Qatar Media Corporation puts operations on the map with DataMiner
Skyline Communications has recently rolled out its DataMiner NMS/OSS platform at Qatar Media Corporation (QMC), the official broadcasting authority for the state of Qatar. The DataMiner system at QMC will manage the entire current broadcast network, spanning across the various different technologies such as AM, FM, DAB+, DVB-T2, UHF, VHF, and this across transmission sites in Doha, Khissa, Shahanyia and Arish.
“At Qatar Media Corporation, we always keep up with the latest trends and evolutions in the media industry. That’s easier said than done due to the incredibly fast pace of developments and the increasing complexity of our infrastructure,” commented Mohammed Abdulaziz Ali Ibrahim Al-Emadi at QMC.
“A next-generation management and orchestration platform is therefore an absolute must to ensure a future-proof and flexible operation, and DataMiner offers the best solutions on the market to give us that guarantee.”
By achieving a single-pane-of-glass monitoring perspective, QMC unlocks operational benefits. Those range from operational optimisations in problem detection and problem resolution workflows to being able to monitor and report from a service point of view instead of a pointed siloed environment.
“With DataMiner in place, QMC is ensured to live up to their viewers’ high expectations,” explained Glenn D’Haene, sales director for the EMEA and APAC region at Skyline Communications. “It’s becoming common knowledge in the broadcast and media industry that we deeply integrated innovative AI-powered technology into DataMiner.
“As such, the platform enables QMC to keep on delivering high service quality to the consumer, no matter how complex their ecosystem is or will become. And that’s invaluable in this modern and fast-changing world. Viewers don’t expect to be hindered by sudden errors or service failures anymore. It’s so important that operators are able to resolve issues before they even occur. And thanks to DataMiner, they can.”
The management role that DataMiner takes up at QMC’s operation is meant as the first step of a larger project. In time, the intention is to extend the scope to multiple other business units of QMC. The end goal: one single pane of glass to manage and see it all.
