Product icon

ActiveCore® RF Layer Monitoring Receiver

  • In-Band interference detection and visualization
  • A comprehensive set of analyzed parameters and plots
  • A rich selection of tools for remote monitoring
Based on ActiveCore® Platform, AVQ1020 (2nd Gen) is a monitoring receiver for digital terrestrial broadcasting standards. It has been designed as an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for remote monitoring digital transmitter system performance and transmitted signal quality and, therefore, ensuring consistent Quality of Service (QoS) of the network.

The receiver features a comprehensive alarm system that can be accessed via multiple interfaces and be set up to control the main components of the transmitter system in case of an emergency. 

Additionally, with its extensive set of tools for monitoring and analyzing RF and COFDM, the receiver is versatile for use as a stand-alone unit during production tests at a transmitter manufacturing facility.
