Guavus has released Pipeline 5.0, the latest version of its IP mediation product for the cable industry.

Pipeline 5 introduces new revenue assurance capabilities that enhance the industry-leading product suite, while continuing to provide the most “billing ready” usage data available in the market.

The application promises to empower multiple systems operators (MSOs) with improved customer experience management (CEM) capabilities, while simultaneously paving the way for a variety of usage-based billing models.

Also, Pipeline 5 is fully compatible with next-generation network infrastructures and service standards, including Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) 3.1, Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) and DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE).

Pipeline 5 enables MSOs to fuse 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 behavior.

The application harnesses the power of the Guavus Reflex Operational Intelligence platform, enabling faster time to insights through the use of real-time open source big data technologies, including Apache Spark and HBase.

“Subscribers are cutting the cord in droves; abandoning fixed-term rigid packages in favor of flexible pay-as-you-go OTT services,” said Anukool Lakhina, 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.”
