Motive, Inc. and AT&T Knowledge Ventures Team To Offer End-to-End Service Assurance for IPTV



    AUSTIN, TEXAS, December 6 /CNW/ - Motive, Inc. (OTC: MOTV.PK), a leading
provider of service management software for broadband and mobile data
services, today announced a partnership with AT&T Knowledge Ventures to market
an advanced service assurance solution for Internet protocol television
(IPTV).

    Using Motive Service Assurance Solutions, providers can rapidly deploy
and manage complex service offerings--such as high-speed Internet, video,
mobile and converged services -- by enabling comprehensive visibility into and
control over the entire service delivery chain.

    Motive and AT&T have partnered to develop Motive's Service Assurance
Solution for IPTV. The solution provides customer care agents and field
technicians with access to real-time IPTV service performance information.
This information is used to help diagnosis and repair systems and applications
that span the IPTV service delivery infrastructure -- including the customer
premise, the network and the back-office.

    "Service providers around the world are making significant investments
and taking great strides to bring cutting-edge IPTV services to market," said
RJ Brideau, vice president of business and channel development of Motive. "To
maximize the full potential of those investments, Motive realizes that
time-to-market and an impeccable customer support experience are critical keys
to success. We are excited to be partnering with AT&T on our IPTV Service
Assurance Solution and believe the approach we've pioneered together will help
other service providers accelerate the rollout of their services and give
their customers high quality television experience."
