Allot adds sub management component
Allot Communications has enhanced its deep packet inspection system with a new Subscriber Management Platform (SMP) that the company claims will enable operators to view customer bandwidth trends and to provision new services.
The new component monitors subscriber behavior to identify, track and report usage trends, which, in turn, can be analyzed to determine what services are resonating with customers. That, Allot says, will enable service providers to quickly roll out new services or service packages based on subscriber demand.
The SMP is also designed to handle enforcement on a per-subscriber basis, allowing for quality-controlled tiered services.
"Service providers can no longer treat their customers as one large group. Today's subscribers have individual needs and want customized services based on how they use Internet applications," said Rami Hadar, Allot's president and CEO.
Separately, Allot announced that SINA, an online media company and information provider for China, is monitoring and analyzing traffic using the vendor's NetEnforcer system.
