Hellas Sat Signs On with Skyline Communications' DataMiner

The Hellas Sat Cyprus teleport.

Skyline Communications has recently added another satellite player to their extensive client list — the latest addition is Hellas Sat that offers services in Europe, the Middle East and Southern Africa. DataMiner will manage and control all of Hellas Sat’s uplinks and downlinks at their teleport in Cyprus.

Thomas Kalamaris, Technical Director at Hellas Sat, said as a major player in the satellite industry, it is vital for them to deliver high-quality services that answer the needs of all of the company's different customers. All the while keeping competitive prices, of course. 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 them stay in control of their operation, no matter which technologies or vendors they decide to implement in their business. After all, their business is one that constantly evolves. It wouldn’t make sense to go for a solution that fits them 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 them. Those are just some of the reasons why they went for Skyline’s DataMiner.

Marina Nikita, Sales Manager at Skyline Communication, noted that something Hellas Sat and Skyline have in common is that both companies are looking beyond today’s reality. Because that reality might be completely different tomorrow, an agile operation is key. In order for a leading satellite company to stay ahead of competitors and to keep their customers happy, they 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. 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.
