Asianet Dataline, one of the largest private cable ISPs from India, revamps there billing and bandwidth management infrastructure. The switch happened by mid-night of Feb 1st of 2009. Much to the relief of it’s thousands of subscribers, Asianet ditches the dreaded Cyberoam 24online and moves to Mettle Wire for billing and account management. Asianet is yet to announce this change, I doubt they will ever do, but we hope this is for good and is permanent.
The new software, Mettle Wire, is a product offered by a Trivandrum (Kerala, India) based company Linuxense Information Systems and a new entry to the already crowded ISP software market. I wish them best of luck since they bagged an ISP like Asianet already.
Mettleâ„¢ Wire is meant for those ISPs looking for providing flexible bandwidth packages to consumers and business customers. Mettleâ„¢ Wire handles this task with byte-level accuracy and unmatched flexibility.
Another surprising fact is that the login page is now a url, instead of a local ip address in Cyberoam. In my case the address is “https://mwcp-tvm-04.adlkerala.com:8001/”, so I assume it will be different for customers in differnet areas (see the tvm filed in the url, short form of Trivandrum). The My Account page looks neat, less cluttered and it’s also a public url (https://myaccount.adlkerala.com/index.php). Good work to guys at Mettle Wire.
I wish the best speeds and correct bills to all Asianet Dataline customers! Die, Cyberoam, die!
