MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- Camiant, the worldwide leading provider of policy control solutions, today announced the Camiant Universal Edge Resource Manager (UERM), which enables cable operators to maximize bandwidth efficiency across services, including switched digital video and video on demand (VOD).

Traditionally, cable networks have been architected with dedicated QAMs tied to a particular channel or service, such as VOD, VoIP or high-speed Internet. This architecture resulted in inefficient use of network resources as unused bandwidth remained idle during periods when it could have been utilized to deliver more popular services or programming. Camiant's Universal Edge Resource Manager enables QAM sharing, enabling bandwidth to be distributed as needed across an expanded host of services including switched digital video or Modular-CMTS.

The edge resource manager plays a significant role in switched digital video and video on demand deployments, ensuring that bandwidth is made available in dynamic response to those programs being actively requested by subscribers.

"Cable operators deploying Camiant's Universal Edge Resource Manager are able to leverage policy-based intelligence to best control bandwidth allocation, enabling more channels in a switched environment or expanded VOD content," said Susie Kim Riley, founder and chief technology officer for Camiant. "Camiant's ability to provide edge resource management is a natural extension of our leading efforts in the development of policy control technology."
