Respond to the needs of your subscribers for a personalized, online experience

As simple Internet connectivity is commoditized and price pressures drive average revenue per user (ARPU) down, capital infrastructure costs remain constant. Meanwhile, subscribers demand personalized plans that reflect their network usage and ensure superior access to the applications they value most.

Amidst this rapidly-changing landscape of bandwidth commoditization, service providers must find a sustainable source of competitive advantage and a cost-effective means to combat this trend. Sandvine’s solutions enable the delivery of tiered and subscriber–initiated services to facilitate a seamless and accelerated entry into service differentiation.

Sandvine’s Service Creation product suite enables a host of offerings including:

Access Service Solutions

Bandwidth Tier Management enables the creation of customized broadband access service plans that can be defined by a number of individual network usage patterns such as:

  • time of day (peak vs. non-peak hours)
  • throughput (upload and download speed)
  • total bandwidth consumption

Usage Management

Usage Management Solutions incorporate volume, time, and event triggers per application, creating a multitude of options for pre and post-paid rate plans. The solution supports online and offline charging and integrates with leading billing and mediation systems. Sandvine solutions provide subscribers visibility of their usage with real-time Advice of Charge notifications.

On-Demand Services

As part of a broad tiered strategy, On-Demand Services enable instant, subscriber-controlled access to content-rich services. Sandvine solutions like Bandwidth On-Demand and Upgrade Preview enable higher quality of experience (QoE) by offering an improved delivery of applications that are most valued.

Advanced Services

Advanced Services ensure optimal quality of service (QoS) for next-generation rich- content and application services. Preferred content and applications such as social networking, gaming, video streaming VoIP and photo uploads can have differentiated service levels within a tiered service portfolio. Sandvine’s Advanced Services can be seamlessly bundled within premium tiers to create highly flexible and personalized service menus to maximize both subscriber choice and QoE.
