BISCit Selects Sandvine to Enhance Subscriber Quality of Experience
Mill Hill, UK and Waterloo, Canada; July 18, 2005 – Sandvine Incorporated, world leader in intelligent broadband management solutions for cable, DSL, wireless, and satellite providers, announced today that BISCit, one of UK’s top ISPs, has selected Sandvine to improve the integrity of its broadband network and ensure subscriber quality of experience (QoE).
Sandvine delivers the industry’s most scalable and comprehensive platform for the protection and guaranteed performance of broadband service providers’ networks. Sandvine’s award-winning solutions help broadband service providers better understand subscriber behavior, recognize and address network threats, classify applications, guarantee service levels and create profitable bundles for multiple broadband services.
Subscriber demands for new services and applications have driven ISPs to offer more than basic Internet access. To ensure subscriber satisfaction and remain competitive, ISPs must differentiate their services by delivering high-value applications like VoIP, gaming, and rich content with guaranteed quality of service (QoS).
London-based, BISCit deployed Sandvine’s intelligent broadband network management solution to meet the challenges of delivering new IP applications and subscriber demands.
“Our subscribers are our priority,” said Mike Edwards, CEO, BISCit Internet. “Sandvine’s network equipment helps us stay in tune with our subscribers’ latest Internet usage trends, so we can offer them valuable services and ensure better performance and quality of service.”
“The sophistication and evasiveness of new IP applications requires new network intelligence to cost-effectively monitor, identify, interpret, and analyze network traffic in real-time,” said Tom Donnelly, Sandvine executive vice president, marketing and sales. “Sandvine is proud to support BISCit’s growing network with this layer of network intelligence, so they can ensure the best performance and QoE for their subscribers.”
QUALITY OF EXPERIENCE (QoE)
QoE is a measure of end-to-end performance that combines reliability, standard quality of service metrics and subjective broadband subscriber experiences.
