Intelligent Wave Inc. Provides Finland’s Broadcaster Yle with IP Flow-monitoring Solution “EoM”

– Vital Real-time Monitoring Solution in Next-generation IP Broadcasting –

TOKYO, June 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Intelligent Wave Inc. (“IWI” hereinafter), based in Tokyo, announced on June 23 that it has provided Yleisradio Oy (“Yle” hereinafter), a national public service media, with “EoM,” an IP flow-monitoring solution.

EoM Implementation Backstory

Yle has implemented EoM in a plan to monitor and analyze IP flows in an upcoming renewed MCR Control Room. Below are the points highly evaluated during the POC.

EoM Evaluation Points

  • Compatible with 100GbE, and supports a variety of protocols
  • Expectation on higher availability without additional cost with 24/7 monitoring
  • Detailed troubleshooting made possible with past data analysis
  • Integration with third-party network management system
  • Software-based solution utilizing OSS allowing flexible configuration

About EoM

EoM is an IP flow-monitoring solution (*1) co-developed with Japan’s public broadcaster NHK aimed towards the broadcasting industry. EoM combines IWI’s high-speed data-processing technology from its payment system development business and the power of FPGAs (*2). With the spread of 4K/8K broadcasting, it is becoming vital for broadcasters to shift to IP transmission, which calls for a tool to monitor IP flows in detail in order to maintain/increase the quality. EoM supports standard IP broadcasting protocols, such as SMPTE ST2110, ST2022, etc., contributing to drastically cutting down operation cost for IP studios by analyzing/monitoring data in real time as well as analyzing past data. IWI will continuously develop features and functions that will contribute to supporting and maintaining the quality of IP broadcast.
