VoIP Switch - St. Regis Mohawk Tribe Expands Broadband Capability with GLDS' WinCable Solutions

June 26, 2014


The WinCable billing & provisioning solutions from Great Lakes Data Systems, Inc. (GLDS) have been deployed by the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe in Akwesasne, NY, to support its broadband expansion.

“We researched a number of broadband management platforms and found that GLDS offered the most comprehensive solution,” said Jeff Beekhoo, general manager of the St. Regis Tribe. “I was impressed with GLDS' ability to analyze a fairly complex project and provide solutions that not only met our growing needs, but meet them cost-effectively.”

GLDS said that its WinCable systems are designed based on more than three decades of broad data conversion experience and capabilities, and they can ensure a smooth transition from all billing systems, at a fraction of the costs of other billing systems.

St. Regis employs the full suite of WinCable billing & provisioning solutions to power its broadband expansion for FTTH, VoIP and next-gen Internet services. GLDS’ SuperController enterprise billing and subscriber management will provision St. Regis’ double-play services over FTTH, and Service Provisioning Gateway (News - Alert) (SPG) for automated voice provisioning.

GLDS’ WinForce tech will ensure St. Regis’ field technicians enjoy more power while the CableAnytime solution will be in charge of Web-based customer self-care. St. Regis will also use GLDS’ WinVoIP for call detail record billing and WinPay for automated payment processing and more.

These WinCable solutions are said to be more intuitive, offering greater operational control and are less restrictive than other systems available. They are also integrated with a direct provisioning feature that enables efficient triple play service delivery and removes the need for multiple disparate systems which in turn paves the way for easy management of Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) network.

GLDS noted that it works hard to stay ahead of the industry technology requirements and is always looking for the means to ensure that its customers receive the quickest paths to new revenues. With its WinCable solutions it has helped St. Regis to offer top-notch, cutting-edge services and is also pleased to provide them with tier-one subscriber management functionality, without the tier one price.
