Overview

Service providers often have deployed an extensive network of satellite receivers and are then faced with the daunting task of having to upgrade and reconfigure receivers already deployed and operational in a network. From satellite providers shuffling segment allocations that require new frequency assignment  programming to network operators changing the carrier symbol rates to accommodate additional bandwidth, it is sometimes necessary to re-program carrier parameters for each receiver. Net Manager helps operators address these challenges. 

Net Manager is IDC’s next generation network management system designed to work with IDC’s portfolio of audio, video and data products. Featuring a Web-based GUI for operator-friendly local and/or remote operation, this robust system supports multiple languages. Delivered on a highly integrated hardware/software platform.

With the ability to interface and control individual receivers, groups of receivers and entire networks via the satellite link, Net Manager securely maintains configuration information for each receiver. The audio, data and control outputs of SuperFlex® Pro Series™ Receivers, as well as their receive frequencies and  demultiplexor parameters can be administered by Net Manager remotely.
