The VB120 distribution monitoring blade offers a cost-effective and powerful monitoring solution, covering the most commonly available signal formats. In particular, the VB120 is capable of monitoring IP unicasts and multicasts, OTT/ABR streams as well as a whole range of RF formats.
In addition to the onboard 1 Gbps RJ-45 and SFP ports and the ASI in/out ports, the VB120 can be paired with a full set of interface blades to cover RF signal formats such as DVB-T/T2, DVB-S/S2, DVB-C/C2, QAM-B, 8VSB, and ISDB-T. The VB120 probe hardware is custom designed and built to telco-grade standards for maximum reliability and minimum maintenance. Each VB120 blade consumes less than 12W of power. Up to 3 blades are installed in the 1RU VB200 or VB300 chassis.
The ability to continuously measure all your media services makes the VB120 invaluable for confidence monitoring, thus facilitating a more rapid network expansion. In addition, the VB120 can perform deep analysis of the broadcast signal, reducing the need to travel to remote locations when changes in the system are made or to find the reason behind alarms.
