    The Broadcasting Center Europe (BCE) signed a contract for the supply of a comprehensive Skyline Communications DataMiner NMS platform to manage its entire technical infrastructure end-to-end.

    The DataMiner platform will integrate more than 60 different types of devices and systems from various vendors, and is unique in its kind as it will span across different BCE departments, including broadcast, terrestrial transmission, IT and Telecom.

    The DataMiner platform will enable BCE to gradually consolidate its network management needs into a single platform, offering a broad range of professional applications such as alarming, trending, reporting, correlation, automation, notification, etc.

    “When we were looking to renew our complete Network Operations Center infrastructure, we saw this also as a unique opportunity to evaluate the latest network management technologies. In today’s competitive environment and the ever faster evolving technology, there is an undeniable need to consolidate network management and to step away from disparate vendor specific applications,” commented Guy Geimer, Manager of NOC & Playout Operations of BCE. “A detailed analysis of the available solutions in the industry quickly pointed us towards Skyline’s DataMiner platform, as it provided the key ingredients that we were looking for: one open platform, proven & deployed in the field, capable to interface with just any product or system from any manufacturer, offering a comprehensive set of professional applications and user interfaces, and provided by a vendor-independent NMS expert supplier.”

    “We are very honored with the decision of BCE to deploy DataMiner as its top level management system. And in particular because BCE had a progressive vision to consolidate its network management not only across the different vendor boundaries within one specific domain, but also to consolidate further across all different departments, notably broadcast, terrestrial transmission, IT and Telecom,” commented Ben Vandenberghe, Sales & Marketing Director of Skyline Communications. “This progressive vision of BCE illustrates the dynamics of the company and it will generate tangible operational benefits. And this prestigious project enables Skyline also to demonstrate the full potential of its DataMiner multi-vendor NMS platform. After all, one graphical user interface and one standard set of powerful applications will provide access to all technical resources.”

    Skyline will present at IBC 2007 in Amsterdam the new version of its flagship DataMiner multi-vendor network management system. DataMiner 5.0 includes several ground breaking new developments in the field of network management, and is already denominated by industry leaders as the benchmark for network management in the HFC broadband, satellite, IPTV and broadcast industry.

    Located in Luxembourg, Broadcasting Center Europe is a major European player providing technical services in the fields of TV, Radio, Telecommunications and IT. BCE was founded in January 2000 as a result of the merge of different technical entities of RTL Group. With a high qualified and motivated staff of 210 people, BCE serves about 400 clients in various sectors, such as TV channels, Radio stations, film distributors, producers, advertising companies, telecommunications operators and public services. With its know-how at the crossroads of the media technologies, BCE is well positioned to support all projects concerning multi-media content production and distribution.
