Skyline Communications, leading supplier of multi-vendor network management solutions, announces that Telenor Satellite Broadcasting has selected its flagship DataMiner NMS platform as its top level network management system. The decision by Telenor came after a thorough RFP proceeding and a detailed market analysis. The DataMiner platform will enable Telenor to create a consolidated overview of its satellite communication and broadcast services, across any vendor and technology boundaries.
“We are very pleased to welcome Telenor to the ever expanding family of high-profile operators that rely on DataMiner for their end-to-end network management needs,” commented Glenn D’Haene, DataMiner Sales Manager at Skyline Communications. “Telenor is one of Europe’s top leading satellite operators, and its decision to deploy DataMiner as its umbrella management platform further solidifies our leading position as supplier of multi-vendor network management systems for the HFC broadband, satellite, IPTV and broadcast industry.”
DataMiner will be installed at the Telenor-owned Nittedal teleport, located just north of Oslo. The facility provides services for VSAT networks, TV broadcasting, interactive multimedia services as well as tracking, telemetry and control for satellite operations. Nittedal has more than 40 antenna systems in operation, ranging from 3.3m to 18.0m in diameter. The geographical position of the station in the North of Europe enables these systems to access satellites with footprints covering large areas of the world, including Europe, Africa and Asia, as well as the eastern part of South America.
Today DataMiner is largely deployed by leading operators and has grown to become the benchmark for multi-vendor network management. At IBC 2007 in September, Skyline Communications is going to unveil the new 5.0 version of its platform, which includes again major ground breaking innovations that are expected to further increase its momentum as leading technology.
