Belintersat Selects Controlsat from Integrasys to ensure SLA compliance and a High Quality Interference Free Service

Madrid, Spain, 11th June 2018 – Integrasys, leading manufacturer of Carrier Monitoring Systems has provided Belintersat, the Belarus Satellite Operator with its Controlsat Carrier Monitoring System to deliver a high quality and interference free service. With Integrasys’ Controlsat Carrier Monitoring System, Belintersat is able to monitor up to 200 carriers per second. As well as this, the service offers unmanned operation 24/7 with interference detection, automatic SLAs compliance and reports and data analysis. All of which are crucial to maintaining a high quality service. Upon detection of service degradation or interference, Controlsat alerts operators, meaning any issues can be resolved immediately. Reliable QoS analysis and plots ensure the upmost QoS and SLAs compliance. Alexander Armonik, Head of Ground Applications Service Center, Belintersat, commented: “Our operations have been growing over recent years. That growth, coupled with international expansion means that it is more important than ever to be able to effectively monitor and control the entire network. Controlsat gives us peace of mind and the assurance that we can provide a continuous and good quality service to all of our customers.” For this implementation, Controlsat has been customised to address Belintersat’s unique requirements. This includes enhancements to the solution’s data collection and reporting functionality. It has also been integrated with a spectrum analyser from Keysight. Alvaro Sanchez, General Manager, Integrasys, commented: “Belintersat is a forward-thinking operator with a focus on enhancing the quality of experience for its customers and differentiating itself from the competition. For us, it was important to also be integrated with a high quality spectrum analyser. Having worked with Keysight’s products in the past, we knew it could support us ensure the fast rate of measurement and high accuracy our customers demand.” The N9000B is the newest X series analyser that, with the unique Ku switching matrix manufactured by Integrasys, achieves unmatched performances and measurement speeds of up to 200 carrier per second. Julian Arribas, Account Manager, Keysight added: “As satellite operators face increasing pressure to deliver a seamless experience, detecting and reducing errors is more important than ever. Thanks to the combination of Controlsat and our spectrum analyser, Belintersat is able to deliver a great experience for its customers.” About Integrasys Founded in 1990 by Hewlett Packard engineers, Integrasys specialises in providing satellite spectrum monitoring systems for the satellite, telecommunication, and broadcast markets.

CommunicAsia 2018 , 26th – 28th June, Singapore

Inspired by the radical changes in the ICT industry, the refreshed CommunicAsia continues to be Asia’s most established and relevant event for industry professionals in the telecommunications sector. Find out more here. IRG Technology Tour at CommunicAsia 2018    At this year’s CommunicAsia IRG will once again hold a technology tour, this time focusing on innovation. One of the primary aims of IRG is inspiring innovation, in the form of solutions, tools, and processes, which in turn reduce errors and improve efficiency. Over recent years, there have been a great deal of new innovations spearheaded by many of the group’s members, which are having a significant positive impact on satellite communications. That’s why during this year’s tour participants will learn about new innovations from a cross-section of the industry. This includes new products and tools being developed by the technology vendors, but it will also showcase how operators are using new innovative processes to improve efficiency and reduce errors across their networks. The tour will also look at future innovations, with experts on hand to talk about how new techniques such as machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) will further improve the industry in the near and longterm future. The tour is led by Martin Coleman, Executive Director, the Satellite Interference Reduction Group and independent consultant with more than 40 years’ experience in the satellite industry. On each stand, he will be joined by an expert from that company able to give an in-depth view of current and future innovation.
