Paradigm completes customised Network Management System for Sky News Arabia

by Staff Reporter | August 23rd, 2012

Paradigm Communication Systems Ltd has completed the design and installation of Sky News Arabia’s Network Management System (NMS) in Abu Dhabi.

The challenge from the Sky News Arabia team was to provide an extremely efficient, simple to use, automated Network Management System for the antenna farm and contribution network

Based on Paradigm’s hierarchical NMS architecture, the MiNDER system reportedly provides a single system interface to control antennas, encoders, modulators, receivers and flexible L-band routing infrastructure.

The MiNDER NMS was designed and provided by Paradigm, in close cooperation with Sky News Arabia. With Paradigm software engineers onsite the company was reportedly able to customise their core NMS GUI, with Sky News Arabia operator feedback throughout the whole design and implementation lifecycle.

Operators using Paradigm’s MiNDER NMS can, the company claims, lower operating expenditure by controlling the contribution network from a single and intuitive control system. Furthering the functionality of the NMS, Paradigm has reportedly implemented a management interface to the MiNDER NMS from ScheduAll allowing automation and control of the antenna farm from within ScheduAll. This reportedly enhances the solution and provides advanced scheduling capabilities.

“The challenge from the Sky News Arabia team was to provide an extremely efficient, simple to use, automated Network Management System for the antenna farm and contribution network. With our new scheduling interface to MiNDER we were able to offer the customer something extra,” comments Ulf Sandberg, managing director – Paradigm. “When a customer tells you that this integrated system takes a booking from minutes to seconds, you realise it’s a game changer”.
