Mixed Signals monitoring solutions perform deep inspection of every packet in real-time, simultaneously across hundreds of channels and programs. This provides visibility into video and audio quality metrics such as loss of video and audio, audio silence, video freeze, tiling, macro blocking, slow channel changing and application errors. Our deep packet analysis technology goes beyond traditional monitoring probes to obtain detailed reports on service degradation resulting from poor video and audio quality, MPEG data and table errors, packet arrival interval or delay factor, or from embedded data.
Detailed monitoring of single and multi-program transport streams includes historical uptime statistics, bandwidth trending, audio/video quality of experience metrics, and embedded data tracking and identification. The Sentry product line provides detailed table information along with comprehensive PID and program information.
With advanced alerting, instant notification is possible when problems occur using real-time, configurable alerts. Receive alerts based on various subscriber impacting events including video presence, frozen video, macroblocking, tiling, loss of audio and audio volume level issues; as well as various criteria relating to PIDs, tables, and discontinuities.
