The microVB™ is a breakthrough in miniaturized remote monitoring and
analysis for IPTV applications. With the microVB system, IPTV
operators can for the first time gather complete and accurate data
about the performance at the viewer's set-top box, using a
cost-effective user-installed monitoring device.
Enabling deep packet inspection
without requiring a technician to visit the customer's home to
install the device or diagnose problems, the microVB is robust and
small enough to be delivered to the customer by mail. Once
installed, the microVB automatically locates an appropriate server
and starts monitoring the quality of the signal received by the
set-top box. The microVB reports the QoE parameters, allowing remote

The new VideoBRIDGE v4.2 software release introduces new
capabilities for fault-tracking, a revised and improved interface,
and increased integration between microVB™ systems deployed at
subscriber premises and the server network.
VideoBRIDGE v4.2 software
features a streamlined user interface that brings together the major
physical functions for ready access and faster fault-finding.
Further increasing usability in operation, v4.2 offers extended TR
101 290 analysis capability and searchable table decoding of all
tables that are transmitted with the signal, including channel
names, conditional access, and program guide. Users can search by
service name or program ID and show all the tables that correspond.
Increased MPTS thumbnail functionality and VBC server support for
control of the microVB devices add to the integration of
VideoBRIDGE's end-to-end monitoring and analysis capability.
