ADSL, FTTx, cable and WI-FI operators have to implement new traffic management approaches to control traffic growth while providing better QoS and QoE
Challenges for Fixed Telecom Operators, ISPs, Cable and Broadband Providers
High Speed Internet traffic tsunami is driving Broadband Providers to invest heavily in their networks.
Large internet content and applications providers are reaching end customers bypassing the broadband access provider networks and any relationship with them. Altogether such services represent over 90% of high speed internet traffic as a mix of numerous simultaneous flows that enters the broadband provider networks at the peering points. Concurrently, and on top of net neutrality rules, the traffic of Internet services is subject to increased initiatives from governmental authorities who are publishing laws for the sanity of internet bringing new legal requirements to broadband providers.
To face growing operational costs and investments, ISPs need to avoid disintermediation and commoditization of their services while complying with local regulation. The peering point is the place where traffic and business models may meet in the future.
By deploying next generation policy management and enabling new services, Vedicis provides to Broadband providers visibility intelligence and control to their pipes from transit and peering points to:
Understand customer service usage with Usage Metering :
- Statistics including top content/talkers/APPs…
- Data capture with xDR
- Service metering for charging
- Traffic extraction/copy extraction to select relevant information/data/content for VAS servers and/or diagnostic tools
Innovate by enhanced consumer quality of experience and personalized services with User Traffic Control :
- APPs bandwidth limiting
- APPs QoS marking for differentiated traffic management at the application level and prioritization
- Content or IP/AS/subnet traffic routing dynamic cache enablement, in the case of CDN for OTT content.
Comply with local regulations with Network Content Control and improve network security with :
- Session control for DOS alerts and mitigation
- Content filtering and URL blocking with black list enforcement
- APPs blocking to comply with regulation depending on countries
New traffic management benefits
Grow revenue and limit capex
From a financial point of view, Vedicis solution helps operator to optimize current network infrastructure, and thus to delay new capex to increase broadband capacity. Differentiated QoS, new data packages with prioritized APPs enable new offers creation and implementation to monetize current deployed broadband capacity
Optimize network usage and create smart pipe
At the network level, differentiated QoS, bandwidth control and optimization of the Content Delivery Networks are key to enforce congestion relief policies and traffic fair usage especially to avoid peak time’s congestion and traffic slowness due to bandwidth intensive behaviour, whether it comes from individuals (the top talkers) or specific protocols like Peer-to-Peer.
Comply with regulation and enhance network protection
By enabling strict content policy enforcement, Vedicis Solution delivers unique capabilities to comply with local regulations that are aimed at controlling the access to unauthorized content. A clear visibility upon traffic flows, volume and bandwidth with limitation, thresholds and caps implementation provides as well an essential component for network protection and security.
