At the very core of our technology
Intelligent triangulation
• Mariner xVu TCETM – Patented Topology
Correlation Engine
– Maps edge data into topology representation.
– First comprehensive topology-based mapping for IPTV edge devices.
– The leading and most advanced engine of its kind.
• Event Processing looks easy but… timing is everything
– Rules based sampling and analytics - correlation and aggregation
• Highly configurable algorithms and thresholding
– Synthesis required in real time.
9
At the very core of our technology
Intelligent triangulation
• Data Scalability
– Massive amount of data to be processed
• 180 MR parameters per STB report, other inputs (crash logs, D-Server logs,
etc.)
• Resulting dashboards must be simple and near real
time
– Problem detection must be visible through a single screen.
– Translation of counters must be intuitive to take troubleshooting
action.

Mariner xVu and D-Server Data
• Why Mariner xVu for D-Server monitoring?
– Greater reporting precision with D-Server 2.X.
– Near real time tracking of packet loss through Mariner
xVu, Mariner NetworkVuTM and Mariner SupportVuTM
applications.
– Massive amounts of unreadable data translated into
time based meaningful events.
– Mariner xVu D-Server file compression grinds data
down to manageable events
• File size reduced by 80%
• Mariner xVu compression brings data rates down
by 80%.
16
Mariner xVu and D-Server Data
• Mediaroom D-Server 2.X provides:
– Increased visibility for R-UDP enabled services
– Channel change (leaves/joins)
– D-Server packet repair events
What’s new with Mariner xVu?
18
Hot List
•
Reduce latency in Mediaroom diagnostic reports.
•
Reduce churn through proactive and enhanced data sampling.
•
Automate increased diagnostic polling for high profile customers.
•
Use Hot Lists to help improve visibility of new installs, VIPs, etc.
•
Generate reports that correlate diagnostic data with other process data
to identify trends.
19
Network Polling
•
Targeted polling at any network level.
•
Reduce risk and cost on maintenance
windows.
•
Reduce the flying blind feeling after a network
change/upgrade.
•
Targeted network polling:
•
Perform On Demand diagnostics for
devices that exist off a specific network
element.
•
Enables network ops the ability to quickly
validate network change through targeted
diagnostics.
•
Trigger a current status update for a
particular network element after a service
outage or a maintenance window.
20
96-Hour History
• 96 hours of historical data rolled up
for the deployment.
• Extends availability of features like
Mariner NetworkVu Playback and
KPI Analysis
•
Increases visibility of network
impacting problems that occurred
over the last 4 days.
•
Visibility of network issues are
available after a long weekend.

that reported in error at a particular
point in time.
• Provides a quick, automated networklevel summary of key process
indicators that triggered an error.
• Removes the manual inspection
required to determine the common
triggers of events impacting multiple
devices.
• Exports data as a .csv file format for
additional analysis with tools like
excel/pivot tables.
22
