Wi-Manx has deployed Allot NetEnforcer to optimize WiMAX services and offer innovative broadband service packages
SOPHIA, ANTIPOLIS – 5th July, 2007 – Allot Communications (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leader in IP service optimisation solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), today announced that the Isle of Man business wireless Internet service provider has deployed Allot's DPI-based bandwidth management solution, the NetEnforcer. WiMANX is using the solution to optimise the delivery of WiMAX and VoIP services to residential and corporate customers.
As competition in this field has been increasing in the region over the past few years, Wi-Manx made it a priority to continue to deliver their advanced services reliably and focus on customer satisfaction. The company designed and built their entire infrastructure to support these cutting-edge services and deployed the Allot NetEnforcer to ensure a consistently high level of service. In the first stages of deployment, Wi-Manx used the Allot solution to gain an insight into the kinds of traffic on their network. They then used the NetEnforcer to prioritise applications and gave time-sensitive applications such as corporate VoIP and online gaming a higher priority.
"Allot's solution provides us with greater transparency and visibility into what is actually going on over our internet connection. Previously I knew large amounts of bandwidth were being used but I didn’t know what by. With the NetEnforcer I get a detailed breakdown of our traffic: I know who is using it, what services are being used," comments Wi-Manx Technical Manager Joe Hughes. "We were immediately able to achieve our primary goal of optimising VoIP services. Furthermore, we have prioritised corporate and residential time-sensitive applications so they are not hindered by other bandwidth-consuming services."
Using the Allot solution, Wi-Manx were also able to introduce new capped broadband service packages based on pre-allocated monthly quotas. This presented a significant progression from the traditional "all-you-can-eat" service packages offered in the Isle of Man region and a huge attraction to customers in search of a lower-cost alternative to the existing package. One of Wi-Manx's other main services is a next generation WiMAX wireless service. Wi-Manx use the Allot NetEnforcer to enforce policies that make it possible to offer these services at competitive prices and ensure a premium quality of service.
After looking into a number of competing alternatives, Wi-Manx decided to go with the Allot carrier-grade solution for its ease of integration and use, and the immediately perceived ROI it presented. The company's technical consultants were reassured by the easy-to-use interface, granular control and the ability of the NetEnforcer to integrate with the company's range of existing in-house management systems. With the Allot solution granting them real-time visibility and control of the network, they were able to improve the quality of service and further improve customer satisfaction by creating and enforcing policies to handle performance issues on the network as they arise.
"The Allot deployment in Wi-Manx is a perfect example of what service optimisation is all about; it’s a way of rising above your competition through an offering centered on the customers' quality of experience. This carrier grade NetEnforcer-based solution lets them put customer satisfaction at the top of their priority list – and deliver on that promise with affordable, reliable and innovative services," comments Allot CEO and president, Rami Hadar.
