Norkring, part of the Telenor Broadcast holding and a leading provider of broadcasting services in Norway, has rolled out Skyline’s DataMiner NMS/OSS platform for the end-to-end management of its entire operation.

Norkring offers a wide range of services, including DTT and DAB, along with tailored video contribution services and IP connectivity solutions. DataMiner spans across all Norkring’s operational platforms, providing a single pane of glass to manage and control every single active component and each of the many thousands of services.

The solution comprises 24 DataMiner virtual compute nodes, forming a single consolidated and highly available DataMiner System that collects data around the clock from over 16000 network and processing products and more than 1000 physical locations spread across a vast territory. This includes products and systems of more than 130 different types and brands and with a wide variety of protocol interfaces, including both industry-standard interfaces and vendor-specific interfaces.

The enormous amount of continuously collected operational data is processed by DataMiner in real time for sophisticated fault and performance management. DataMiner Service Management provides on-the-fly translation into actual service impact information, by mapping the data dynamically on more than 5000 services running across all of the platforms. The solution provides the team of over 20 operators with an instant end-to-end service-oriented perspective on their entire operation, transparently across any vendor and technology boundaries.

Inge Fagerbakke, COO and Operations Director, Norkring
At Norkring, we operate one of the largest networks in Europe. Just to give you an idea of what I’m talking about: our operators have to watch over 1294 DAB stations, 2542 DTT station services, over 1000 contribution station services, more than 1000 IP communication links connecting critical services (for mobile network backbones, for example), and much more. 

Ben Vandenberghe, CEO, Skyline Communications
It was a perfect opportunity for us to leverage and showcase a wide range of the exclusive features and capabilities of our end-to-end multi-vendor DataMiner network management platform.
