Pioneering Open Access Exchange Platform to Cut Broadband “Not-Spots”
A new open access exchange platform, soon to be deployed in a cutting edge project in rural UK, will bring commercially viable fast broadband to rural areas and extend ISP market reach
8 September 2011. A brand new platform from Netadmin Systems, that enables ISPs to manage their services and subscribers across multiple access networks, is being deployed for the first time in the UK and is set to bring next generation broadband to the “Not-Spots”.
The Service Exchange Platform (SEP) which aggregates open access networks, will enable any independent network to be responsible for its own administration, operation and IT infrastructure without them becoming complex and inefficient.
Netadmin is working on the first roll-out of this solution in the UK with Independent Systems Integrator & Managed Services partner Magdalene, and business internet provider Fluidata. The three companies are partnering on the first deployment which is set to be unveiled later in September.
Netadmin CEO, Matthias Trygg, commented: “Rural broadband is being held back by the fact that ISPs currently have to create a unique integration separately to each access network and respective support system. This results in large operational expenses and potentially low quality service fulfilment and assurance processes. In many cases this precludes commercial viability.”
Trygg added: “The Service Exchange Platform provides a single interface so that services and subscribers in multiple external access networks can be managed simply and effectively. This will enable efficient service delivery even in smaller local networks, providing services to not-spots, and increasing market reach for service providers.”
The pioneering technology aggregates open access networks and will revolutionise the availability of high-speed broadband access in rural locations, providing unprecedented choice for customers.
Loic Flageul, Magdalene, comments: “By combining the real world experience of Magdalene in building last mile networks with an integrated v OSS/BSS stack and Fluidata’s wholesale platform we have a compelling case to work with any provider or network to deliver access to multiple ISPs. By delivering choice to consumers we are ensuring competition at the service layer which helps to drive innovation in high speed service availability.”
The news of this technology follows Netadmin’s announcement last month that it will be stepping up its activity outside of the Nordic region where it is currently the market leader.
Netadmin will be exhibiting at the Broadband World Forum in Paris between 27 – 29 September.
