AVSystem, ISP Supplies to Help WISPs CBRS-Based Services

AVSystem and ISP Supplies announce their partnership to deliver a turn-key service management solution for wireless internet service providers (WISPs) that is tailored for the CBRS market.

The growth in this area has been enabled by the Federal Communication Commission’s release of the 3.5 GHz band – the so-called Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). This offers opportunities for WISPs to bring affordable broadband fixed wireless access services to rural and underserved areas, as they now have more deployment options available.

Under the partnership, as a value-added reseller, ISP Supplies pre-integrates and resells AVSystem’s standards-based auto configuration server service management platform, along with tested hardware from ISP Supplies’ hardware partners. The goal is to provide an end-to-end turn-key solution to enable fast and reliable service deployment and effective operational service management.

This is especially important where broadband access has become a priority for many households and the lack of it can lead to exclusion in areas such as education and employment. Additionally, service providers are looking for safe and socially distant methods of device onboarding that require little to no truck roll.

AVSystem’s software offers a broad set of device management capabilities, deployable on-premise and in the cloud. These include remote onboarding and group monitoring of devices over different protocols, such as TR-069 and USP, as well as extensive customer care features. AVSystem’s solution also has a tailored fixed wireless access module that allows service providers to deliver better customer experience, cut operational expenses and automate service quality assurance in this area.
