Telenet Group, the largest provider of cable broadband services and third largest mobile operator in Belgium, announced today that it has selected Infradata to replace their existing legacy Equipment Identity Register (EIR) with the BroadForward Next Generation EIR.

Telenet offers quadruple-play services consisting of video, broadband internet, and fixed-line telephony (VoIP) as well as mobile voice and data services to 4.9 million service subscribers. The acquisition of mobile operator Base enables Telenet to benefit from considerable operating synergies between their fixed and mobile network assets. The world's largest international TV and broadband company, Liberty Global, owns a 57.8% stake in Telenet.

Infradata is the leading expert and certified reseller of the entire range of BroadForward products, which include next generation products for routing, interworking, security and number portability. Infradata is selected by Telenet based on their extensive experience in design, implementation and support of BroadForward products.

The Next Generation EIR is a software based, multi-protocol solution, designed to allow or block devices across 2G/3G, 4G/LTE, 5G and Fixed networks. It supports black-, gray- and whitelisting, an unlimited number of customized lists (e.g. VIP list, exception list, suspect IoT devices etc.), and works for both individual IMEIs as well as IMEI ranges. Furthermore, the BroadForward EIR enables Telenet to generate device type reporting (model/type/software version) as well as reporting and notification at black- and gray-list detection.

As the leading expert in BroadForward products, Infradata detected and fulfilled our need for a Next Generation EIR, enabling us to extend our device management and security capabilities to cover more device types across multiple networks.

Nico Van Buitenen, MD, Infradata
The Telenet strategy is to integrate their mobile and fixed network assets to build easy-to-use quadruple-play products. This includes voice, internet, television, and mobile services. Infradata brings a unique expertise to the table to support Telenet with the implementation and support of all BroadForward products.
