The Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Network (RTRN) has selected Skyline Communications’ DataMiner to manage the most elaborate DVB-T2 network infrastructure spread across Russia.
RTRN operates a state-of-the-art DVB-T2 terrestrial network, covering a huge geographical region. The network consists of more than 5000 digital transmitter sites that all need to be orchestrated and operated in a single, synchronized manner.
Nation-wide content is distributed over a satellite network, whereas content is regionalized in more than 70 regions. The sophisticated network transmits both national and regional content to the customers’ homes using a complex mix of best-of-breed equipment provided by specialist suppliers.
“The RTRN network really benefits from the DataMiner system architecture, as it can be scaled to manage and operate both small networks and the world’s largest network infrastructures. The multi-vendor nature of our system allows RTRN to deploy the best suited equipment today and in the future. We even made the provisioning of the DataMiner platform a simple task; our OSS/BSS foundation pulls all provisioning data from RTRN’s Central Network Inventory database,” comments Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications. “No other system reduces operational cost to that extent.”
