DataMiner increases operational agility at SES

(31 March 2020 - Skyline Communications) Skyline Communications announces that its AI-powered DataMiner NMS/OSS platform has recently been deployed by SES, a leader in global content connectivity solutions that provides satellite communications services to broadcasters, video platform operators, content and internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, governments and institutions.

Media and broadband businesses continuously need to adapt to new market demands in an agile manner. Consequently, a large-scale and global operation, such as the one SES has in place, has been growing and evolving for many years, and is expected to continue to do so at an even faster pace. DataMiner connects to any source of information, product, software system or API, allowing flexibility, agility and increasing efficiencies. The platform is also capable of delivering monitoring, orchestration, automation and deep insights from a single pane of glass, end to end.

DataMiner is an NMS/OSS platform featuring capabilities that are required in the satellite industry, such as managing various layers of the infrastructure, including the RF up- and downlinks, comprehensive video services channel management with fully redundant workflows, and related elements such as ground station tracking and satellite telemetry data.

“SES was looking for a solution that unlocks the highest level of proactiveness and automation in a satellite broadcast network. That’s not a luxury anymore, as the communications landscape is evolving and customers’ expectations are growing,” explained Didier Schepens, Sales Manager at Skyline Communications. “As expected, our team delivered on the promise: SES can now enjoy a state-of-the-art management platform that is technology and vendor independent, future proof and scalable, allowing for it to be deployed in various locations.”
