In India, the Cable TV Network today comprises more than 30,000 small and medium sized Cable Operators and caters to fifty million homes in the county. It is one of the classic cases of the enterprise building talent of Indian entrepreneurs revolutionizing the Indian Entertainment Sector. This phenomenal growth just in one decade out steps the track record of the Telecom Industry, which in almost a century has achieved less connections.
This Cable TV Industry Network is also fast emerging as the key infrastructure for the growth of the country?s IT Industry, as operators can provide other data services on the same network.
Though the industry has grown from 0.4 million houses hold connections to 41 million households in 2002, and probably reach 64 million households in 2007, the industry is dominated by multiple system operators (MSO) and multiple franchisees of small entrepreneurs. The industry continues to be largely unorganized, unplanned and there by lacks systematic and efficiency driven management systems resulting in loose management and poor customer services.
With continuous innovations and introduction of technologies like Conditional Access System (CAS), Video on Demand etc., the future of this industry is bright. But there are hardly any enterprise solutions available in the form of compact management software to run and meet the demands of the industry and also meet the statutory demands from the Government in the form of rules under Cable TV Network Regulation Act, Service Tax collections, and ?pay per view? regime likely to arrive sooner or later.
Keeping this ensuing environment in mind, and to improve the quality of management at the MSO and at the Cable Operator?s level, Simplesoft Technologies has come up with unique Cable TV Management Software ? Cable TV Manager.
