Sentry Edge II™ is the high-performance, high-density RF monitoring solution from Tektronix. The product detects transport stream and RF modulation errors generated by equipment errors or failures, and provides reporting and alerting capabilities for services in the RF and TS domains. Sentry Edge II delivers high quality RF measurements at scale for 24/7 video monitoring environments economically.
Sentry Edge II takes RF monitoring to the next level with monitoring density of 4 or 8 tuners per unit. More tuners per unit reduce the time to round robin,so RF issues can be identified sooner. Customers can round robin or park on any of the tuners, or chose any combination of these options.
Excellent MER performance across the entire frequency range lets service providers detect a drop in signal quality before there is impact to subscribers.
