The choice for the award-winning DataMiner Solution is based on its extensively proven capability and wider success for the maritime VSAT sector as well as the satellite, broadcasting, cable, telco and mobile industry. The DataMiner NMS/OSS platform enables the customer to implement tailored solutions on the fly, which results in a highly efficient process of striving towards the highest possible operational excellence. It has extremely customizable user interfaces that are intuitive, very graphical and perfectly suited to the situational awareness and high-tempo demands of any network operations center.

“DataMiner is immensely versatile and adapts seamlessly to the operational needs of Nova Systems,” commented Naveendran Murthy, Sales Manager APAC at Skyline Communications. “The system offers complete independence from any technology and any vendor, today and in the future, as the system is guaranteed to interface with any type of product regardless of protocol or supplier, including both hardware and software products, and including both on-premises and off-premises products.”

With DataMiner, the AgileSat tool was able to focus on enabling effective satcom mobility. It addresses new-generation satellite systems running on high-rate, high-mobility applications. They include communications-on-the-move (COTM), multi-satellite maritime satcom, drone video backhaul, telemedicine video and agile secure network extensions, at both ends of the satellite link, for both the central NOC and the new field user.

By integrating DataMiner, the Nova Systems’ tool can significantly simplify the addition of commercial satcom capacity to an existing national satcom capability. On top of that, Skyline’s platform also controls and monitors the entire operational ecosystem, serving as the single pane of glass for end-to-end orchestration. Nova Systems can make full use of the DataMiner system thanks to their fleet of qualified DataMiner in-house engineers who are trained to tailor the system to user-specific needs and ever-growing data networks.
