Burk Arcadia24 Is Used in Bay Area MaxxCasting

Bonneville deploys a monitoring system to keep an eye on synched system

GeoBroadcast Solutions said Bonneville’s recent MaxxCasting installation at three stations in San Francisco has integrated Burk Technology’s Arcadia24 monitoring.

“The Arcadia24’s secure web-based remote control accessibility allows the station engineers, managers and the GeoBroadcast team to remotely monitor and be alerted to any engineering issues from virtually anywhere via mobile, desktop and tablet devices,” the company said. The technology pairing will be featured as a live demo at the Burk booth at the NAB Show.

MaxxCasting uses a combination of radio and cellular technology in the deployment of a cluster of low, directionalized and synchronized FM booster sites. KOIT, KMVQ and KBLX deployed the system last year using a five-node single-frequency network and HD Radio. 

Burk’s cloud-based monitoring platform is hosted on AWS servers, GBS said.

“Additionally, web links from mobile devices to the Arcadia24 server are locked down and encrypted using the latest generation of Transport Layer Security (TLS), ensuring that only authorized users can access and control each remote facility. Encrypted VPN tunnels and firewall protection also guard communications between Arcadia24 and each remote site.”

Jason Ornellas is regional director of technology at Bonneville. “We needed a degree of on-call management to monitor and troubleshoot the technology, particularly at launch, since it was spread across the entire Bay area,” he told GBS. Ornellas gave an endorsement of both the MaxxCasting solution and Arcadia24 for monitoring large-scale implementations.

Burk’s NAB Show booth will be W2753.
