“DataMiner 9.0 again overhauls the NMS/OSS landscape. Its innovative end-to-end service and resource orchestration technology enables operators to book, schedule and automate the setup of complex services over the entire network without compromises. Never before have teleport operators been able to run complex services so easily across multiple satellite segments, frequency bands, multi-spot beam constellations, fiber links and gateways,” said Steven Soenens, Product Marketing Director at Skyline Communications. “DataMiner truly turns teleport operators into network operators, enabling many new business models and services offerings. In the past, operators’ business growth was capped because of proprietary and closed infrastructures both for SCPC and VSAT. With DataMiner, operators transcend any such limitations: they can deploy the most suitable technologies at optimal capital and operational cost, and seamlessly run services end to end. DataMiner has become the most strategic asset available to create profitable business growth, and as such it is one of the most fundamental building blocks of any teleport business dedicated to success.”

“DataMiner already manages more than 4500 products from over 500 different technology vendors in the media industry, which is unprecedented. This truly unique multi-vendor aspect, and the vendor independence of the corporation behind the product, set DataMiner apart from any other system on the market, and it is the foundation of all those successful deployments worldwide. As a result, DataMiner has become the leading platform to manage SNG networks, sports contribution, broadcast exchange networks, studios, VoD assets, playouts, cable and telco headends, satellite uplinks, DTH, DTT, cable and telco plants, etc.” said Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications. “And our quest continues today with our investments in sophisticated big data analytics, further expanding the reach of DataMiner to monitor QoS of millions of remote terminals in a pro-active manner, faster than any other system on the market. Operational excellence of our customers is peaking because of DataMiner.”

“Our finalists represent the leading edge of the business-to-business transmission industry,” said WTA Director of Development Louis Zacharilla. “As service providers and creators of great new technologies, they are adapting to the immense changes sweeping our industry and helping to create the teleport of tomorrow.” The winners of the award will be announced at the 21st annual Teleport Awards for Excellence Ceremony and Luncheon on March 8 during the SATELLITE conference at the Gaylord National Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
