As well as announcing the latest release of its DataMiner network management platform, Skyline Communications is also highlighting what the company describes as its revolutionary DataMiner CPE Manager solution. According to Skyline, it is the first professional OSS solution harnessing the power of big data technology in the IPTV, satellite, HFC broadband and broadcast industry.
The platform is claimed to enable operators to mine massive amounts of operational data across the entire population of customer premises equipment, including modems, set-top-boxes, OTT clients etc. It is also claimed to allow aggregation and correlation of data around the clock to detect anomalies and system issues across the entire ecosystem.
DataMiner CPE Manager is designed to offer operators unprecedented visibility into their operation, and to deliver significant operational savings and increases in quality of end-user experience. With the new DataMiner 8.5 release, Skyline says that it has now started leveraging the unique capability to use a single platform for both CPE management and traditional device management. Those two worlds now come together in the DataMiner 8.5 release, providing a seamless navigation and cross correlation between real-world devices (such as amplifiers, CMTs, DSLAMs) and aggregated CPE data.
