Skyline Communications’ DataMiner platform has been selected by du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunication Company, to manage the new Al Qudra teleport in Dubai. 


Vandenberghe: “The future of our partnership looks even brighter”

The teleport facility is a response to the company’s continuing growth and features larger antennae and the latest technology infrastructure.

Saleem Alblooshi, chief technology officer at du, said: “At du, we remain steadfast in our commitment to innovate and invest so we continue to deliver world-class services and solutions to our customers. As industries continue to evolve, consumers’ demands regularly change, and new technologies frequently emerge. Therefore, innovating and investing are among our top priorities. In order to maintain standards and the highest level of quality across our entire scope of operations, investing in an end-to-end management platform for the Al Qudra site was a necessity. We are delighted to be continuing our association with Skyline Communications, and everyone under our umbrella welcomes the announcement that our new facility will be boosted by the capabilities of DataMiner.”

With DataMiner, Skyline Communications says that du now has a complete overview of its entire Al Qudra operation through just a single pane of glass. The project comprises the management of all the satellite uplink and downlink antennae, automatic redundancy switching, automatic spectrum monitoring across the up- and downlink carriers, the management of fibre links, and more.

Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications, said: “We’re very pleased du turned to us again for their new teleport site. From the project at Samacom, we already knew du has exceptionally high standards, and DataMiner has already proven there that our solutions live up to those. We understand and share their focus on enhancement like no other, which is why they also entrusted us with their new facility. And the future of our partnership looks even brighter, because there’s a possible further role for DataMiner to play if the Al Qudra teleport is expanded in the future.”
