IQASI82 Dual ASI Transport Stream Monitor and Switch

The IQASI82 monitors two ASI streams simultaneously for errors, automatically switching from main and backup inputs depending on error criteria. Alarm management flexibility is provided by user-defined criticality of alarms — from transport stream loss to PID monitoring and basic ETSI TR 101290 alarms.

External GPI I/O, RS-232 and relay ports can also control functionality, allowing upstream triggering and or automated control via a third-party system.

The IQASI82 can be used in conjunction with the RollCall network management system for advanced alarm monitoring and control.

FEATURES

  • Simultaneously monitors two MPEG-2 DVB ASI Transport Streams (TS)
  • Compliant with ETSI TR101290 specification and ATSC TS streams packet, burst and byte modes
  • Multiple switching methods, including near-seamless (between co-timed Identical streams) and non-seamless switching, manual or automatic
  • Transport stream monitoring and user selectable alarms, including:
    • Catastrophic failures such as no transport stream, loss of synchronization or low signal level
    • User-defined maximum and minimum data rates for each transport stream
    • Monitoring PIDs from a customer-specified list up to a maximum of 64 (32 per input)
  • Alarm monitoring and logging via RollCall interface or SNMP
  • Relay bypass for signal path protection
  • RollCall control and monitoring compatible
