Over The Top
TV services, live or VOD, distributed over the Internet. Unlike IPTV services, where the telecom operator delivering the service is in charge of guaranteeing the transmission reliability, in case of OTT services the connection is established as “Best Effort”: the variability of the available network throughput on the net, caused by traffic peaks, can cause variations of the quality perceived by the user.
