Sandvine Corporation, a provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, has received an initial order for over $1-million of Network Business Intelligence products from a multinational, Western European operator.
The initial order is for deployment in the fixed access network of a Western European country, where the operator has the market share. Sandvine currently expects to begin recognizing revenue related to the deployment in fiscal 2013.
As part of its business intelligence offerings, this operator purchased Sandvine's Network Analytics product and a series of dashboards including the Real-Time Entertainment Dashboard for video quality of experience management. Sandvine's interactive dashboards provide aggregate, network-wide key performance indicators that can be granularly measured and categorized by location, device and subscriber tier. Specific to this new customer, Sandvine's Real-Time Entertainment Dashboard provides quality metrics on streaming video such as duration, display characteristics and transport quality, the company reported.
"Video metrics are crucial to optimize subscriber quality of experience (QoE) and network performance," said Tom Donnelly, COO, Sales and Global Services, Sandvine. "Harnessing a holistic view of the application make-up including event-based, time-based and quality-based measurements of video, is the secret sauce in delivering QoE and retaining subscriber loyalty."
