ACTIVE is a tool to simply and quickly calculate IPTV related availability measures, with high
precision and high efficiency.
It determines the availability of a high number of different
IPTV-Services for different traffic szenarios in a very flexible
Availability measures that are primarily interesting for IPTV-service
provider and those that are primarily interesting for individual users
are shown at a single glance,
for two different models at the same time, including those for
availabilty during channel switching and during handover between
adjacent IPTV cells.
ACTIVE was first developed by Nico R. Wilzek in his diploma thesis
"Realisierung und Einsatz eines Verfügbarkeitsprognose-
Werkzeugs für IPTV-Dienste in vehikularen Netzen" ("Implementation and
use of a availability prediction tool for IPTV services in vehicular
networks", supervision: Prof. Dr. Bernd E. Wolfinger
A thorough discussion of ACTIVE exists in the diploma thesis "Realisierung und Einsatz eines Verfügbarkeitsprognose-
Werkzeugs für IPTV-Dienste in vehikularen Netzen" (version: 2015-12-28).
The program was written in Java with a Python core.
The program needs Java, but not Python to be installed.
