The ideal tool for accurate & cost-effective monitoring of the quality actually delivered to all points of ATSC 3.0/1.0 networks.

Category:

Applications

  • 24/7 Monitoring and Maintenance of both Head-End and TX sites: RF transmission (SFN/MFN), STLTP distribution (over IP, Satellite)
  • Generation of Service Availability reports for Service Level Agreements
  • Plan and improve the network configuration by identifying global trends
  • Live transmission recorder

Benefits

  • Standalone, easy to use and configure, fast deployment, SNMP compatible
  • Reduce TX sites maintenance cost by anticipating and identifying issues
  • Increase customer satisfaction by detecting & preventing DTV network degradations before your customers do
  • Remotely accessible, compatible with low bandwidth control networks (GPRS/3G/4G)
  • Low power consumption 25W

Combined with a NMS or TestTree’s GlobalViewer, the EdgeProbe Advanced provides a powerful broadcast network alert & diagnosis tool allowing DTV network operators to monitor global trends and anticipate potential failures.
EdgeProbe Advanced is able to monitor ATSC 3.0/1.0 signals at Transmitter output through its RF inputs (up to 4 in 1RU), as well as at Modulator input and Head-End/distribution links through IP (STLTP) inputs.

Monitor ATSC 3.0/1.0 signals at TX output through the RF inputs (up to 4 in 1RU)

Signal Level, SNR, BER LDPC iteration

SFN time synchronization: SFN Drift

Channel Impulse Response (Echoes): TX ID decoding ans echo association

Compatible ATSC 1.0

ATSC 1.0 TS monitoring

ETSI TR 101 290 priority 1, 2, 3

Multiplex Service structure: service/PID list, bitrate, scrambling/ PCR presence

Demodulated TS recording (*.ts) for ATSC 1.0

Internal GNSS receiver (HW option)

Generates an internal 1PPS reference signal for SFN synchronization measurements – which is independent from the modulator’s reference signal

GPS & GLONASS support

Dual Power Supply (HW option)

One additional Power Supply can be installed on the equipment in order to ensure the power redundancy
