Please fill in the following information and detail your monitoring needs. Also indicate if possible the software options you would be interested in.

Applications

  • 24/7 Monitoring and Maintenance of both Head-End and TX sites (RF/Baseband)
  • Generation of Service Availability reports for Service Level Agreements
  • Rebroadcasting receiver: RF to ASI or IP, with transcoding capacities
  • Live transmission recorder

Benefits

  • Standalone, easy to use and configure, fast deployment, SNMP compatible
  • Increase customer satisfaction by detecting & preventing Cable network degradations before your customers do
  • Reduce TX sites maintenance cost by anticipating and identifying issues
  • Plan and improve the network configuration by identifying global trends
  • Remotely accessible, compatible with low bandwidth control networks (GPRS/3G)
  • Low power consumption 20W

Combined with a Network Monitoring System or not, 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 DVB-C and DVB-C2 signals at transmitter outputs, through its RF inputs (up to 4 in 1RU), as well as at modulator input and at Head-End/distribution links, through its ASI and IP inputs.
