Integral to Provide Network Managing System to Vinasat
[Satellite Today 09-15-08] Integral Systems Europe delivered and installed a fully-integrated carrier signal monitoring, transponder planning, and network management system for the Vinasat satellite program, Integral said Sept. 15.
The system, according to Integral, will be part of a network operations center to be provided by SES Astra TechCom to Vietnam Telecom International in Hanoi, Vietnam. The system reportedly includes products from Integral’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, SAT Corp. and Newpoint Technologies.
Consisting of SAT Corp.’s Monics carrier monitoring and interference detection system for Ku- and C-band beams, Newpoint’s compass network management system, and a transponder management system from Optimal Satcom, Integral said the system will be integrated by SES Astra with antenna, RF systems, and other network operations and monitoring elements.
Integral has had success with the system on previous programs such as Thuraya, HellasSat, Rascom, and Thor.
