Minn. City Taps ETI Provisioning Software

The city of Windom, Minn., will use ETI Software Solutions Inc. software to provision new premium telecommunication services to its subscribers.

ETI develops software that automates fiber-to-the-home and video-service activation for video, telephony and data services.

Windom selected ETI's flagship product, “CableBridge,” to serve as the master-controller to simultaneously provision voice, video, video-on-demand and data services over the city's FTTH network.

ETI's platform will also bridge Windom's billing and customer-care system to the FTTH network and multiple broadband technologies, enabling it to automatically activate the fiber gateway at the home, set the appropriate high-speed-data rate and activate the set-top box with the appropriate channels based on packages or services ordered by the subscriber.

With CableBridge, Windom's customers will receive one unified bill itemizing all services, including pay-per-view purchases.
