Gotham Broadband Offers New Support for Broadband Service ProvidersTop Gotham Technology Executives to Lead Group (December 18, 2001)
"As broadband service providers continue to roll out to customers, they are looking for efficient and cost effective ways to support their new products and services," says Gotham co-CEO Rafi Kronzon. "Our experience building broadband applications makes support a natural extension of our core business."
With this addition to its core competencies, Gotham Broadband continues to leverage its unique expertise in servicing the cable, telecommunications and satellite high-speed data industries. Offering ongoing support on systems integration, product implementation and development, Gotham can provide continued assistance to its growing list of global clients, many of whom do not have resources in-house to manage their broadband ventures.
Day-to-day operations are to be managed by iTV veteran Sam Carlson, who has designed and built remote satellite-based live Web-casting architectures and has experience building, staffing, and operating 24/7 iTV broadcast facilities.
Focusing on establishing operations processes, and ensuring that training and internal handoffs are seamless and cost-effective, the new team is chartered with maintaining newly-launched products and services, including performance tuning and determining metrics for subscriber load, usage numbers for efficient scalability, and integrating into the clients business processes. "IT costs are taking a toll on per-subscriber profitability," said CTO Bijan Chowdhury, a former Senior Director of consulting services at software giant Oracle (ORCL). "As broadband service providers focus on reducing IT expenses, they increasingly need skilled resources to streamline their operations. Gotham provides these key skills."
