As streaming increases in a household, bandwidth management becomes more and more important. Beyond bandwidth meters, ISPs can consider offering prepaid broadband or bandwidth-on-demand, but that’s going to take some serious data. Enter OpenVault with its independently audited solution for broadband data traffic collection. Its master agreement with NCTC has helped it snag deals recently with several co-op members, including Shenandoah Telecom, BCI Broadband, Antietam Cable, Advanced Cable and Ritter Communications.
“We will be able to make more informed business decisions at every stage, from product definitions and concepts, to improving traffic management and network planning. Access to better information will help drive higher revenues and lower costs,” David Adams, COO of Ritter Communications, said in statement.
Shentel inked a three-year deal that has it using OpenVault’s cloud-based suite. It won’t just be analyzing the data itself, but also providing info to its customers, giving them real-time feedback on Internet usage and recommendations of packages that will provide a better value for the money. The OpenVault Suite allows subscribers to try out faster services without disrupting the provisioning and billing processes.
