OpenVault has been named a finalist in the 2016 Cablefax Tech Awards for the category of New Product Award – Software. The Tech Awards recognize industry innovation and honor the forward thinking gurus who continue to revolutionize the industry’s technology with their amazing products, campaigns and partnerships. As a finalist, OpenVault was selected for its innovation to Monetize HSD Networks with Innovative and First-Ever Multipurpose Cloud-based Solutions.
In this way and as the leading provider of broadband management and industry analytics, OpenVault’s cloud-based, easy-to-use tools are designed to bring network, finance and marketing data together in a powerful way. As a standard of service for cost efficient solutions, OpenVault provides broadband provider environments with the data, tools and solutions to help them achieve transformative success.
As the only completely independent telecommunications provider in Cyprus, Cablenet is one of the fastest-growing, privately-held telecommunications companies in the Mediterranean. In order to help better manage this rapid market expansion and ensure subscriber access and appropriate usage models, Cablenet was seeking an efficient solution for delivering the best quality service to its high-speed data (HSD) customers. Ultimately, with the explosion of global data growth, Cablenet was looking to not only manage congestion but also create a fair-use environment for their HSD subscribers.
To this end, OpenVault worked with Cablenet to create a customized, cloud-based platform that includes easy-to-use tools that does not require hardware, sophisticated policy servers or in-house expertise. In fact, by deploying a cloud-based solution, Cablenet was able to quickly, and cost-effectively, better understand their subscriber usage behaviors and make the necessary adjustments without any disruption in service. In essence, the OpenVault platform enabled Cablenet to manage their high-speed data services while extending the life of their network investments which helps to compensate for the unreimbursed increase in OTT traffic and the loss of premium video subscriptions.
