Applications

  • 24/7 Monitoring and Maintenance of both Head-End and TX sites (SFN/MFN, 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 DTV 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-T and DVB-T2 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.

Monitor DVB-T & DVB-T2 signals at TX output through the RF inputs (up to 4 in 1RU)

Signal Level, MER, SNR, BER

Modulation parameters, L1 signaling in DVB-T2, TPS in DVB-T

Channel Impulse Response

DVB-T, DVB-T2 (1.1.1, 1.2.1, 1.3.1) & T2 Lite support

Quick identification of which TX site is causing SFN issues!

Baseband monitoring and forwarding over ASI/IP interfaces

Monitor TS & T2-MI baseband distribution links at Head-End output and TX site input through the ASI and IP inputs (up to 4 in 1RU)

Forward the analyzed TS over ASI or IP output

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

Alarm logs up to 6 months

RF parameter trends up to 6 months

TS recording (manual trigger)

Internal GNSS receiver (Hardware option):

Generates an internal 1PPS reference signal for SFN synchronization measurements (SFN Drift, Frequency Offset)

GPS & GLONASS support

Dual Power Supply (Hardware option):

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