Duluth, GA — September 13, 2019 — DataPath, Inc., a leading provider of advanced and secure communications solutions, announced today the integration of the DataPath MaxView® EnterpriseTM Network Management Software (NMS) with the Optimal Satcom® Enterprise Capacity Manager® (ECMTM). The combined solution automates the planning and configuration of satellite capacity and ground networks. The initial integration was delivered to a satellite network service provider where service uptime is the top-most priority.
The Optimal Satcom ECM system allows satellite operators and service providers to plan and schedule the use of available satellite capacity. ECM assists in identifying available owned or leased capacity, designing and optimizing networks, establishing link budgets, generating transmission plans with carrier and terminal technical parameters, assigning power and bandwidth resources for the carriers, and optimizing their performance. Once these plans are finalized, they are provided to operations for execution.
MaxView Enterprise from DataPath is a powerful solution that enables operators to see the state of their entire network, control multi-vendor devices, automate complex service tasks, and unify disparate systems into one common operating view.
“This integration of capabilities allowed for our customer to efficiently plan, configure, and execute service missions,” said Brad Majeres, Chief Operating Officer at DataPath. “The collaboration between the ECM and MaxView tools highlights the value in providing extensible solutions to directly address a customer’s challenge.
“The ECM system is used by satellite operators, major satellite service providers, and government organizations worldwide to plan and manage satellite networks, said Ahsun H. Murad, President/CEO and cofounder of Optimal Satcom. “Integration with DataPath’s MaxView system automates the commissioning and decommissioning of carriers. The integration of two market leading products, ECM and MaxView, allows our customers to greatly simplify the planning, management, staging and provisioning of their services, especially for complex dynamic networks.”
Majeres added, “Automating the execution of transmission plans allows operators to focus more time on the service management. Operators can quickly react to equipment or service-level warnings before they impact their customers service. Exceeding the service level agreements is a win for the service provider and their customers.”
