Rohde & Schwarz Offers Transmitter Site Monitoring

The R&S TS4570 from Rohde & Schwarz is a new network management application that provides an overview of broadcast operations. It monitors all transmitters and monitoring equipment at the transmitter sites via an SNMP interface and displays them on a computer. Faults can be detected immediately and corrected without losing any time.

R&S says the R&S TS4570-K14 option eliminates the need to configure every transmitter site separately because it has configuration templates that can be generated specifically for each type of transmitter site. Using these templates, data is entered only once and then transferred to all sites. The new option also features a geographical map on which it displays the current network status.

The R&S TS4570-K13 option also includes a Web-based reporting tool that network operators can use to provide their broadcaster customers with a solution for measuring and checking the network’s quality of service. Service level agreements (i.e., measurable descriptions of the services to be rendered) can be reliably verified with this tool. All performance data is clearly displayed on a PC and archived for an extended period of time. Users can configure the display parameters according to their requirements.

The R&S TS4570-K13 and R&S TS4570-K14 options are now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
