DataPath, a provider of satellite and wireless communications networks, has formed a partnership with French company Metracom to provide sales and integration support for the MaxView network management system in Europe.
Metracom specializes in engineering and system integration, technical assistance, training and consulting services in support of satellite communications. The companies are targeting sales of the MaxView software product line to the European government, broadcast and satellite operator market segments.
DataPath claims that its MaxView solution is used by broadcasters, satellite operators and media providers, which adapts to evolving networks, functioning as the network operating environment, the network manager-of-managers, or an element control-and-automation system. Designed by network engineers for network engineers, MaxView’s intuitive Service Creation Framework enables it to be operated without any software development experience.
Steve Lindeman, vice president of business operations at DataPath, said: Metracom has successfully fielded DataPath’s MaxView software for a number of commercial and government customers in France and around the world. They are a proven integration partner that has the staff and training to design, install and support MaxView products for even the most complex deployments. Metracom provides exceptional support and service to customers, giving DataPath greater reach in the European market.
Henri Wuthrich, director of sales and marketing at Metracom, said: Metracom has been successfully reselling MaxView products in France and Africa for about 10 years. MaxView enables our customers to remotely monitor and control teleports, VSAT networks and TV head-ends. This strengthened partnership with DataPath supports our plan to extend our MaxView integration and support services throughout Europe.
