Incorporation of Skyline Communications by Leo. Vandenberghe
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.
New company mission
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.
First customer deployment
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.
Most Promising Enterprise
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.
Export Lion 2012 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.

Deloitte award Technology fast 50
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.
Deloitte award Technology fast 50
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.
Teleport Technology of the year
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 would be constructed next to its current head office, which would add no less than 12 floors of room for further expansion. A new office was also opened in Lisbon, Portugal.
A big year for Skyline
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.
Best Network Management Solution
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 demonstrated once again that the DataMiner end-to-end multi-vendor network management and orchestration solution is truly unrivaled.
IABM BaM Award & first DataMiner Inspire event
In Las Vegas, Skyline won a prestigious IABM BaM Award, and during the first edition of the exclusive DataMiner Inspire event, the brand-new DataMiner X was unveiled.

The (hi)story of Skyline Communications
connecting the world since 1985
It all started in the year 1985. Back in the day, Skyline Communications was a local hardware distributor, well-known for its expertise and technical support. But around the turn of the century, the introduction of the DataMiner NMS/OSS platform changed the game completely. Skyline quickly acquired the main position in the market of vendor-independent network management solutions, resulting in the innovative and thought-leading company it is today.
A group of people going boldly into the unexpected
Skyline is a network of people. People who connect with each other and let information flow to make great things happen. That requires a high level of flexibility and agility. But that makes it all the more fun, doesn't it? At Skyline, we’re one entity, capable of shifting into whatever shape the market calls for. Because that’s what the new world is all about. The key to success is being able to adapt to change. We’re prepared for the unexpected, every single day.
