SAMbuddy-T2MI is the most comprehensive T2-MI Analysis solution which turns your PC or laptop into a fully featured T2-MI analyser. The comprehensive SNMP based monitoring capabilities of SAMbuddy-T2MI allow to establish powerful T2-MI monitoring solutions.
– UDP unicast/multicast
– support of various suppliers
– play-back of recorded T2-MI streams
SAMbuddy-T2MI supports both streams with SI tables (PAT/PMT + PCR info) and without SI tables. For streams without SI tables the needed T2-MI PID can be defined manually.
The following parameters according the ETSI specification TR 101 290 are monitored:
The following parameters of the T2-MI Transport Stream (TS) are monitored:
The following parameters of the T2-MI Super-Frame are monitored:
All parameters of the T2-MI L1-Pre, L1-Post and L1-Dyn signaling parts are monitored according to ETSI specification EN 302 755, e.g.
All parameters of the Timestamp packet are monitored according to ETSI specification EN 302 755, e.g.
All parameters of all PLPs are monitored simultaneously according to ETSI specification EN 302 755, e.g.
 The entire T2-MI Transport Stream can be streamed to local or remote destinations for further analysis tasks, e.g. MPEG analysis according ETSI TR 101 290.
 SAMbuddy-T2MI extracts all PLPs from the current T2-MI Transport Stream and each particular PLP can be streamed to a local or remote destination for further analysis tasks on all technical layers, e.g. MPEG, EPG, Subtitle, Audio/Video …
Service and network providers have to check whether the parameters of the RF output signal of the transmitter corresponds to the parameters of the T2-MI input signal.
With decontis solutions such a check can be realized very easily. The figure on the right shows a typical application. In the head-end a decontis monitoring probe receives the T2-MI signal via IP or ASI interface and in the field one or more decontis monitoring probes receive the DVB-T2 signal via RF receivers. On the field monitoring probes the SAMbuddy-RF application is running and in the head-end probe the application SAMbuddy-T2MI is running. To get the RF parameters from a field monitoring probe, SAMbuddy-T2MI creates IP connections to the corresponding SAMbuddy-RF application(s). Beside the T2-MI parameters, SAMbuddy-T2MI receives and displays the current RF measurements from SAMbuddy-RF, e.g. Rx Level, BERaV, MER, PER …
