FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Active Broadband Networks, the leading provider of Resource Management Systems for DOCSIS® announces the availability the PrePaid Service System for DOCSIS® Data Services.

"During these difficult economic times, meeting credit requirements can be difficult for some prospective High Speed Data customers", said Adam Dunstan, President of Active Broadband Networks. "A startling number of prospective subscribers contacting operators for service fail credit requirements and an even more surprising number of customers accounts are in 30 days plus. Using the PrePaid System, service can be extended to customers failing credit requirements and the PrePaid System can be used as a mechanism to enable credit terms to be adjusted".

The Patent-Pending PrePaid System is a complete portal, credit card processing and service activation system that does not require integration with existing Billing Systems. A subscriber connecting to a Cable Modem is presented with a Portal that allows service selection and the entry of credit/debit card information. The operator designs a number of service selections that combine service speed, service duration or service usage volumes. Upon approval of the service charge from card processing, the subscriber's service is dynamically activated using PacketCable™ Multimedia. After activation the subscribers service is monitored using information from IP Detail Records. Should the duration expire and/or the allocated volume be exceeded, service is terminated and future requests are forwarded to the portal. The PrePaid System also automates receipt and usage thresholds email distribution.
