2 Aug 2017

Sky Brasil Servicos (Sky Brazil), the satellite TV giant-turned-4G operator, has enlisted local vendor Bwtech to implement an end-to-end optimisation solution covering its time division duplex LTE (TD-LTE) network. On a single ‘NetChart’ platform, Sky engineers can now monitor all network elements, from the access part and backhaul, to core elements; all types of equipment from different vendors are monitored through a single flexible interface.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Sky operates TD-LTE networks in 23 of the country’s 26 states – and the Distrito Federal – and claimed a total of 330,993 subscribers at 31 March 2017, alongside 5.588 million pay-TV subscribers.
