PARADIGM COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS LTD COMPLETES CUSTOMISED NETWORK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR SKY NEWS ARABIA
Enabling a truly seamless and automated workflow, by integrating multi-vendor network control of the antenna farm using a scheduling framework.
ALTON, UK – August 22, 2012
(Virtual Press Office
) Paradigm Communication Systems Ltd today announced the completion of Sky News Arabia’s Network Management System (NMS) in Abu Dhabi.
Based on Paradigm’s hierarchical NMS architecture, the MiNDER system 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 we were able to customize our core NMS GUI, with Sky News Arabia operator feedback throughout the whole design and implementation lifecycle.
Operators using Paradigm’s MiNDER NMS can lower operating expenditure by controlling the contribution network from a single and intuitive control system. Furthering the functionality of our NMS, Paradigm has implemented a management interface to the MiNDER NMS from ScheduAll allowing automation and control of the antenna farm from within ScheduAll. This further enhances the solution and provides advanced scheduling capabilities.
Sky News Arabia will offer a new and fresh approach to news across the Arab world. Designed from the outset to support the latest technological developments, Paradigm are confident that this new contribution centre will support the growth of Sky News Arabia in this exciting region.
“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”.
