The network, reaching over 120 million people, consists of more than 5,000 digital transmitter sites and 70 regional headends, and DataMiner is integrated with over 4,000 devices from almost 500 different vendors.
Commenting on the deployment, Victor Pinchuk, first deputy general director at RTRS, said “The multi-vendor DataMiner network management and operational support system has been instrumental to our procurement strategy, since we needed an end-to-end network management solution to manage and operate the network irrespective of vendor or device type in the network. DataMiner is the only solution on the market that does the job today and guarantees our freedom to deploy just about any technology in our network in the future”.
Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications, added: “The RTRS network really benefits from the DataMiner system architecture, as it can be scaled to manage and operate both small networks and the world’s largest network infrastructures. The multi-vendor nature of our system allows RTRS to deploy the best suited equipment today and in the future”.
AMT Group will be acting as a system integrator of the project. Its CEO Alexander Goltsov said that it would be using the latest product version, DataMiner 9.0, which will be installed for the first time in Russia.
As previously reported in Broadband TV News, Russia completed the transition to DVB-T2 in January this year.
