Monitor, Test & View - MPEG Transport Stream

IP Core Monitoring Blade

VB-220 Rack Mount Chassis
Part Number: VB220

The VB220 IP-PROBE is a monitoring platform for all applications in any network where digital video is carried across an IP infrastructure. This network service tool is ideal for both pure IPTV networks and hybrid networks with IP transport cores (such as digital cable and terrestrial networks).
The ability to monitor continuously 260 services makes the VB220 blade just as powerful as its portable version, the VB20. 3 x VB220 blades can be placed in one 19" 1RU chassis, giving a total of 780 streams monitored in a small form factor. This is an invaluable tool for any network engineer attempting multicast detection on multiple VLANs or in the process of IGMP tracking.
