Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators has announced that a new European tier-1 mobile communications service provider (CSP) has launched mobile data management features of Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller product, and has signed several initial enterprise customers for the service.

The initial enterprise mobile customers, served from the CSP’s cloud, operate in dramatically different industries, but each immediately recognized the cost control and productivity benefits associated with viewing and controlling the domestic and international mobile data usage of thousands of its users in real-time. In this deployment, Sandvine’s local partner used the Cloud Services Policy Controller’s APIs to integrate the product directly into the CSP’s enterprise customer service portal, and plans to integrate the functionality into the CSP’s enterprise mobile application for Android and iOS in the near future.

“The recent addition of mobile data management features to Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller is generating a tremendous amount of interest from mobile CSPs looking to learn how they can help busineess customers view, control, and protect their mobile data,” said Dave Caputo, CEO, Sandvine. “The product allows CSPs to differentiate their offerings in the competitive business market and gain a new subscription-based revenue stream by offering business customers fine-grained policy control of employees’ mobile data.”

Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller delivers powerful mobile data management functionality through a virtualized platform, flexible APIs, and a web-based portal. With these capabilities, IT administrators can eliminate bill shock, increase employee productivity, and strengthen mobile security through unique features, including:

Real-Time Geolocation: View the real-time location of domestic and roaming users and devices on an interactive map.
Application Management and Roaming Zone Control: Create data usage policies that allow the business to automatically block or rate-limit individual applications (e.g. Netflix or YouTube) or traffic categories (e.g. Real-Time Entertainment or Social Networking) during specific times of day, or while roaming in specific zones.
User Notifications and Configurable Data Thresholds: Send customizable usage notifications or roaming alerts to users and IT administrators based on configurable data thresholds for domestic Internet usage and data roaming.
Simple Deployment Model: No software or configuration required on end-user devices. Deploy the Cloud Services Policy Controller in the CSP’s cloudand enable the mobile data management functionality on a per business customer basis.

Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller is a cloud-based, application-aware solution that is delivered to businesses as-a-service from their CSP, managed service provider, or system integrator. Growth in consumer subscribers is slowing or stalled for CSPs in many markets, but growth in the profitable business services segment is booming. Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller allows CSPs to differentiate their offering to attract new and retain existing business customers.
