iControl Edge
Advanced, Highly Automated Quality of Experience Monitoring

iControl Edge offers advanced Quality of Experience (QoE) monitoring for pay TV operators, using highly automated set-top box signal monitoring. The system can incorporate a wide array of advanced electronic supervision technologies, including Monitoring by Exception and macro-block detection. Alarms are configurable on a channel-by-channel basis with trigger recording to speed diagnosis.

iControl Edge Insights & Highlights
Highly Automated Monitoring
  • Highly automated Quality of Experience monitoring over IP, with minimal operating costs
  • Based on Monitoring by Exception, with all the channels continuously monitored to assess if they have any errors, or are outside pre-set signal limits
  • Whenever signals breach alarm thresholds, the system immediately directs the operator to the faults, using the intuitive interface, to help reduce the Mean Time to Repair
  • Advanced cycling engine allows a small number of set-top boxes to monitor hundreds of channels
Advanced Probing
  • Comprehensive monitoring capabilities include freeze, black, silence, loudness and macro-block detection
  • Electronic monitoring is performed without operator intervention, and this allows facilities to address any signal problems at a very early stage
Fast Diagnostics
  • iControl Edge simplifies a facility's fault finding process to reduce the Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), and help maintain a high Quality of Experience
  • When a video or audio error is detected, alarms are automatically raised and logged, and the signal is recorded to simplify diagnostics and reduce the MTTR
  • Video/audio streaming also contributes to more effective monitoring and faster fault resolution
Per Channel Configuration
  • Monitoring capabilities and alarming thresholds for each channel can be adjusted individually to address their specific requirements
  • Overall monitoring costs can be minimized, without compromising monitoring effectiveness where it counts
  • Monitoring can be configured quickly, and this allows rapid adjustments to be made to device IDs, locations, signals and alarm thresholds
  • Simplicity minimizes the installation time, and reduces on-going costs
Scales to Network Management System
  • iControl Edge offers quick deployment of highly effective Quality of Experience monitoring
  • System can be easily expanded to cover hundreds of channels across multiple locations
  • System can grow into a fully featured, end-to-end Network Management System
