Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society attracts new partner

Thursday, 09 September, 2010

Clarity, an Australian software company, has joined the Industry Partner Program at the University of Melbourne’s Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society (IBES).

Clarity will  deploy its operational management software for the use of IBES industry partners and researchers, who use the lab to test and verify new broadband applications and business models. The Clarity operational software makes it easy for application and content providers to deploy their services over broadband networks. It provides an online catalogue for service providers to offer their own and third-party products to end customers; activates and bills for those products and services; and assures quality of service. By using the Clarity software, IBES partners and researchers are able to focus on their core products, without needing the skill sets to manage network complexities.

IBES Director Professor Rod Tucker says, “Clarity will help IBES to integrate its innovative, next-generation applications into the the network. Using Clarity’s technologies, IBES researchers will be able to precisely emulate NBN-like scenarios. The societal impact of the NBN will be profound and, as a result, organisations like IBES will be able to develop new technologies, applications and services that will be in high demand as other nations follow Australia’s lead.”

IBES is a research and development venture that focuses on the full range of applications and technologies relating to next-generation broadband. It combines the University of Melbourne’s world-leading research in broadband technologies and applications, such as e-health, e-education, digital environments, culture and communications, and legal and regulatory issues related to broadband, together with a state-of-the-art test-bed laboratory which uses ‘fibre to the home’ and wireless technology to demonstrate realistic broadband operation.
