BroadHop and CommProve Team to Deliver Industry's First End-to-End Intelligent Application and Subscriber RAN Congestion Management

Interoperability Offers Best of Breed, Independent Solution for NextGen Network Challenges and Enhanced Subscriber QoE

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - Mobile World Congress -- BroadHop, Inc., the network intelligence experts for service providers, and CommProve, the top innovation provider of network monitoring and business solutions for mobile networks today announced interoperability of their independent, best of breed solutions. BroadHop's advanced next gen policy management platform, the Quantum Network Suite and CommProve's RAN Insight, the state of the art application designed to dramatically improve radio optimization, will deliver the industry's first intelligent end-to-end application and subscriber Radio Access Network (RAN) Congestion Management solution enabling service providers to apply radio policies based on subscriber service level and the application being used.

Both BroadHop and CommProve have realized increased interest and traction with several major operator groups worldwide as service providers look for alternate solutions that provide them with network intelligence and real-time policy management capabilities to prioritize network resources and stay ahead of data traffic spikes which threaten subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE) and application Quality of Service (QoS) and drive up CapEx.

The combined BroadHop and CommProve offering manages localized RAN congestion, maintaining the best quality of experience during congested periods to:

  • Apply targeted policies to intelligently manage subscriber, application, bandwidth usage and prioritize traffic based on subscriber plan, application, device type, location, etc.
  • Ensure fair access for all subscribers during network congestion periods.
  • Accurately track subscriber cell location to enforce policies only for devices active in a congested area without the need for additional location updates to be provided from the network.
  • Pinpoint top users and the specific application that is contributing to the cell congestion event so that intelligent policy decisions can be made to determine to whom and if an action should be taken.
  • Enable congestion event reporting to contribute to subscriber analytics, real time notifications, and feedback to customer service.

"Continually adding radio capacity isn't economically viable and doesn't address the volatile nature of today's data traffic," said Bill Diotte, CEO and President, BroadHop, Inc. "Quantum Network Suite's high performance and massively scalable policy platform, was developed to deliver personalized subscriber-based services and innovative applications. Coupled with CommProve's RAN Insight application, which adds active RAN congestion management, service providers can now apply radio policies based on subscriber service level and the application being used. The net result is an immediately enhanced user experience, optimized radio resources and delayed RAN CAPEX investment."

"Most QoE issues are related to RAN and optimization is a top priority with operators. The integration of BroadHop's Quantum Network Suite into RAN Insight empowers operators to better manage the explosion in data traffic from the many new smart phones," said Lars Pedersen, CEO of CommProve. "Together, CommProve and BroadHop provide operators not only unique 2G/3G/4G intelligent network visibility but also the ability to apply policy management based on real-time information per subscriber in a 'who-what-where' format."
