Sandvine Unlocks New Revenue Streams For CSPs With Mobile Data Management For Business Customers

Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller can now view, control, and protect mobile data

Waterloo, ON; February 14, 2017 – Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced the launch of mobile data management features for its Cloud Services Policy Controller. These new features help the business customers of communications service providers to better understand, manage, and secure their employees’ domestic and international mobile data usage.

Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller delivers powerful mobile data management through a virtualized platform and web-based, mobile-optimized portal. With these capabilities, IT managers can eliminate bill shock, increase employee productivity, and strengthen mobile security through a number of unique features, including:

  • Real-Time Geolocation: View the real-time location of domestic and roaming users on an interactive map
  • Application Management and Roaming Zone Control: Create data usage policies that allow the business to automatically block or rate-limit individual applications (i.e., Netflix or YouTube) and traffic categories (i.e. Real-Time Entertainment or Social Networking) during specific times of day, or when roaming
  • User Notifications and Configurable Data Thresholds: Send usage notifications or roaming alerts to users based on configurable data thresholds for domestic Internet usage, intranet usage, and data roaming

Sandvine's Cloud Services Policy Controller is a fully cloud-based, application-aware solution that is delivered to businesses as-a-service from their existing CSP, managed service provider, or system integrator. Residential subscriber growth is slowing or stalled for CSPs in many markets, but growth in business services is booming. Cloud Services Policy Controller lets CSPs differentiate business offerings to attract new customers and increase loyalty.

“Unexpected costs, often caused by roaming usage or exceeding monthly data quotas is a major pain point for any IT manager in charge of mobile services and devices, particularly as bring your own device (BYOD) raises in popularity,” said Don Bowman, CTO, Sandvine. “The mobile data management capabilities of Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller allows CSPs to generate new revenue by giving their business customers fine-grained application-level control over their mobile data usage so that they can better manage their costs.”
