Sandvine (News - Alert), a provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, has received over $3 million in follow-up orders from a North American cable operator.
Officials with Sandvine said that the orders were received in March and represent ongoing expansion of the operator's deployment of business intelligence and traffic optimization solutions.
Company officials pointed out that as part of the Business Intelligence suite, Sandvine's Network Analytics product enables sophisticated analysis that empowers confident decisions through network-wide visibility.
As part of the traffic optimization suite, Sandvine's Traffic Management product manages inherent competition for network resources so that the best QoE is maintained for the maximum number of subscribers over the maximum period of time.
Network Analytics, one of Sandvine's Business Intelligence products, forecasts long-term trends in consumer experience and resource utilization so that operators can proactively decide where to allocate resources and spending. Sandvine's Fairshare Traffic Management product uses network data to apply business rules that protect subscribers' quality of experience under all network conditions.
"The strength and longevity of the relationships with our cable customers is attributable to ongoing product innovation that reflects more than a decade of experience working with top MSOs. As the cable market and Internet usage have evolved, we have continued to deepen the insight we offer into network traffic and enhance the flexibility of policies for improving the subscriber experience," said Tom Donnelly , COO, sales and global services, Sandvine, in a statement.
Earlier this month, Sandvine announced that it has received network policy control expansion orders from TDS Telecommunications Corp. (TDS Telecom), one of the top 10 telecom providers in the United States.
TDS Telecom, an incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC), most recently deployed Sandvine’s Fairshare Traffic Management and Business Intelligence products, as announced in 2012.
