    1.1 About the Probe 1.1.1 Probe - Overview The VB-2 series of probes consists of the VB220 rack-mount IP probe and the VB20 portable IP probe. The VB220 can be bundled with a range of interface modules for monitoring of signals as found in cable (QAM), satellite (DVB-S/S2) and terrestrial (DVB-T/T2/8VSB).

  • Page 8: Probe - Functionality

    In subsequent text the word Probe is used as a generic reference to VB20 and VB220. 1.1.3 Probe - Functionality An IP-based network is fully transparent with respect to signal contents quality, provided that the IP-packets arrive, and provided that they arrive in time. The probe therefore uses the patented MediaWindow to allow monitoring at-a-glance of packet loss and errors in inter-packet arrival time.
