Skyline Communications Announces Next Generation Multi-Vendor Network Management Solutions At IBC2008

Skyline Communications, a provider of multi-vendor network management solutions for the IPTV, HFC broadband, broadcast and satellite industry, is bringing an exclusive preview to IBC2008 of its next generation DataMiner solutions at Stand 1.C14.
Centre piece of this next generation solutions is a brand new user interface, designated DataMiner Cube, featuring an innovative and ground-breaking user-centric design.
DataMiner Cube is expected to redefine the way operators can manage complex operational ecosystems and will set a new benchmark for intuitive and efficient network management.
Alongside DataMiner Cube, Skyline Communications is also showcasing DataMiner Customer Premises Equipment Manager (DMS-CPE), a new cutting-edge professional software platform, specifically designed for advanced management of very high volumes of CPE devices, such as cable or DSL modems, embedded multimedia terminal adapters (eMTAs) and set-top boxes (STB) in both telco, HFC, FTTH and satellite environments.
Alongside DataMiner Cube, Skyline Communications is also showcasing DataMiner Customer Premises Equipment Manager (DMS-CPE), a new cutting-edge professional software platform, specifically designed for advanced management of very high volumes of CPE devices, such as cable or DSL modems, embedded multimedia terminal adapters (eMTAs) and set-top boxes (STB) in both telco, HFC, FTTH and satellite environments.
DMS-CPE is capable of collecting any information from any and all CPE devices, and to provide the operator with an intuitive consolidated overview of the status of his entire CPE ecosystem. Via its intuitive web UI and multitude of industry standard interfaces, DMS-CPE generates significant added value for a wide variety of aspects of the operations (eg: including overall QoE monitoring, engineering troubleshooting, customer support, marketing, etc.).
DMS-CPE is available as a standalone platform, with a multitude of interfaces for a seamless integration with all aspects of the operations (eg: provisioning, OSS, trouble ticket systems, help desk environment, customer self care web portals, etc.), but can also be deployed as a fully integrated part of the renowned and widely deployed DataMiner multi-vendor NMS environment.
The latter makes DataMiner the very first platform in the industry effectively enabling operators to view any possible active component in their ecosystem, from content acquisition in the headend to content delivery at the subscriber home, and across any possible vendor or technology boundaries.
DMS-CPE features full user-definable continuous round-robin collection of so-called Key Performance Indicators (KPI) from every single CPE device deployed in the field, and statistically processes those for different user-definable system layers (eg: geographical and logical groupings such as streets, optical nodes, cities, DSLAM, CMTS, VOD groups, etc.) offering operators comprehensive real-time consolidated information, alarming, trending and reporting, etc. at all those user-defined levels.
In addition to that DMS-CPE also supports so-called ad-hoc data collection of virtually any information that possible can be retrieved from the CPE device.
These ad-hoc sessions can either be initiated manually (eg: to support help desk operations), by means of user-defined flags (eg: for more detailed short term trouble shooting) optionally triggered by events in the operational ecosystem, or on scheduled bases.
DMS-CPE comes with a powerful distributed architecture, allowing the operator to run it across any number of physical servers, located at a single central location or distributed across different regions, and also supports disaster recovery hot redundancy functionality.
This architecture provides a wealth of operational advantages and allows operators to perfectly balance its power and speed.
