Qatar Media Corp taps Skyline for NMS/OSS

Qatar Media Corporation (QMC), the official broadcasting authority for the state of Qatar, has tapped Skyline Communications to provide its DataMiner network management system/OSS platform to manage the group’s current broadcast network, spanning different technologies such as AM, FM, DAB+, DVB-T2, UHF and VHF across transmission sites in Doha, Khissa, Shahanyia and Arish.

Skyline said that the management role that DataMiner takes at QMC’s operation is meant as the first step of a larger project. In time, the intention is to extend the scope to multiple other business units of QMC.

“At Qatar Media Corporation, we always keep up with the latest trends and evolutions in the media industry. That’s easier said than done due to the incredibly fast pace of developments and the increasing complexity of our infrastructure. A next-generation management and orchestration platform is therefore an absolute must to ensure a future-proof and flexible operation, and DataMiner offers the best solutions on the market to give us that guarantee,” said Mohammed Abdulaziz Ali Ibrahim Al-Emadi at QMC.

“With DataMiner in place, QMC is ensured to live up to their viewers’ high expectations. It’s becoming common knowledge in the broadcast and media industry that we deeply integrated innovative AI-powered technology into DataMiner. As such, the platform enables QMC to keep on delivering high service quality to the consumer, no matter how complex their ecosystem is or will become. And that’s invaluable in this modern and fast-changing world. Viewers don’t expect to be hindered by sudden errors or service failures anymore. It’s so important that operators are able to resolve issues before they even occur. And thanks to DataMiner, they can,” said Glenn D’Haene, sales director for the EMEA and APAC region at Skyline Communications.
