Sandvine Enhances its Fairshare Traffic Management

Sandvine announced an updated version of Fairshare Traffic Management
for fixed and mobile broadband customers featuring interoperability with DOCSIS 3.0 compatible Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS). Sandvine's platform helps manage the competition for network resources so that the best possible quality of experience is preserved for the maximum number of subscribers for the maximum amount of time.

The new version 3.2, which is in beta trials in four tier-one cable service provider networks in North America and Europe, also includes:

  • Enhanced policy options that address and manage network resources based on application, subscriber, time of day and congestion awareness

  • Advanced reporting tools that deliver detailed descriptions of policy actions, outcomes and impact

  • Sophisticated and customizable congestion management policies that operate only when and where they are needed.

"Broadband connections are increasingly being managed to ensure that all users and applications receive a fair share of network resources," said Tom Donnelly, EVP marketing and sales, Sandvine. "Fairshare Traffic Management is on its third iteration to address the growing complexity of modern operator networks. Our product manages traffic in a way that considers all types of use cases and variations of applications, users and congestion state."

Sandvine's Fairshare Traffic Management solution was first launched in May 2008. The company noted that, to date, more than 30 service provider networks serving over 90 million fixed and mobile subscribers worldwide have purchased Sandvine's Fairshare Traffic Management solution. Almost half of the customers are mobile operators.
