  • 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

    test-tree has the best products for analyzing and monitoring our network!

  2. Alin Terchila

    Your equipment is really good. I test it and it’s work fine. My proposal to you is to take in consideration the possibility that in future releases to add RF analysis with graphical view of the spectrum and constellation. In that moment the product is complete and unique.
