Intelsat General Corp. Selects Crystal Solutions BMC Carrier Monitoring and Recording Software

Crystal Solutions has been selected by Intelsat General Corporation to provide its Sentry™ BMC (Bandwidth Management Center) software for worldwide deployment.


Crystal’s new Sentry™ BMC product incorporates two existing Crystal products: Sentry™ Spectrum Monitor and Recording solution and Crystal's Monitor and Control (M&C) system. Sentry™ BMC can be tailored to fulfill bandwidth monitoring needs such as US Government FCSA (Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition) contracts and can be integrated with payload monitoring and antenna control systems.


Kay Sears, President of Intelsat General Corporation, said, “Intelsat General Corporation selected Crystal’s carrier monitoring system based on its ability to import data directly from our link budget calculation tools. This feature saves time and meets the requirements of our FCSA customers. In addition, the Crystal software is a distributed system so it can grow as our customer base grows and it’s based on an open-standards database which will make it easy to integrate to our other control systems.”


Roger Franklin, President and CEO of Crystal Solutions, added, “We’re very pleased to have our Sentry BMC solution chosen by Intelsat General Corp and look forward to supporting their dynamic carrier management needs. We are confident Sentry™ BMC is the right solution for Intelsat General’s requirements. Intelsat needed a partner in this arena with the agility and willingness to tailor a solution to their needs as they evolve. Crystal’s organization is engineered top to bottom to do just that; it’s how we build and have maintained M&C systems for decades.“
