The C21 SME (Broadcast Monitoring System) is a platform used for the monitoring and analysis of signals of DVB -T, DVB-S/S2 and also Live streaming video services. It can perform the monitoring of the above mentioned networks in attended and unattended mode during its operation in real-time.
The C21 SME is responsible for monitoring and service assurance, both of which are required at every step of the signal generation. This makes it a unique tool when it comes to ensuring the monitoring of service levels in terms of availability and quality throughout the whole video broadcasting value chain. The C21 SME system performs detection and failure analysis tasks in its acquisition phase, in the production of transport protocols for its delivery to distribution networks, and up to the delivery point, near the end user.
The monitoring architecture consists of two elements:
- Remote monitoring probes, which can be installed at the ends of the transmission network. They perform the acquisition, recording and control of the received signals, as well as the generation of alarms as needed.
- A centralized control and management console. It performs the management of all monitoring architecture and the logic generated by the alarms which have been triggered.
In its 2015 annual evaluation of strategic suppliers, the EITB Group appreciates the service provided by Cires21 Live Streaming Solutions as excellent, and encourages the company to continue working in the same line of excellence in order to improve its results in 2016 .
