Nautel is a great box. I have several myself.
The caveat to Nautel’s AUI (Advanced User Interface) is that it is Adobe Flash based. To view it on an Android mobile device, you need the Puffin browser or something similar. Flash makes the cool displays work, but it will eat data if the browser window is left open.
Nautel is almost ready to release the AUI Companion to run on your mobile device. It uses SNMP hooks to get its data, so it is limited in abilities.
The new AUI2 that is HTML5 based won’t be out for at least a year per Nautel. And we all know what that means….wink wink.
All of this from the NUG at the NAB Show last Sunday morning.
One further note for those who have a budget crunch. Nicom has a new design for their transmitter which is a two piece main board which includes a web server interface. They are using the latest technology devices in their RF amps. I have several 11 year old low power Nicoms that have only needed fans or power supplies (Meanwell from your favorite vendor) or 5 caps on the mother board for the minus 12 supply. So, anyhow, if price point is your first criteria, they are worth a look, IMHO.
Happy Friday. Glad to be home, but the snow can go.

For a transmitter, I cannot recommend Nautel highly enough. :)
I believe they will meet most (if not all) of your requirements.

Also planning to replace our transmitter, which also suffered from the hurricane, and want to get an all in one unit that can be remotely controlled and monitored.
