2101XW-BMG 10G/40G

The BMG 10G/40G Media Platform

High Capacity Broadcast Monitoring Gateway

The exponential growth of IP based streaming networks has allowed both broadcast the service providers to scale operations faster than ever. Consumers are now being offered the luxury of watching any content, anywhere and at any time, and expect the highest level of service without compromise.

This unification between IP networks and streaming media does present its own set of challenges to ensure that media is originated, processed and delivered in compliance. IP flows can frequently suffer from packet loss, jitter, encoding impairments and transport violations to name a few.

Having the right monitoring and visualization technologies in place to proactively identify impairments and service disruption is imperative to the success of the operation. Providius has engineered the Broadcast Monitoring Gateway (BMG) high density analysis platform as the 24/7 eyes and ears of both your video service and delivery network.

The 2101XW-10G can acquire, decode and analyze a wide variety of media flows across multiple high capacity IP interfaces including:

UDP Formats
OTT Formats
Production Formats
Audio Formats
MPEG-2 TS, H.264, HEVC
SMPTE 2022-6/7, 2110*, ASPEN RDD-37
MP1-L1, AAC, HE-AAC, A-52

The BMG incorporates the essential analysis and decoding processing necessary to alert the operation tiers of service and packet transport related impairments for production, linear and adaptive bitrate (ABR) defined services. At the heart of the BMG, packets are processed for service compliance with also the unique ability to analyze the conditions of the delivery network. This dual focussed analysis approach provides a clear demarcation between video delivery and video processing thereby drastically reducing the mean time to repair (MTTR) and eliminating finger pointing between transport and processing departments.
