Kabel Deutschland chooses Proxilliant

The German operator Kabel Deutschland (KDG) has selected Proxilliant’s Cable Access Management System (CAMS) for deployment. The decision by KDG, with nine million customers, follows a trial of the product in the city of Trier.

CAMS provides comprehensive and continuous information about network and service health while actively improving service quality; necessary as cable operators look to deliver their advanced services broadly and deeply throughout their networks.

CAMS features intelligence deployed deep into the access network that works in concert with sophisticated software in the regional head-end or central data centre. The intelligent management of the HFC network and services is combined with the industry’s only managed ingress suppression technology. This allows operators to reduce their field and network troubleshooting time and costs by pinpointing quickly, while also eliminating the propagation of quality-eroding ingress.

“With Proxilliant’s solution, our network performs at new highs of robustness for our broadband Internet, cable TV and phone services,” said Wolfgang Teichmann, VP Network Engineering at KDG in a statement.

“The CAMS solution is a critical part of our efforts to deliver unmatched reliability and service quality to our customers.”
