Akamai to Use Eurofins Digital Testing

Mar 01, 2018

Eurofins Digital Testing, a global leader in end-to-end quality assurance (QA) and testing services, announced that it will provide Akamai Technologies Inc. with extensive research into OTT quality-of-experience (QoE), giving both Eurofins and Akamai customers an objective dataset to help inform OTT workflow decisions.

Specifically, Eurofins and Akamai have developed a way of understanding OTT QoE by running extensive frame-by-frame capturing and automated testing of multiple encoding profiles on a variety of playback devices such as smart TVs and mobile phones, whilst simulating common conditions seen in the Internet. The companies say, this comprehensive and objective dataset will allow Akamai and Eurofins to uniquely advise their customers on playback issues that affect OTT QoE and measures to help improve the viewer experience.
