Skyline Communications was founded in 1985 by Mr. Leo. Vandenberghe, who is currently still Managing Director of Skyline Communications. The company started as a local distributor for leading manufacturers, and quickly became renowned for its expertise and its superior technical support.
In 2000, Skyline Communications repositioned itself as a software vendor, with the ambitious mission to redefine how complex broadcast and telecom systems would be managed in the future. For this purpose, the DataMiner network management software was developed.
2001 saw the first deployment of DataMiner 2.0 at a customer, allowing them unprecedented visibility and control over their network.
Skyline Communications entered into key contracts with operators such as Telenet and Belgacom in 2004. At Belgacom, DataMiner was deployed as the top management layer for its satellite services.
By 2005, DataMiner was integrated with over 500 third-party products. In this same year, it was also awarded as best network management solution.
The number of third-party products DataMiner was integrated with had increased to over 2,000 by 2008.
In 2011, Skyline was awarded as "Most Promising Enterprise 2011". By this time, DataMiner was already deployed in over 85 countries around the world. In that year, Skyline was also runner-up in the Export Lion award.
Skyline received the prestigious Export Lion award in 2012. DataMiner could then already be integrated with over 3,000 third-party products. To cope with the constant expansion of the company, 2012 also saw the start of the construction of new headquarter facilities alongside the E403 highway in Izegem, next to Exit 6.
In 2013, Skyline was listed among the Top 50 Belgian Entrepreneurs by De Tijd. In that same year, Skyline reached the milestone of 100+ employees.
Skyline was listed in the Deloitte Technology Fast50 in 2014, and on top of that, it was also awarded “Best Product and Quality of Service” by Megacable Mexico. In that year, Skyline also opened a new office in Miami, Florida, and moved its head office to the newly constructed facilities in Izegem.
In 2015, Skyline was again listed as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Belgium, receiving the Technology Fast50 award for the second year in a row.
Skyline received the Teleport Technology of the Year award from the World Teleport Association (WTA) in 2016. In this same year, Skyline also announced that a second office tower will be constructed next to its current head office, which will add no less than 12 floors of room for further expansion. We also opened a new office in Lisbon, Portugal.
Skyline received the Export Lion award for the second time in 2017, this time in the category for medium to large companies. This is also the year when the construction of a second office tower in Izegem started, and when a new office was opened in Singapore. The milestone of 250 employees was reached.
Skyline received the “best monitoring or network management solution” CSI award for the second time. The judges were impressed with the AI-powered DataMiner Augmented Operations, which demonstrates once again that the DataMiner end-to-end multi-vendor network management and orchestration solution is truly unrivaled.
Skyline has been announced as award winner at the IABM BaM Awards® party last night in Las Vegas. A panel of no less than 40 independent expert judges acknowledged their renowned DataMiner platform as the global leading platform for orchestration and monitoring of SMPTE-2110 all-IP broadcast production, playout and distribution.
