Procera Networks, Inc., the global Subscriber Experience company and XON, the Pan-African ICT group, announced AccessKenya, the leading and most reliable converged Communication and IT infrastructure service provider in East Africa, has selected Procera’s subscriber management solution to replace an incumbent installation and deliver next generation subscriber experience management solutions to meet the region’s growing demand for high-touch IT services.
The PacketLogic™ 8000 series offers a mid-range Intelligence Delivery Platform, designed to meet the needs of growing network operators and enterprise customers. The PacketLogic 8820 supports up to 30 Gbps of traffic, all in a compact 2RU form factor. Powered by the PacketLogic software suite, the platforms are designed to enable network operators to gain insights and take action on broadband traffic to enhance the subscriber experience.
Due to an antiquated system becoming un-operational, AccessKenya needed to source a replacement for their subscriber management and provisioning system. The PL8820 was a natural fit meeting several key criteria which where critical to AccessKenya’s needs, including:
•Multi-tenant support for enterprise clients, providing an enhanced interface to manage their own bandwidth and filtering specific services
•Replacement of current subscriber statistical interface with an extended statistical interface and information
•Provisioning mechanism to allow easy provisioning of new subscribers to subscriber manager and support their corporate customer management processes
“Procera’s leading subscriber management capabilities enable us to develop and deploy new packages for our customers in ways that were previously not achievable,” said Raymond Macharia, CTO of AccessKenya. “Our customers will benefit from an enhanced experience made possible by more granular network quality and utilization data, and the PL8820’s 10G interfaces fully support our upgraded 10G backbone. We are proud to be associated with Procera Networks, through XON’s market-leading customer solutions.”
“As network operators in developing regions start to experience rapidly growing demand for IT services and provisioning, they are quickly realizing the importance of having a next-generation network intelligence platform — not only to handle the additional traffic load from today’s bandwidth-intensive services, but to bring to market new enterprise IT service offerings,” said Anthony Vimal, Vice President of EMEA Sales at Procera Networks.
