DVB-S2 RF measurement

DVB-S2 Constellation

In following some applications and use cases are described in which SAMbuddy-RF can be used. In closer inter-action with other SW components of decontis product portfolio high-end solutions for analysis, monitoring and coverage can be established.

Field Monitoring of DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C broadcasts
  • SAMbuddy-RF receives the DVB broadcast via RF
  • the RF parameters are monitored continousely, 24/7 via SNMP
  • optional, i.e. additional components necessary:
    • streaming TS to SAMcorder
    • monitoring TS on all technical layers  (MPEG, EPG, Subtitles …)
    • SAMcorder streams the de-multiplexed A/V content to SAMitor
    • Audio/Video content gets monitored visually and via SNMP
DVB-T / DVB-T2 Coverage Measurement and Drive Test
  • SAMbuddy-RF receives the DVB-T/-T2 broadcast via RF
  • the RF measurements and modulation information are sent to SAMcover
  • SAMcover receives GPS signal and correlates it with  the RF measurements
  • RF measurements are visualized in a map
  • read more …
DVB-T / DVB-T2 Coverage Measurement
TS Distribution and Monitoring
  • SAMbuddy-RF receives the TS via DVB.-S/-S2
  • the RF reception gets monitored
  • the received TS gets distributed to remote locations via IP
