Broadband Service Control & Monetization


Inventum’s UNIFY™ Service Management Platform (SMP) provides a modular suite of integrated broadband control & billing products. 
 

Using the UNIFY™, broadband providers can rapidly deliver personalized & differentiated revenue generating services. For example, usage metered broadband, application based charging, bandwidth boost for video & multi-step fair use policies. Successful deployments of the UNIFY™ include both mobile (2-4G) & fixed-line broadband.

 

Mobile Operators

 

Augment existing mobile offerings with new broadband services. For example, use the UNIFY™ to launch prepay Wi-Fi™ hotspots and enable seamless 3G mobile data offload services. New broadband providers, particularly those deploying LTE & WiMAX™ may consider the UNIFY™ as their primary system for end-to-end service monetization & management.

 

The UNIFY™ solution uses 3GPP & IETF specified interfaces to integrate with the existing mobile core, making deployment effortless. 

 

ISP & WISP

 

Comprehensive suite of applications to address all billing & operational needs of an ISP/WISP. Scale from a thousand to a million subscribers within the same UNIFY™ deployment. 

 

Start with the AAA & Subsriber Management System. Add Prepay Charging & Postpaid Billing modules as needed. Engage subscribers with Captive Portals, Self-Care dashboards, Helpdesk & other CRM features. Use the Voucher Management System to manage retail & wholesale channel businesses. Generate Prepay recharge cards, PIN & one-time-passwords (OTP).
