Rohde & Schwarz has announced that its new monitoring-as-a-service (MaaS) solution R&S PRISMON.cloud will be based on Microsoft Azure.
The MaaS platform enables broadcasters and content providers to integrate advanced monitoring, analytics and trouble-shooting within their content creation and distribution workflows.
Without requiring dedicated hardware, R&S PRISMON.cloud allows users to deploy virtual sensors throughout their distribution chain, helping them guarantee Quality of Service to their customers.
The company said that Microsoft Azure was selected after extensive evaluation of multiple Cloud service providers, as it is the only consistent hybrid Cloud, with more regions than any other Cloud service provider.
Azure also delivers unparalleled developer productivity and offers more comprehensive compliance coverage, including meeting the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Dr Sebastian Jonas, director of data and technology at Rohde & Schwarz, said: “We have selected Microsoft Azure to provide our worldwide customers with a fully managed Software-as-a-Service from many locations, on every continent.
“With Microsoft Azure, our customers benefit from a high-performance, reliable and scalable underlying infrastructure for R&S PRISMON.cloud.”
