NTL Home, Wipro Technologies Develop Broadband Plus Customer Portal

12/9/2003 - Wipro Technologies, the global IT services division of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT), announced that NTL Home has worked with them to develop its Broadband Plus portal that will provide content from 15 leading premium content providers. Broadband Plus is a unique broadband service that provides an ‘access all areas’ pass to some of the best paid-for premium content on the web, bundled together for the first time, at a fraction of their standalone prices.

Broadband Plus has been designed with NTL Home's highly specified 600Kb and 1Mb Broadband products in mind. This new added value service features extensive video and interactive content to appeal to the higher speed broadband users. As an introductory offer, NTL Home is offering three months’ free access to Broadband Plus.

Chris Bunyan, Head of Core Internet Services for NTL Home, said, “Wipro’s creative use of technology solutions is helping us diversify our business model and generate revenue from different sources other than our core services. Wipro demonstrated a strong understanding of our business processes, and worked effectively with cross functional teams and our multiple vendors”.

Steve Saxton, EMEA, Practice Manager, Wipro Technologies, said, “Wipro completed this project on time and on budget. Employing both onsite and offshore teams and utilising leading-edge quality processes kept this complex project on track.”

Paul Thomalla, Head of Strategic Platform, Microsoft UK, said “ Wipro not only had extensive knowledge of this sector but they also had excellent hands-on in .Net technology – this combination provided a truly integrated solution.”

Wipro’s development of the Broadband Plus Portal solution included:

Wipro was involved in designing and developing the end to end solution including data modelling, integrating multiple systems, integrating existing processes into one view, reliability, redundancy, testing, scalability, performance and security.

Wipro used the latest cutting edge technologies like Microsoft.NET, Web services, design patterns and best practices adopted from Microsoft.

A particular challenge for Wipro was integrating Broadband Plus applications with various partners whose content was hosted on different machines. Wipro provided an interface to these partners and created a seamless transition from broadband plus to the partner site.
