Long-term Supply Contract Includes Deployment of new PacketLogic PL20000
FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012—Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced a new multi-million dollar contract to provide a Western European Tier 1 incumbent service provider with Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) solutions based on Procera’s award-winning PacketLogic™ platforms. This new service provider customer selected the PacketLogic PL20000 following extensive competitive product evaluation and testing that included many stand-alone and integrated competitors. The PL20000 is the industry’s highest performing IPE system with up to 320 Gbps of throughput configurable per platform. Procera expects to begin to recognize the revenue from an initial order in the first half of 2013.
"This is a very significant win for our company and validates the need for high performance as service providers move to 100 Gbps in their core,” said James Brear, CEO of Procera. “The PacketLogic PL20000 is the ideal choice to meet their business analytics needs and enable innovative policy-based services. Because of the PL20000’s industry leading throughput density, our solution makes it possible for this expansive customer to deploy the extensive network coverage needed with a fraction of the number of systems competitive offerings proposed.”
IDC reported that for 2011, end user generated fixed broadband Internet traffic volume reached a worldwide average bandwidth consumption of 26 GB per end user each month. IDC forecasts the demand for bandwidth to increase to 120 GB per end user per month by the end of 20151.
Network operators worldwide face this huge growth in broadband traffic volumes and are looking to add analytics that transform how they optimize their network infrastructure investments and extend their business models to add incremental revenue streams. The key to the realization of these operator goals is to make their networks more intelligent. This intelligence not only enables operators to monitor bandwidth usage but lets them see in real-time the characteristics of broadband traffic generated by their subscribers, and then profile usage in order to create new services that benefit subscribers.
