WOW turns to ChanneLogics
Upstart competitive cabler WideOpenWest is looking to monitor and manage traffic on its data-over-cable network, and is turning to ChanneLogics to make it happen.
WOW offers its customers a slew of services, including high-speed Internet access, digital cable TV and broadband telephone services. The company intends to add other advanced services, such as on-demand content delivery. ChanneLogics' CableLogics bandwidth management product will enable WOW to better manage its network as it adds more services and signs up more customers.
WideOpenWest has rolled out service in Denver, but is planning for future rollouts in Detroit, Chicago, Columbus and Cleveland, using the americast cable systems it purchased from SBC Communications Inc.
ChanneLogics' tools enable operators to calculate actual and anticipated bandwidth usage patterns by subscriber, blade, CMTS and interface.
