Izegem, Belgium(21 Jan 2015)

One of the leading telecommunications operators in Russia and CIS countries has recently announced the launch of a new satellite TV brand. 160 TV channels in six languages will be available to the subscribers, with support of advanced functions such as pausing, video on demand, etc. The satellite television broadcast signal will be carried by the spacecraft ABS-2. 95% of the population of Russia, from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, will be able to receive the digital signal.

The DataMiner solution at the earth station spans across a wide variety of products from various industry vendors (such as CPI, Symmetricom, Newtec, Vertex, etc.) and provides fully unified remote monitoring and control of all system components, along with comprehensive fault and performance management.

All equipment is now consolidated in one intuitive overview. This includes easy navigation with bubble-up and drill-down maps, block diagrams of all system components with alarm color coding, and real-time display of key metrics. The entire UI is designed in DataMiner Visual Overview, which enables operators to create and edit their UIs instantly with Microsoft Visio®, and to apply changes on the fly without affecting the ongoing operation.

“This is a unique project that provides a completely new product for Russia, combining the advantages of satellite TV and mobile communications,” said Bart Reynaert, Sales Manager at Skyline Communications. “Customers in remote areas will receive high-quality TV content that was previously available only to IPTV users in large cities with a well-developed telecommunications infrastructure. Deployment of the powerful next-generation end-to-end multi-vendor network management software DataMiner is of utmost importance for such projects – considering the fierce competition in the telecom market, ensuring the quality and availability of services is vital. DataMiner not only provides fully user-definable interactive UIs, but also goes straight across all possible technology and vendor domains. DataMiner is truly the first solution in the industry that provides a single consolidated management platform for the entire operation.”
