LOS ANGELES -- Applied Broadband today announced a new version of its Pipeline™ Broadband Intelligence Product Suite including an enhanced Universal IP Detail Record (IPDR) Engine as well as two new applications, Pipeline Meter™ and Pipeline Analytics™. Proven to scale to the performance and reliability requirements of today’s massive DOCSIS® networks, Pipeline addresses cable operators’ need to extract actionable historical and real-time intelligence from their networks to address metered billing, bandwidth management, subscriber policy enforcement and other business objectives. Applied Broadband will be demonstrating the software in the CableNET booth at The Cable Show 2010 taking place May 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The IPDR market leader, Applied Broadband has licensed Pipeline technology to seven customers and the software is used by five of the top 10 cable operators in North America. Based on these deployments, Pipeline is now the IPDR collection layer for more than 4,000 CMTS devices worldwide representing millions of high-speed data, video and voice customers.

As the critical foundation in networks for tracking and analyzing bandwidth usage, IPDR’s role has significantly increased over the past year with operators expanding their DOCSIS® 3.0 network upgrades to add more capacity and support new product initiatives. The enhancements to the Pipeline IPDR Engine are designed to address these needs, including handling all advanced Service Definitions and IPDR requirements in the DOCSIS® 3.0 standard, using semantic routing to send IPDR streams from one CMTS to multiple network and service management applications, and real-time stream processing to eliminate delays from batch processing. In addition, the Pipeline IPDR Engine’s proven performance is unrivalled, delivering massive scale and high performance using just one-tenth the hardware required by competitive IPDR collectors.

“Even as DOCSIS® 3.0 equipment proliferates across networks and delivers increased bandwidth options to consumers, the challenge of identifying and managing consumption across multiple services without stoking the regulatory concerns of approaches that use Deep Packet Inspection continues to be a significant challenge for operators,” said Jason Schnitzer, founder and principal of Applied Broadband. “IPDR provides the ideal solution to manage bandwidth capacity and service usage with a standards-based approach to accurately tracking consumption in an application agnostic way. Pipeline’s rapid success in the market is driven by our differentiated architecture, performance and more expressive tools for operators to visualize, analyze, monetize and optimize their network bandwidth without infringing on subscribers’ privacy.”
