NewWave Communications has renewed its relationship with IBBS in a multi-year contract for data and voice provisioning and support services

ATLANTA – October 22, 2013 – IBBS, the leading provider of cloud-based data and voice support services for Tier 2 and 3 broadband and cable providers, today announced that Sikeston, Missouri-based NewWave Communications, a subsidiary of Rural Broadband Investments (RBI), has renewed its relationship with IBBS in a multi-year contract for data  and voice provisioning and support services. The deal also encompasses subscribers that RBI/NewWave recently acquired from CMA Communications and McDonald Group – both companies that were also IBBS customers prior to the acquisition.

For more than five years, NewWave Communications has been a leading provider of cable services to subscribers in communities across Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, and their footprint recently extended to include TX, LA, MS and NV  from the afore mentioned acquisition of CMA Communications and the McDonald Group. For several years, NewWave Communications has benefitted from a suite of IBBS Service Activation and Service Assurance services for critical back-office support of their broadband offerings.

“IBBS’ robust Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, systems architecture, and expertise make our partnership with them the only choice for ensuring that we deliver the highest quality broadband services to our customers,” said Ken Johnson, COO at NewWave Communications. “We consider IBBS to be an extension of our company. They have been a dedicated partner in the growth of our business and our broadband services and their expertise in providing seamless service migrations has been integral to our success.”
