Although HTS brings undisputed advantages, it also brings new operating paradigms that add complexity and challenges to managing network operations. Kratos has enhanced its product line to handle the scalable, distributed, dynamic and service oriented nature of HTS environments.
With the growth of the mobility market for HTS systems, managing the signal layer of a satellite network has become even more challenging. Operators need increased visibility to quickly identify and respond to issues caused by a rapidly changing environment. This requires cost-effective sensors with low data requirements and a central processing capability that can manage the sensors, correlate the data from the sensors, and display that information in an effective way.
The Monics® Series 200™ product provides cost effective sensors for spot beam monitoring, while Monics Enterprise Manager™ can be layered on top of your monitoring system to give your operations team the visualization and automation tools to cost effectively manage HTS and other satellite beams, as well as all the sensors, in a single integrated user interface.
With the increase in the number of customers on HTS satellites and the associated infrastructure to deliver their services, there is a critical need to be able to understand and manage the network operations to ensure customers’ SLA requirements are achieved. Kratos provides a scalable end-to-end network management solution for HTS environments.
The solution is unified by NeuralStar® Service Quality Manager (SQM) which tracks customer services against SLA requirements, and integrates with existing Kratos or third party network management solutions, ground M&C tools, and even your signal monitoring system, for true end-to-end management. The solution automates NOC operations, optimizes network performance and tracks customer services and SLAs.
Each Kratos product is available as a standalone solution for discrete management tasks, and together they operate as a unified end-to-end management solution for HTS environments.
