To meet the growing demands of bandwidth-hungry 4G networks and maintain network integrity, Alepo introduces its Policy Manager for dynamic, real-time policy management.
July 21, 2010, Austin, TX — Alepo Technologies Inc., a leading provider of BSS/OSS solutions for next generation services, announced today the introduction of the Alepo Policy Manager for comprehensive, real-time policy management. Offering such advanced features as on-the-fly QoS changes and bandwidth changes based on consumed content, the Policy Manager offers a more customized user experience while maintaining network integrity.
In today’s 4G environment, the use of bandwidth-intensive smart devices is becoming commonplace, often stretching network resources to capacity. For service providers, the demand to offer a more interactive user experience while optimizing network resources and enforcing fair access policies grows increasingly challenging.
The Alepo Policy Manager meets this demand by offering dynamic policy changes. A “turbo button” allows users to temporarily boost bandwidth on demand, while the bandwidth downgrade feature guards network integrity by downgrading overactive users and enforcing maximum download policies.
“Handling network congestion without a noticeable decline in service quality is a key concern in a marketplace where services delivered over internet are increasing faster than the network technology. Alepo’s Policy Manager is able to take this potential market pitfall and create an opportunity, maintaining network integrity and customer satisfaction through more fine-grained product offerings,” stated Jonathan Garini, Vice President of Products at Alepo.
With initial deployments at Digicel Jamaica, Telkom Kenya and Nigerian service provider, Cobranet, demand for the high-performing Alepo Policy Manager is evident. By including the Alepo Policy Manager in a complete Alepo BSS/OSS solution, these leading service providers assure themselves not only of a highly responsive system, but also of product offerings custom-suited to their customer base, increasing customer satisfaction and increasing revenue per customer.

With the introduction of a high-performing DHCP-based IP Address Management solution to Alepo’s BSS/OSS solutions suite, service providers achieve a comprehensive, centralized policy management solution supporting 4G networks.
July 8, 2010, Austin, TX — Alepo Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of BSS/OSS solutions for next generation services, announced today the expansion of its comprehensive policy management solution with the addition of the Advanced IP Address Management (IPAM) Solution. A DHCP-based solution designed explicitly for service providers, Alepo’s Advanced IPAM Solution seamlessly integrates with other network elements to provide a centralized, comprehensive policy management solution.
As 4G technologies gravitate toward all IP-based networks, the need for a truly centralized policy management solution becomes increasingly apparent. As the first of its kind to feature a built-in AAA client, Alepo’s Advanced IPAM Solution allows service providers to directly administer IP address policies from one centralized policy management system.
Built on a flexible SOA-based platform, Alepo’s Advanced IPAM Solution is available to all network elements via web services APIs, which allows service providers to seamlessly integrate it with their existing infrastructure while emerging into new technologies.
“In the evolving 4G network environment, we’ve seen a clear demand for more advanced features from a policy management solution,” stated Brandon Johnson, Director of Operations at Alepo, adding, “The inclusion of Alepo’s Advanced IPAM Solution amplifies and streamlines the capabilities of a policy management solution.”
The highly available, carrier grade solution was recently integrated with Digicel Jamaica’s existing GSM network as part of a WiMAX deployment. The inclusion of Alepo’s Advanced IPAM Solution in Digicel Jamaica’s WiMAX network will enable this leading Caribbean service provider to offer more granular and value-added services to its nearly six million subscribers.
Value-Added Services & IPAM

In addition, providers using Alepo’s Advanced IPAM Solution as part of their BSS/OSS solution are able to more efficiently allocate IP addresses by segmenting blocks of IP addresses into IP pools and assigning them to specific customer groups. The 4G-ready solution supports both IPv4 and IPv6.
