The company’s most recent honor was publicized by CableFAX as many of the cable TV industries’ representatives attended The Independent Show hosted by the National Cable Television Cooperative through July 25 at the Orlando Convention Center. Representatives of Comporium’s Wholesale Security, Monitoring and Automation group are attending, and they are hosting Booth #11 in the Exhibit Hall.
In addition to investing in and utilizing the iControl platform for its own customer base of digital video subscribers in South and North Carolina, Comporium also assists Multiple Service Operators (MSOs) and telecommunications companies across the country with its Wholesale Security, Monitoring and Automation (SMA) Dealer Program.
“We are excited and honored to have been selected by CableFAX Magazine for this honor,” said Comporium’s Dan Lehman, director/general manager – SMA. “We have been in the telecommunications and cable TV businesses for quite awhile, and the development of this technology ranks among the most lifestyle changing ones that have ever come along.”
Comporium has been offering security systems and monitoring for 25 years, and several years ago it invested in the “connected home” technology that is now promoted through Palo Alto, Calif., based iControl Networks. This same technology is the foundation of security and home monitoring services being offered by Time Warner Cable, which was also recognized for its IntelligentHome service by CableFAX, and Comcast.
“We saw it coming some time ago, but with the deep penetration of high-speed Internet access and the advent of smartphones and tablets, the ‘connected home’ is now literally at our fingertips,” Lehman added. “Cable TV, telecommunications and power industries can create real value to their customers and also increase revenues and profits.”
Comporium, the nation’s 13th largest telecommunications provider and 27th largest MSO has its own Central Station Alarm Association Five Diamond Certified monitoring station. In addition, the company provides training, technical support and marketing support for its wholesale customers. Lehman was attributed to saying that he “…expects customer uptake to happen quickly.” The company recently announced that it had increased its own staff by 60 percent in recent months to prepare to meet the demand.
