WATERLOO, ON., Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Sandvine, a leading provider of cloud-based application and network intelligence solutions, announced that it has been awarded a multimillion-dollar order from Digicel, which last year relaunched as a fully Digital Operator providing personalized digital experiences with suites of applications for on-the-go sports, music, news, local radio, podcasts, and messaging.
The move to Sandvine's Active Network Intelligence (ANI) Portal and Analytics use cases is a natural next step for Digicel, which for the last eight years has delighted customers with innovative plans and fast delivery of content using Sandvine's Revenue Generation and Network Optimization use cases.
