Gauvus buys IPDR analyst Pipeline

M&A North America

US — Big data analytics provider to the media and comms industry Guavus has acquired Pipeline, an internet protocol detailed records (IPDR) analyst for the cable industry.

Created by Applied Broadband, Pipeline is currently licensed by seven of the top ten multiple system operators (MSO) in North America as the IPDR solution for millions of broadband cable subscribers.

Guavus said that the acquisition allows it to become the first big data analytics solution to provide MSOs with a comprehensive view of their networks, services, devices and subscribers.

Founder and principal at Applied Broadband Jason Schnitzer said: “Clearly, the time for cable big data is now and Guavus is uniquely positioned to take IPDR to the next level by incorporating Pipeline into its comprehensive analytics solutions to deliver even more business value for MSOs.”
