Rohde & Schwarz Inc. has revealed the R&S DVMS-B40 IP option for the R&S DVMS monitoring family that allows network operators to achieve maximum operational reliability when feeding transport streams over IP networks. According to the company, the easy-to-use module provides complete monitoring and detailed analysis of IP signals.

In digital TV networks, IP is used more and more to feed transmitter sites. This option monitors all relevant quality parameters in the IP transmission. If one of the transmitted transport streams is faulty, the new option can extract this stream and transmit it to the central monitoring station over IP. The personnel at the central monitoring station can analyzeand quickly respond tothe faulty transport stream in detail. Graphically presented results also ease troubleshooting.

There are two models in the R&S DVMS family. The R&S DVMS4 (one HU) can monitor the transmitted RF signals from up to four transmitters at a transmitter site. RF modules are available for DVB-T, DVB-S, DVB-S2 and DVB-T2. The R&S DVMS1 is ideal for transmitter sites where only one RF or transport stream signal needs to be monitored. This one HU, 1/2 19in unit can accommodate one of the above modules. The R&S DVMS family is extremely flexible and can easily be scaled to meet users' specific requirements, while offering excellent price/performance ratio, claimed the company.

The module, now available from Rohde & Schwarz, allows connection to up to 1Gb electrical Ethernet networks. Optical IPs can also be connected to the R&S DVMS using small form-factor pluggable modules. Using the simple network management protocol, the modules can also be easily integrated into central management systems.
