Artel Integrates Video Transport Platform With Skyline DataMiner™ Network Management SystemPosted on October 12, 2012
The integration of the two products offers enhanced convenience, efficiency, and flexibility to the global base of network operators deploying operational systems comprised of disparate equipment by allowing for a centralized management system.
The integration of Artel’s DL4000 with Skyline’s DataMiner benefits operators by offering a leading and proven full-featured NMS package for the umbrella management of workflows that contain Artel solutions. Additionally, the solution is future-proof because it’s easily integrated with other third-party products that may be added to the workflow later. While a mix of proprietary, vendor-specific solutions can create operational limitations and increase the overall cost of ownership because of interoperability issues (i.e. lack of automated cross-correlation, uniform access security), a vendor-agnostic NMS like DataMiner eliminates this concern.
“Integrating support for the DataMiner NMS into our video transport platform provides
operational flexibility for our customers — and that’s consistent with our business
philosophy,” said Richard Dellacanonica, Artel’s president. “This integration makes it easier for our existing customers to begin using DataMiner to manage their networks. Plus, operations already using DataMiner can seamlessly add Artel into their workflows.”
The DL4000 digital video transport system from Artel Video Systems is a nextgeneration, modular platform that offers reliable and easy-to-deploy solutions for critical video backhaul and contribution applications. Telcos, video service providers, and CATV operators have come to rely on the flexible DL4000 to effectively manage their transport needs for any video format over diverse network topologies.
“We applaud Artel’s strategic and progressive decision to offer its customer base a
powerful NMS solution based on an open-architecture, multivendor platform,” said Ben
Vandenberghe, sales and marketing director at Skyline Communications. “DataMiner is
deployed worldwide and is compatible with a wide range of products, and now through
the integration with DL4000, we will be able to further help network operators realize
greater efficiency and flexibility.”
The DataMiner network management platform enables operators to monitor large
systems made up of disparate equipment with a single platform. DataMiner improves the operator’s ability to manage large, complex networks by increasing the speed and
efficiency of data gathering and analysis that operators can then use to improve
customer service and network performance. The platform enables end-to-end integration
of the most complex technical ecosystems and has been deployed by leading operators
