TestTree Readies T&M for IBC 2018

T&M solutions and a new IPTV/OTT product be displayed and demonstrated on the TestTree IBC stand.

TestTree will showcase its array of its lab and field devices and monitoring products, as well as a new offerings for IPTV and OTT monitoring at IBC2018.

On display will be the company’s EdgeProbe solution. More than 5,000 probes have been deployed worldwide, in more than 90 countries for over 500 customers. The cost-effective solution accurately logs the quality being delivered by a network. Additionally, the system is scalable for any DTV and digital radio (DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T/Tb, DAB/DAB+) DTV cable transmission (DVB-C/C2) and DTV distribution over satellite (DVB-S/S2, T2-MI, OneBeam, MPTS) technology.

When combined with TestTree’s GlobalViewer, or any network management system, the EdgeProbe can provide a powerful broadcast network alert and diagnosis tool.

EdgeProbe GlobalViewer is a virtualized server application. A real-time dashboard provides a centralized view over a network’s monitoring status, with direct access to the deployed probes. The solution delivers live supervision of a user’s network QoS.

TestTree’s RF-Catcher + Application Suite will also be on display at IBC. RF-Catcher is a compact RF capture and playback device and spectrum analyzer. Covering a frequency range from 70 MHz up to 6 GHz, RF-Catcher can record and play real-time RF bandwidth of up to 55 MHz. Able to analyze and record live RF spectrum on the field (manually or automatically triggered) and combined with positioning information / signal level tracking / low-power consumption, RF-Catcher has many advantages for doing drive tests. Any RF signals recorded in the field can be played back later to troubleshoot networks.

Also at IBC2018, the company will launch its new offering for the IPTV and OTT markets. StreamProbe has been developed for content providers, network operators and service providers to provide QoE monitoring. Highly flexible, the solution can be deployed throughout the delivery chain; from contribution and encoding, head end processing, to final delivery and viewer location.
