Guavus has announced Pipeline 5, the latest version of its IP mediation product for the cable industry.

Pipeline 5 supports a variety of usage-based billing models for cable MSOs fusing Internet Protocol Detail Record (IPDR) data with other information, such as customer care, network and application data, to gain detailed insights into subscriber usage and behaviour.

"Subscribers are cutting the cord in droves; abandoning fixed-term rigid packages in favour of flexible pay-as-you-go OTT services," said Anukool Lakhina, founder and CEO of Guavus. "By embracing usage-based billing, cable firms can offer the flexibility their subscribers crave by only charging for the data they consume. Yet to do so they need to have more granular, real-time visibility into subscriber consumption to feed into existing and next generation BSS frameworks. Pipeline provides that functionality while ensuring compatibility for next generation standards."
