What are the challenges service providers face?

In today's high-growth broadband market where service providers are looking to expand their broadband footprint and offer new services in the face of fierce competition, the ability to effectively manage CPE devices remotely is vital to help reduce the costs associated with the activation and support of broadband services, improve time-to-market for new products and services, and deliver a quality broadband experience to customers.

Dealing with legacy device management systems

Using legacy network management platforms for tracking and managing CPE devices in the network will no longer suffice if service providers want to improve operational efficiency and profitability, especially when it comes to customer care and network operations departments to limit technical escalations, truck rolls, and long repair times for network problems.

What's needed for success?

Service providers require a scalable and robust remote device management platform to support the automated lifecycle management of CPE devices across multiple access networks and enable new digital channels for customer care, network operations, and subscribers to manage the broadband experience from a single platform.
