loss, jitter and invalid stream, are retrieved from the cloud-based servers through an easy-to-use web interface.
"Almost everything moves to the cloud thanks to all benefits of such solutions. The free version of Netrounds now being released strengthens our position as the number 1 cloud-based tool for network testing and measurements. Netrounds Free is definitely first in its kind and changes the game for IPTV testing and monitoring", says Marcus Jonsson, Chief Marketing Officer at Netrounds.
Netrounds is the world-leading cloud solution for IP network and service testing to reduce customer churn thanks to quick troubleshooting. Netrounds is used by more than 100 customers globally, such as Telenor in Sweden and KabelNoord in the Netherlands. Netrounds is an all-in-one tool for testing triple play services and combines a wide range of testing capabilities with a superior ease of use.
