vBNG Can Grow Your Residential Customer Segment – Here’s 4 Reasons Why
Nowadays, residential customers are less and less impressed by triple play bundles, and with competitive offerings from various other vendors and new disruptive startups, retaining residential customers has become an enormous challenge. However, we’ve found that a simple transition from legacy broadband remote access servers (BRAS) to a virtual broadband network gateway (vBNG) not only helps retain current customers, but even draws in the attention and interest of new prospects.
A vBNG is a high-performance virtual routing and subscriber management product that empowers service providers to gain flexibility and agility by decoupling the control plane and the data plane. With a vBNG, service providers can add bypass hardware limitations, deliver higher bandwidth, and add or remove services easily.
Here are 4 ways vBNG can help you grow your residential segment:
Faster Speeds – vBNG makes it easier than ever to deliver high speeds with reliable performance.
Freedom From Hardware Limitations – With the Benu vBNG, you can offload traffic from the hardware to the cloud to free up more capacity on the box on-prem. This makes it possible to onboard new services.
Less Friction With Deployment & Troubleshooting – since vBNGs virtualize network functions, managing these pieces as well as the dynamics between the control plane and the data plane become a whole lot easier and more accessible. With the Benu vBNG, we offer a rapid activation option that allows you to instantiate new service and make changes without requiring truck rolls!
Benu Bonus: Network Visibility – the Benu vBNG also works in sync with our network monitoring tool, Benu Operations Subscriber Simulator, which gives you unparalleled visibility into end user network experience, helps identify root-cause, and ultimately reduces your mean-time-to-repair so that your customers can stay connected and happy.
Transitioning to a vBNG can give service providers the keys to success in delighting customers, gaining new customers, and increasing efficiency overall. Thinking of making the switch? Let us know!
