Thursday October 29, 2009
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigBand Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:BBND), a leader in digital video networking, today announced an enhancement to the company’s Switched Video Analysis (SVA) solution, offering cable operators further ways to leverage Switched Digital Video (SDV) architectures and BigBand’s recently unveiled video software control plane, Converged Video Exchange (CVEx™). The new SVA enhancement is a software upgrade to the industry’s most widely deployed SDV platform and offers MSOs the ability to optimize SDV assets and HFC spectrum and to maximize programming availability.
For example, service providers are using the SVA software to track success rates for tunein requests on SDV channels, to plan service group and node splits, and to optimize SDV channels line-ups in order to maximize the number of programs that can be carried in the spectrum (oversubscription) without blocking events. BigBand solutions currently execute billions of real-time transactions, yielding valuable information for network planning and increasing the relevancy of the overall subscriber experience.
