EchoStar has chosen ScheduALL for management of its occasional-use and full-time satellite service scheduling. The software will be used to optimize and manage the transmission resources of EchoStar's Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) business.
Occasional-use satellite service allows customers to lease fractional transponders on a part-time basis, for delivering breaking news stories, planned events or regularly scheduled recurring events. To manage this service, EchoStar is implementing the ScheduLINK resource management solution for satellite transmission operations for TV broadcasters, cable networks, mobile uplink providers, news organizations and satellite service resellers. ScheduLINK incorporates graphical path management for control of transmission path resources and conflict checking of resource availability, bandwidth and technical mismatches.
