Skyline Communications has added another satellite operator to its client list. 


Skyline: DataMiner will manage and control all uplinks and downlinks at the of Hellas Sat teleport in Cyprus

The latest addition is Hellas Sat, who offer services in Europe, the Middle East and Southern Africa. Skyline’s DataMiner will manage and control all of Hellas Sat’s uplinks and downlinks at the company’s teleport in Cyprus.

Thomas Kalamaris, technical director at Hellas Sat, said: “As a major player in the satellite industry, it is vital for us to deliver high-quality services that answer the needs of all our different customers. All the while keeping competitive prices, of course. But in order to do so, it is now more crucial than ever to have an end-to-end management system in place that is able to help us stay in control of our operation, no matter which technologies or vendors we decide to implement in our business. After all, our business is one that constantly evolves. It wouldn’t make sense to go for a solution that fits us only today. The future is equally, if not much more important. On top of that, capabilities such as real-time reporting, AI-powered forecasting and trending are absolutely essential to us. Those are just some of the reasons why we went for Skyline’s DataMiner.”

Marina Nikita, sales manager at Skyline Communications, said: “Something Hellas Sat and Skyline have in common is that we’re both looking beyond today’s reality. Because that reality might be completely different tomorrow, and therefore creating an agile operation is key. In order for a leading satellite company to stay ahead of competitors and to keep their customers happy, you cannot get around the fact that a powerful end-to-end, multi-vendor monitoring and orchestration solution has become a must.

“Hellas Sat understands that strategic perspective very well,” she continued. “They want to be able to add new products from any vendor they like, on the fly and without any boundaries regarding API, hardware or software, on premises or off premises. To leverage all those resources in a sophisticated manner via a single consolidated pane of glass, that’s essentially what DataMiner is all about. Hellas Sat is now set for the future, and whatever they decide to do next in their infrastructure, DataMiner has them well covered.”
