Singapore broadcaster and digital TV transmission network operator Mediacorp has adopted Skyline Communications’ DataMiner platform to monitor its DVB-T2 transmission network.

Mediacorp Singapore logo 24 June 2018The setup comprises more than 1,500 transmission and network elements, spread across more than 100 different locations. The managed broadcast equipment is sourced from many different vendors and includes distribution, transmission and monitoring products. In addition, the system provides full monitoring of facilities and environmental conditions, said Skyline Communications.

“Mediacorp is an established pioneer in the broadcasting industry, so we consider this partnership to be yet another huge step forward for both companies. They will strongly benefit from deploying our system, as DataMiner is the only system that provides an entire service management over all video and network devices, data centres and virtualised software functions, regardless of vendor or model,” said Ben Vandenberghe, CEO, Skyline Communications.

For the DVB-T2 deployment plan Mediacorp had to cope with the reliance on SFN technology throughout the island, and the need to enable indoor reception for every home in Singapore. The scale of the project required complex implementations to complete the process, said Skyline Communications.

“DataMiner has been instrumental to the tracking and elimination of defects throughout the network in an early stage,” said Jonathan Triboulet, director APAC Operations, Skyline Communications.

“To this day, we are still continuously adding new features to the system in order to further satisfy the customer’s desires, but I believe it is safe to conclude we have already reached a highly tailored system that meets today’s demand of a comprehensive network management system.”
