How do you prepare your satellite networks for new services?
With the continuous innovation going on in aerospace, satellite operators and service providers have to prepare for the unknown. Modern satellite networks need to be efficient, flexible and capable of delivering the highest possible uptime, and with that come many different products and communication links that need to be orchestrated and monitored as one. The DataMiner NMS/OSS system combines all the above and is of strategic importance to world-class satellite networks and operations, providing resiliency, perfect end-to-end visibility, confidence monitoring and much more.
How can you rebuild your media network to make it flexible, versatile and cloud-ready?
Whether you are a network provider, programmer, broadcaster, sports association or service provider, it is very likely that you are rebuilding your media network to make it more versatile, cloud-ready, and flexible to run just about any service ranging from remote production to distribution services. At the basis of the technology transition lies the data plane migration to IP, cloud and virtualization. But those new technologies come with a much higher complexity and only benefits a business when rolled out with an end-to-end workflow orchestration and monitoring platform. With DataMiner, you can turn complexity of the network into quick services launches, higher service and higher uptime. Furthermore, you can leverage cloud capacity and of course, increase operational efficiency.
HOW CAN YOU ACHIEVE 360° VISIBILITY, CONTROL AND AUTOMATION IN A MEDIA DATA CENTER?
The new year 2018 will be another landmark in the evolution towards an all software-defined and virtualized media infrastructure. Many technology companies are launching a variety of microservices in order to create and deliver complex services to the customer and consumer. Broadcasters and service providers may opt to deploy data centers of their own (private data centers), to outsource to cloud providers (XaaS), or to choose a hybrid model. In each of these operating models, the complexity of managing service workflows increases significantly compared to on-premises bespoke infrastructures. Learn more about how can you achieve 360° visibility, control and automation in a media data center.
Automating the teleport
For a long time, satellite communications has been a manual operation. Today, a lot of opportunities lie in the automation of ground infrastructure as well as upcoming programmable satellites. Learn why and how the AI-powered DataMiner platform turns opportunity into reality through automation and orchestration. Tune in and prepare for Satellite 2019!
Satellites, Teleports and Big Data
Wednesday, 08 May, 10:45 AM
The big data revolution is big news on the ground, but how will it impact the business of connecting the highway and the skyway? NSR estimates that the biggest markets for big data via satellite will be in transportation, government/military, and oil and gas – sectors in which teleport operators are deeply embedded. Devices and connectivity are key parts of the mix, but so are applications: formatted data streams and data analytics are the end products that customers actually need. Success in big data requires teleport operators to evolve beyond connectivity to management of complex networks, sophisticated information processing and a deep understanding of customer requirements. What are the opportunities and business challenges for teleport and satellite operators, and how will they gain a meaningful share of a high-growth market?
Panel discussion with
ASK AN EXPERT
In this Q&A series for WTA, our expert Steven goes into detail on the transformation in satellite communications from a rather manual to an automated business. He explains how you can turn the opportunities this transformation brings with it into reality.
1. For a very long time, the ground side of satellite communications was a pretty manual business. It is now going through a wave of automation. What do you think is driving it?
2. In a teleport operation, what are the biggest opportunities for automation? Can you share some specific examples?
3a. For teleport operators, what are the most important questions to ask when considering any kind of automated management system?
3b. What is required to introduce an automation system smoothly in a real operation ?
4. What is the role of machine learning and artificial intelligence in today’s teleport automation systems?
5. What capabilities do automated management systems deliver today – or will deliver soon – that you could not have imagined five years ago?
