  • Default options:
  • Software options:
  • Hardware options:


  • 24/7 Monitoring and Maintenance of the SFN networks: TX transmission and SFN Overlapping Reception Areas
  • Generation of Service Availability reports for Service Level Agreements
  • Plan and improve the network configuration by identifying global trends


  • 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 network degradations before your customers do
  • Remotely accessible, compatible with low bandwidth control networks (GPRS/3G/4G)
  • Low power consumption 25W

Combined with a Network Monitoring System or not, the EdgeProbe Advanced provides a powerful broadcast network alert & diagnosis tool allowing Digital Radio network operators to monitor global trends and anticipate potential failures.
EdgeProbe Advanced is able to monitor DAB/DAB+ signals at transmitter outputs as well as in the reception areas, through its RF inputs (up to 4 in 1RU).

DAB/DAB+ monitoring through the RF inputs (up to 4 in 1RU)

Signal Level, MER, SNR, FIC BER, MSC BER (Pre/Post, per sub-channel)

Compatible Band III VHF (168 to 240 MHz)

Channel RF Spectrum and Constellation display

RF Shoulder Upper/Lower measurement

Mode I, II support; automatic detection

Local analog audio output: via front panel controls

SFN monitoring at TX or Reception area

On TX site:

  • RF signal time synchronization; detects up to +/- 1.2 seconds time drift

In Reception area (SFN overlapping area):

  • Channel Impulse Response (Echoes), with advanced Echo Pattern mode: better echo in error identification even if the main (stongest) echo suffers changes; no time shift if the main echo disappears
  • TII detection (Main/Sub ID)

DAB Transport monitoring

Ensemble Service Plan: check ensemble structure

Service information (SI)

32 GB of internal storage (up to 4 in 1RU)

Alarm logs & RF parameter trends up to 4 months

CSV format files. Available for download via web GUI or FTP connection (automation scripts)

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
