What could you do to improve capacity planning decisions on your network? Too many cable operators are led into a cycle of never-ending upgrades by poor insights and a lack of actionable intelligence. Without an understanding of how and where bandwidth is used on your network, it is difficult to make smart network investments and capacity planning decisions.
As the broadband market matures, unlimited data plans represent both a high cost and a lost revenue opportunity for network service providers.
DOCSIS 3.1 promises 10x capacity throughput and a range of technical benefits for cable providers and users alike. Examine the advantages, the hurdles to implementation, and what you need to consider to prepare your network for a DOCSIS upgrade in this complimentary white paper.
In a recent Dell report on Big Data, 89% of respondents with a Big Data initiative in progress reported significant improvements in their company’s decision making. This white paper examines the benefits of accurate automated Big Data intelligence solutions and explores the differences offered by the two main stream methods for Big Data collection, Internet Protocol Detail Record (IPDR) and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI).
Cable MSOs face shrinking margins and higher network upkeep costs as more subscribers shift to IP-only plans. This white paper details the case for fair access policies – including usage-based pricing – in the cable broadband industry. The major challenges, benefits, and best practices of policy enforcement are examined, with a focus on examples from the North American market.
The surge in global Internet traffic is stressing broadband networks. In this environment, more multiple service operators (MSOs) are turning to Internet Protocol Detail Record (IPDR) to manage their high-speed data platforms and businesses. Enhanced features and back office integration can make an IPDR system even more effective by providing network intelligence for capacity planning, customer support, and new service rollouts.
Part one of your three-part guide for implementing, integrating, and activating fiber services as part of a converged network.
It can be difficult for service providers to measure an individual subscriber’s quality of experience (QoE) using only macro network statistics. To meet this challenge, you need service delivery intelligence from the network edge, generated from inside the customer premises.
For years, service providers have been focused on expanding their pipe to keep up with the growing bandwidth requirements of their subscribers. Showing no signs of decelerating, global IP traffic is expected to grow three-fold between 2013 and 2018. Incognito Bandwidth Activity Reporter is a congestion management and policy enforcement solution that utilizes IPDR data to facilitate better network planning, orchestrate speed reduction policies or utilization quotas, and aid in the identification of users that are disposed to upgrades.
