Dielectric will come to the NAB Show with a new managed-services software offering called Apollo.
It is an analytics platform that Dielectric says will allow radio and TV engineers “to take quick and decisive action on current problems, and take preventive actions that eliminate potentially disastrous situations in the future.”
The software was previewed last year. It is an extension of the company’s RFHawkeye remote RF monitoring system and detects anomalies in RF systems for TV and FM broadcasters.
Reports based on Apollo can be customized to prioritize important information and performance trends over selected time periods.
“Dielectric will house Apollo in its new network operations center and provide reports to customers on a quarterly basis that offer performance insights, communicate alarm instances and actions taken, and provide maintenance suggestions intended to reduce system failures and increase performance,” the company said.
“Dielectric customers are also provided remote access to Apollo to generate and review system and performance data at any time.”
VP of Sales Jay Martin said it should be of particular value to customers with multiple transmitter and tower sites. For instance Apollo will observe and capture VSWR measurements from multiple sites connected to the RFHawkeye monitoring platform, and identify any degradation over a specific timeframe, including specific instances when a problem crosses a threshold.
Dielectric will be in Booth W3601 at the NAB Show.
