Announces iSurfRanger for Broadband Service today announced iSurfRanger for
Broadband Service, an end-to-end broadband access service management solution
for carriers, service providers and enterprises.’s new iSurfRanger solution provides automatic and dynamic
provisioning, which will allow a network service provider to reduce service order costs,
improve customer service and offer value added services.

“One of the major advantages of broadband is that it offers a large access
pipe that enables a huge amount of information to be transmitted,” said Roger
Brown, Editor-in-Chief of Communications Engineering & Design (CED) magazine.

“Cable and broadband wireless networks offer ‘fat’ pipes that can bog down
when shared by many subscribers without being segmented into smaller nodes.
At the aggregation point, DSL bandwidth also becomes shared. Therefore,
utilization and prioritization of the usage of this broadband pipe must be
carefully and efficiently managed in order to accommodate the maximum number
of users.”

Key capabilities of iSurfRanger include:

  • Automatic subscriber provisioning — allows a service provider to
    provision the bandwidth through the service order process rather
    than a manual process by the network administrator

  • Guaranteed class of service to each subscriber — allows a
    service provider to offer individual level policy sets for each
    subscriber (up to 20,000 users per iSurfRanger) that enforce
    Committed Information Rates and Maximum Burst Rates for inbound
    and outbound traffic

  • Usage billing — renders individual subscriber bills and imports
    bill face information into customer care platforms

List price is $15,990, available here.
