BOSTON Connected2Fiber, the location engagement platform for network buyers and sellers, announced today the launch of its serviceability portal to help clients drive more revenue through their channel selling efforts.
Connected2Fiber's location engagement platform leverages trusted, location-based insights into over 350 million buildings to power a variety of applications for network providers that span planning to pricing. One of the most commonly used applications in the platform automatically identifies all of a network provider's serviceable locations and allows the team to communicate that footprint to external partners via a variety of methods, including email and API. Connected2Fiber's serviceability portal capability will extend that advertising thought process to the channel (whether it be agent, enterprise, carrier, etc.) by way of queries that retrieve a network provider's serviceability, product, and pricing information at a building level.
Specifically, the serviceability portal will enable a network provider to selectively advertise its serviceable location footprint to its channel community. End users will be able to view if a particular location is serviceable by the provider (in single and batch queries), the products available at each location, and the pricing for that end user.
In addition to advertising their serviceable locations, network providers using the portal will be able to gain insight into the locations queried in their instance. This information can inform future pricing and building decisions to help providers drive further revenue growth.
Overall peak usage on US cable networks continues to flatten out and even decline slightly, but sustained higher levels of usage on the upstream path have persisted, according to the latest data from the NCTA.
Over the next two years, approximately 60% of service providers (both large and small) will adopt virtualization on a wide scale across their networks, according to the latest survey report from Ovum. Why are providers making these moves? Is there an easy way to start?
Learn how and why service providers are using virtualization to transform their networks. This webinar will look at how providers are leveraging virtualization to create more flexible and agile networks while also providing a better customer experience. Expert speakers from netElastic and Heavy Reading will address the industry drivers for network virtualization, the benefits that can be realized, the challenges to face and the results of virtualization being achieved by providers today.
Key topics will include:
Current network infrastructure and the move to virtualization
Benefits and challenges of network virtualization
How providers can get started
Service provider success stories: the decision to virtualize, the solution, and results
