Customer Testimonial

“In addition, sporadic fluctuations in bandwidth on IP connections are measured automatically and the bandwidth is optimized so that customers do not experience disconnections. This is done via automated remote intervention using the so-called ‘ASSIA tool.” This tool is a software application for optimum operational control of broadband connections.”
