The development of Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) services is quickly becoming a central strategy for major telecom operators, with Asia and Europe leading the industry in terms of network deployments and customer adoption. Unlike ordinary Internet video services that stream or download highly compressed video to a PC screen, IPTV systems deliver high-quality standard definition and high-definition (HD) video content in real-time to more demanding displays, such as large-screen TVs. Such requires a stable and reliable high bandwidth network infrastructure.

IPTV system deployments usually drive major upgrades to the network infrastructure to meet these requirements. They also demand new test and monitoring technologies to test and maintain that infrastructure. Several telecom operators have delayed or scaled down their IPTV systems until they are able to pinpoint the cause of system problems that degrade the quality of the IPTV service delivered to their customers. Improved IPTV test and measurement technologies are then necessary to accelerate the commercial deployment and growth of IPTV services.
