Buckeye set to upgrade provisioning for IPv6
Buckeye CableSystem is preparing to upgrade its installed provisioning system.
The company uses Incognito Software’s Broadband Command Center to activate and provision voice and data services for its approximately 130,000 subscribers.
Buckeye will upgrade to the latest version of Broadband Command Center, which provides scalable device provisioning. With the upgrade, Buckeye will be able to quickly add and maintain users on its network, while also streamlining workflow to prepare for its implementation and migration to IPv6.
The product is a multi-standard solution that offers fast, reliable and scalable device provisioning while also providing support for the latest standards and technologies, including TR-069, DOCSIS 3.0, PacketCable 2.0, SIP, and DHCPv6, according to Incognito.
Buckeye CableSystem has been using provisioning products from Incognito Software since 2005.
“We are constantly striving to enhance the customer experience for our subscribers, and being able to efficiently provision our services and quickly add new ones in a way that is both cost-effective and reliable is something that we consider critical to this effort,” said Joe Jensen, chief technology officer for Buckeye CableSystem. “The added knowledge that Broadband Command Center from Incognito Software will work in conjunction with our existing IP address management software to help us prepare for our migration from IPv4 to IPv6 will be tremendously helpful as well.”
As Buckeye CableSystem transitions its network to the IPv6 protocol, it expects to gain the network capacity needed to add a nearly limitless number of subscriber devices while also taking advantage of easier deployment of new solutions, additional encryption and security measures, improved network routing procedures, and enhanced compliance capabilities for various government regulations. It will also help to prepare Buckeye for the future, as an increasing number of new services will soon be launched that require IPv6.
