Mullan Cable TV has contracted with ParaSun Technologies for provisioning software and support services to back Mullan Cable’s offer of wireless Internet services throughout the community of Mullan, Idaho.
Mullan Cable will use the new Metered Access Services module in ParaSun’s broadband provisioning and management software to enable mobile Internet services. Mullen Cable has established a network of wireless access points using high-gain antennas. The company has 420 homes passed and 200 cable subscribers.
“When we decided that Wi-Fi was an offering that we wanted to take advantage of, we were thrilled to learn that there was a module in ParaSun’s software that would enable us to launch the service quickly and seamlessly,” said Jim Dahl, owner of Mullan Cable TV Inc. “The Metered Access Services module will help us to grow our subscriber base and generate new revenues by allowing us to reach customers outside of our cable infrastructure.”
Parasun’s Metered Access Services software also provides cable operators with the option of bundling Wi-Fi roaming minutes with fixed cable modem service packages for their residential and commercial clients.
