OpenVault, Witke deploy PMA, PNM capabilities for Kabel-TV Lampert
November 2, 2023
Kabel-TV Lampert, an Austrian provider of broadband, television, IPTV and telephony services, has committed to deploy through Witke OpenVault’s Profile Management Application (PMA) and Proactive Network Maintenance (PNM) solutions throughout its network infrastructure.
Kabel-TV Lampert will deploy OpenVault’s automated OV PMA and OV PNM products to optimise network performance and subscriber experiences for its broadband internet subscribers in Western Austria. OpenVault’s first customer in Austria, Kabel-TV Lampert continues the company’s expansion within the European market.
“High-quality service delivery is an absolutely essential part of our commitment to our subscribers,” said Sven Lovisi, CTO of Kabel-TV Lampert. “As the leading single source for PMA and PNM capabilities, OpenVault will ensure that our subscribers continue to receive the broadband experiences that meet or exceed their expectations.”
“Kabel TV Lampert GmbH & CoKG has a rich history of making sure that its subscribers have access to the latest and best technologies,” said Henk Boers, VP Sales Europe for OpenVault. “We look forward to helping them take the lead in using our OV PMA and OV PNM products to drive network quality up and operational costs down.”
PMA was developed by CableLabs to leverage the programmable PHY layer to increase the usable capacity in DOCSIS 3.1 networks. The goal of PMA is to optimise the amount of data that can be transferred on an OFDM(A) channel in a given amount of time based on real-world impaired plant conditions.
OpenVault says it became the unchallenged leader in broadband prescriptive optimisation when it acquired Nimble This, a provider of PNM solutions. OpenVault previously had developed PMA technology that optimizes modulation profiles used by DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems on OFDM(A) channels resulting in overall network capacity increases of up to 40 , as well as higher resilience of DOCSIS 3.1 modems.
