Procera Networks announced it has received a first-time, multi-million dollar order from a Tier 1 EMEA mobile operator. This operator owns ~40% market share in their home market, and is aggressively deploying advanced services that require a higher level of Internet Intelligence for both analytics and enforcement. Procera believes it was selected due to its performance and network and subscriber visibility advantages over the competition, and will replace the incumbent supplier in the network going forward. PacketLogic solutions, including the 320Gbps PL20000, will be used to perform network and subscriber analytics, customer experience assurance, and intelligent charging services that will enable innovative new service offerings for the mobile operator. This order was booked in the fourth quarter of 2013 and the associated revenue recognition is expected in the first half of 2014.
“Procera is pleased to be selected by this Tier 1 mobile operator after a very competitive bid and selection process,” said Paul Gracie, senior vice president of global sales and services at Procera. “Mobile operators worldwide are looking to gain better insights into the changing nature of their subscriber’s mobile data consumption, and Procera delivers the most scalable solution for analytics and enforcement.”
Procera’s IPE system is 3GPP-compliant and equipped with standard interfaces, allowing for scalability to support tens of millions of subscribers in 3GPP MNO networks. Procera’s ability to provide fine-grain context to mobile analytics through its PacketLogic Subscriber Manager and PacketLogic Intelligence Center products was a critical factor in the selection criteria for this deployment. The operator also plans to deploy revenue-generating services with the PacketLogic solutions, and Procera’s scalability and performance for a large, geographically diverse deployment was a key technical advantage for Procera.
