Sunrise partners with Skyline
January 26, 2023
Skyline Communications, a provider of end-to-end vendor- and domain-agnostic digital transformation solutions for the ICT media and broadband industry, has announced that Sunrise, the largest private telecommunications company in Switzerland, has selected Skyline’s DataMiner platform for the fully automated provisioning of their latest generation of CIN and Remote PHY Nodes.
These nodes form the outer edge of the company’s new Distributed Access Architecture and are directly attached to their Converged Interconnect Network (CIN). As such, they are crucial components in Sunrise’s migration towards a software-defined network approach, currently serving part of their residential and business customers. Many of these nodes will gradually be implemented, so it is crucial for Sunrise to set up a platform that can eliminate potential human errors. With DataMiner, they will be able to fully integrate and automate provisioning workflows using templates that are tested up front for correctness, compatibility, and compliance with security rulings.
“We trusted Skyline to deliver us the required portfolio of workflows with DataMiner’s Process Automation engine – and that’s working as expected. It was the platform’s open architecture, enabling its integration in our existing OSS platform, and the ability for our team to maintain and customize the different workflows which made the difference for us. We are also grateful for Skyline’s expertise and valuable contributions during the entire project, from the workflow identification phase, across the definition of the different templates, all the way up to the testing phase,” said Daniel Hürlimann, Head of Access Network DevOps & Design at Sunrise LLC.
“DataMiner has been able to support the team’s commitment to service excellence for many years already, and we are both honored and grateful to now also get this extended role that will allow us to facilitate this important transformation for Sunrise LLC,” said Dominique De Paepe, Market Director Service Provider at Skyline. “It’s also a real pleasure to team up with a company that is so passionate about fulfilling their customer commitment. Their mission to communicate better and work smarter, perfectly exemplified through this project, was what triggered them to rethink all workflows and accept nothing less than a fully integrated process.
