Apogee Deploys LogiSense Solution to Manage On-Campus ResNet Services Nationwide

Campus Network Service Provider Reports Increased Scalability and Flexibility with EngageIP Software

LogiSense, a global provider of IP billing and OSS software, today reported results from its successful deployment with Apogee.

Headquartered in Austin, TX, Apogee is the largest provider of on-campus residential networks (ResNet) for institutes of higher education, and is widely recognized as the industry’s pioneer. Apogee’s custom solutions enhance the network infrastructure of colleges and universities to better manage users’ increasing data consumption, while simultaneously reducing the workload of campus administrators.

EngageIP, LogiSense’s flagship billing and OSS solution, is a robust, comprehensive platform that delivers the power and flexibility to manage the dynamic needs of today’s IP services. In addition, EngageIP enables service providers to innovate with new and exciting packaged offerings while still having the peace of mind that their back-end system will consistently deliver accurate revenue streams and painless operations.

Access to the Internet and digital media is a critical component in higher-learning. Today’s youth spend an increasing amount of their time on-line, often using multiple devices for their academic, personal and social endeavors. As keeping up with these needs adds considerable strain to an already stressful time of the school year; outsourcing has become the most logical way to ease this burden. LogiSense is pleased to work with an industry leader like Apogee and to provide them with the essential components that make this process run smoothly and efficiently.

Flavio Gomes – CEO, LogiSense

Apogee has planned its full-scale implementation for August 2011 to coincide with when students return to school and register for access with their respective managed portals. The company continues to sign new educational clients at an increasing pace, with no indications of any slowdown in their new business development.

As service demand grows for broadband and media access across multiple devices, campus administrators are realizing that it is much more cost-effective to outsource for managed network services. With the tools LogiSense provides us, we can now offer specialized services such as tiered plans, flexible access periods and guest access. This expanded portfolio reinforces Apogee’s position as the industry’s clear front-runner.
