ATLANTA -- IBBS, the leading provider of voice and data services for Tier 2 and 3 cable and broadband providers, today launched IBBS Bandwidth Management, a new network optimization program that gives operators comprehensive tools and insights so they may improve capacity planning, make strategic network investments and capitalize on IP service delivery trends.

The offering makes its debut as increased bandwidth consumption due to over-the-top video and peer-to-peer file sharing continues to significantly and negatively impact mid-size cable operators. Tier 2 and 3 operators have been uniquely impacted by increased data traffic due to a variety of factors including limited video on demand offerings, inadequate capacity management tools and constrained budgets for network expansions.

“Over-the-top video entertainment now accounts for nearly half of all bandwidth consumed on cable networks, and this traffic load is negatively impacting operators at nearly every point of their networks. The financial and technical effects on operations are significant and measureable,” said Kyle Johnson, director of Product Strategy at IBBS. “IBBS Bandwidth Management is designed to support the operator in taking charge of network assets, investing wisely in infrastructure improvements and enacting measures to better manage traffic and consumption.”
