Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

The ideal tool for accurate & cost-effective monitoring of the quality of Digital TV & Radio Boradcast Networks.

Combine any two RF standards in one 1RU device! Up to 4 parallel monitoring modules (2 per RF standard).

Category:

Applications

  • 24/7 Monitoring and Maintenance of both Head-End and TX sites (SFN, MFN, retransmission)
  • 24/7 Monitoring and Maintenance of both Uplink and Downlink sites (RF & Baseband)
  • Generation of Service Availability reports for Service Level Agreements
  • Gateway from RF to ASI or IP
  • Live transmission log, trend (RF measures) and TS recorder

Benefits

  • Monitor both Satellite distribution and TX RF transmission (terrestrial, cable, DAB) in a single 1RU device
  • Standalone, easy to use and configure, fast deployment, SNMP compatible
  • Increase customer satisfaction by detecting & preventing network degradations before your customers do
  • Reduce site 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 25W

The ideal tool for accurate & cost-effective monitoring probe for:

  • DTV terrestrial transmission (DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T/Tb)
  • DTV cable transmission (DVB-C/C2)
  • DTV distribution over satellite (DVB-S/S2, T2-MI, OneBeam, MPTS)
  • DTH uplink and reception (DVB-S/S2, MPTS)
  • Digital Radio transmission (DAB/DAB+/T-DMB)

Combine any two RF standards in one single 1RU device.

Combined with a Network Monitoring System or not, the EdgeProbe Advanced provides a powerful broadcast network alert & diagnosis tool allowing Digital TV & Radio network operators to monitor global trends and anticipate potential failures.

    GREAT EQUIPMENT

    We are testing the EDGE PROBE ADVANCED in Brazil for signal monitoring ISDB-TB.

    The product is excellent. In addition to tracking and enable alarms in all parameters of the ISDB-TB, still has the powerful tool of analysis of SFN, very important in the monitramento of broadcasting stations and GAP Fillers.

    If you need a complete solution for ISDB-TB, the EDGE PROBE ADVANCED is the one!
