Service providers today face many challenges when trying to create a high quality of experience for subscribers. The combination of increased Internet traffic, an abundance of IP-connected devices, and the popularity of bandwidth-hogging over-the-top video applications make it difficult to efficiently manage bandwidth and deliver exceptional service. The solution lies in a technology that helps you harvest subscriber usage data that you already own: Internet Protocol Detail Record (IPDR).
IPDR utilizes hidden information in your network to provide superior network intelligence, allowing you to make informed planning decisions. Incorporated into DOCSIS, IPDR instructs the CMTS to periodically gather and dispatch subscriber consumption data into an external application for other departments to digest.
