Telecom Software Provider Procera Networks Secures Large New Customer
By Ashok Bindra
Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology based Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) solutions provider, Procera Networks (News - Alert) has announced that it has secured an initial order for its PacketLogic 8920s from a large, US-based incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC). Media reports suggest it could be either AT&T or Verizon (News - Alert).
As a result, the shares of the software company were spiraling up six percent in a down day on Tuesday on Wall Street. The Investors.com report shows that in the afternoon trading on Tuesday, Procera shares were near 22.40. As per this report, the stock hit a five-year high of 25.99 on July 3.
According to Procera, these systems will support detailed subscriber-aware traffic analysis and reporting across much of the carrier’s fixed-line broadband network. The carrier selected Procera’s IPE systems due to their ability to develop fine-grained subscriber usage profiles in real-time for a large number of active subscribers generating very high data traffic volumes, said the software supplier.
The company believes that it won the contract because of its ability to help clients keep better track of user traffic on their networks. In a statement, Procera's vice president of sales for the Americas, David Ahee said, "In an ever-changing broadband usage environment, it is critical for service providers to understand how consumer behaviors are evolving." He added, "ILEC customers are staying online longer and their usage patterns are increasingly diverse making network planning more challenging."
The company said that its PacketLogic Report Studio gives service providers the network visibility they need to create highly accurate subscriber usage profiles. This software is provided as part of the PacketLogic Intelligence Center, enabling all network operators to drill down into their network traffic and achieve detailed understanding of subscriber, device, application, and location-based analytics as required.
