Hot on the heels of announcing its first ever Monitoring-as-a-service solution – R&S PRISMON.cloud – Munich-based broadcast technology specialist, Rohde & Schwarz, has given notice that the platform will be based on Microsoft Azure.

Building on the success of its market-leading R&S PRISMON monitoring system, R&S PRISMON.cloud leverages from cloud-infrastructure possibilities to tackle the age-old monitoring challenge. Provided in a Monitoring-as-a-Service (MaaS) form, it enables broadcasters and content providers to quickly integrate advanced monitoring, analytics and trouble-shooting within their content creation and distribution workflows.

With R&S PRISMON.cloud no dedicated hardware is required, and flexible, scalable price models offer highly cost-efficient solutions that can be tailored to each user’s specific monitoring needs. Within minutes, R&S PRISMON.cloud users can deploy virtual sensors throughout their distribution chain. Through this advanced monitoring capability, broadcasters, content creators, network operators and service providers can guarantee the Quality of Service to their customers. In highly competitive markets, this translates to a superior Quality of Experience for the consumers and consequently reduced churn.

In developing R&S PRISMON.cloud, Rohde & Schwarz’s selection of the most appropriate cloud service provider was critical. After extensive evaluation of multiple cloud service providers, Rohde & Schwarz selected Microsoft Azure. “We have selected Microsoft Azure to provide our worldwide customers with a fully managed Software-as-a-Service from many locations, on every continent,” commented Dr. Sebastian Jonas, Director of Data & Technology at Rohde & Schwarz. “With Microsoft Azure, our customers benefit from a high performance, reliable and scalable underlying infrastructure for R&S PRISMON.cloud.

Azure is the only consistent hybrid cloud, has more regions than any other cloud service provider, delivers unparalleled developer productivity and offers more comprehensive compliance coverage – including meeting the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
