Active Broadband Networks Demonstrates First Application Based Upon DOCSIS® 3.0 IP Detail Records at CableLabs Winter Conference


Waltham, MA February 3, 2010 – Active Broadband Networks, a leading development of Subscriber Service and Network Management Systems based upon the emerging IPDR standards will demonstrate the first DOCSIS® 3.0 IPDR collector and the first application using the new DOCSIS® 3.0 IPDR capabilities called the Subscriber Experience Manager.

“Our team is working hard to lead in the development of DOCSIS® 3.0 IPDR solutions for Cable Operators”, said Adam Dunstan, President of Active Broadband Networks. “With leading CMTS vendors providing DOCSIS 3.0 IPDR capabilities during 2010, operators can finally address the problems caused by SNMP and leverage these new capabilities with applications like the Subscriber Experience Manager”.

Active Broadband Networks will demonstrate a beta version of the Active Resource Manager Subscriber Experience Manager at the CableLabs® Winter Conference. The Subscriber Experience Manage leverages new information provided by IPDR to profile network conditions and Subscriber usage identifying periods where Subscriber Experience is impacted. The Subscriber Experience Manager then computes Experience in the form of bandwidth supplied, demand served and interface delay. The Subscriber Experience Manager offers increased visibility into the impact of network congestion to manage customer satisfaction and network capacity.

Active Broadband Networks is also announcing the availability of Active Resource Manager Release 4.2. This release adds new Business Intelligence style dashboards and reporting, a web services interface with over 60 queries that can be used to integrate accurate IPDR information with existing operational applications and updated system management capabilities including a new Command Line Interface. Release 4.2 is available immediately.
