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)

    :

    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.
