GLDS implements WinCable subscriber management and billing system at Clearleap

Great Lakes Data Systems (GLDS), a provider of billing,
subscriber management and provisioning systems for small-to-medium global
broadband providers, announced that its WinCable subscriber
management and billing system has been incorporated with Clearleap’s Stream On
Demand Solution. 

The Stream On Demand solution is a cloud-based IP content
management and delivery system that enables television service providers to
create a fully operator-branded subscriber experience.

The Clearleap solution has the capability to deliver
content to any IP connected device and helps operators to cost-effectively
provide their own branded IP video services solution rather than investing in a
completely new IP infrastructure.

By integrating with GLDS, we’re making it easier for TV
operators to monetize new services that are seamlessly connected to GLDS’
popular billing and subscriber management system for independent operators
worldwide,” said Braxton Jarratt,  Clearleap CEO.

Operators can use Clearleap’s Stream On Demand Solution
to stream unlimited hours and titles over existing broadband networks, creating
a compelling content offering delivered directly to the TV. 

The integrated solution enables operators to deliver a
fully hosted, end-to-end advanced TV offering addressing all functionalities
from content management and delivery to billing and subscriber management at a
fraction of the cost traditionally associated with larger TV operators’
on-demand offerings.

Orbitel Communications, serving more than 9,500
residential and business cable TV and HSD access subscribers in Maricopa, Ariz.
since 2002, launched the Clearleap/GLDS
solution in October 2011.

Recently TMCnet reported more than 80
operators worldwide have adopted WinCable in the Cloud solution from Great
Lakes Data Systems (GLDS).

Our integration with Clearleap ensures smooth
subscriber authorization, transaction processing and a single, integrated
billing solution, allowing our broadband operator customers to cost-effectively
offer new advanced on demand and personalized services,” said Garrick Russell,
GLDS president.

Clearleap and GLDS will
showcase the joint solution for the first time at SCTE’s Cable-Tec Expo 2011,
the television industry’s engineering show of the year.  The demonstration
will feature the joint solution operating on a Roku set-top box, an LG Smart
TV, a TiVo DVR and an iPad tablet.
