Feedback

“Elecard Boro integration was very simple. The system is mobile and extremely fast in deployment.

This elegant and universal solution is reasonably priced and it is highly scalable. It allows monitoring the whole signal delivery chain down to subscribers' devices.

We use the product in everyday routines. Boro gives great support in dispute settlement with content providers. Now we localize and solve the problems faster. Quick troubleshooting is crucial for us as we provide linear TV, so any delay affects negatively our subscribers.

With Elecard product, we have chosen content providers meet the requirements both for primary signal reception and for stream redundancy. We have found and fixed all our signal distribution issues.

We are planning to transfer monitoring from cloud to our own server and to organize the analysis of all TV streams including internal ones.”
