A partnership between Incognito Software Systems and two Chinese cable operators has been announced, Business in Vancouver reports.
The Vancouver-based networking software company will be rolling out a software management tool for broadband services to Guangdong Provincial CATV and Chongqing CATV over the next two months.
The partnership will support wireless internet services to 21 million customers in China.
Guangdong Provincial CATV has around 15 million subscribers, making it the world's third largest cable provider, behind U.S.-based Comcast and Europe's UPC.
Incognito's president, Stephane Bourque, said: "We've been working in China for about eight years and we've seen China, for example, go from very small providers and a very fragmented network to one of these very large provincial- or city-driven providers."
Incognito has had previous business in China, having sold products to around 50 other operators in the country. However, this deal represents the first the company has inked with the larger operators of Guangdong Provincial CATV and Chongqing CATV.
As a result of selling two separate software suites to the providers, Incognito will enable the Chinese companies to better manage and monitor wireless internet services to their customers.
The enhanced services will aid the mainland China cable providers as they plan to expand offerings to users that wish to manage devices using Wi-Fi, Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) and high-speed data for gaming.
In a statement, vice-chief technical officer Zhang Yong said: "To support the needs of our customers, we need to extend the capabilities of our internal systems to support various scenarios and new services.
"The Incognito solution helps us achieve this while also helping us establish more streamlined and intelligent operational processes."
