With a fleet of 16 satellites and the only provider of multichannel pay-TV broadcasting in Japan, Asian satellite operator Sky Perfect JSAT has selected Satmotion, Integrasys’ auto commissioning tool, to succeed in CPI (Cross Polarization Isolation) tests for JSAT’s Indonesian customer’s VSAT network.
Sky Perfect JSAT has decided to utilise the Satmotion tool in order to ensure that the customer can use its satellite network correctly, in a more optimised way, and comply with the SLAs (Service Level Agreement). For the satellite operator, the advantage of using Satmotion is the reduced workload for operators and their customers, the company said.
By measuring Copol and Xpol and feeding back the results to the customer with an intuitive interface they can understand without being satellite communications experts, Satmotion is able to simplify the LineUp process as much as possible, ensuring quality and interference-free transmissions. Integrasys has worked with the technical team to adapt the tool to its particular needs.
Commenting on the deal, Tomoaki Fujihara, Network Operations Division, Sky Perfect JSAT, said: “By using Satmotion, it is possible to perform CPI test by our customer alone. Usually, the CPI test is conducted through direct communication with operators by phone or chat. For customers who own many VSAT, CPI test is performed frequently. And if operators are busy, they may keep customers waiting. Therefore, by using Satmotion, the customer conducts CPI test themselves, which allows the customer to test at any time they want and reduces our operator’s workload.”
Alvaro Sanchez, CEO of Integrasys, added: “Having customers like Sky Perfect JSAT in Asia, is a pleasure for us, as we have been able to improve Satmotion, as well as learn more about the APAC region needs, and the great capabilities that our tool can provide the end user with. Working with Sky Perfect JSAT, has been continuous learning for us. Even though Satmotion was created to serve the broadcast industry, we have been able to adapt the tool to make accurate CPI tests without depending on any particular platform. The experience of contributing to this project has added an additional value not only to our tool but also to our technical team, which has been involved and has been able to make the most out of our product.”
