Procera Networks Deployed by Tier 1 Middle Eastern Converged Fixed/Mobile Operator

Secures Multi-Million Dollar Initial Order to Replace Competitor's Products

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced it has secured a multi-million dollar initial order from a Tier 1 Middle Eastern converged Fixed line and Mobile network operator. The operator is experiencing significant traffic growth across both fixed and mobile networks, and selected Procera to provide growth capability in the network core. The operator selected Procera's PacketLogic™ PL10000 platform for the network deployment throughout its footprint. Procera expects to recognize the revenue from this initial order in the first half of 2013.

"Converged Fixed/Mobile operators are looking for Intelligent Policy Enforcement solutions that can support both fixed and mobile deployments simultaneously," said Paul Gracie, vice president of sales, EMEA at Procera. "This requires flexible solutions that can scale performance as well as subscribers and service capacity, and this operator selected Procera to replace their existing solution in order to meet their rapidly growing network demands."

The operator initially evaluated and selected the PL10000 for its traffic management capabilities to ensure a high quality of experience for its customers. The deployment has evolved to take advantage of the sophisticated network and subscriber analytics provided by the PacketLogic Intelligence Center and the PacketLogic Report Studio to create Intelligent Charging solutions across both fixed and mobile networks. This operator will also be utilizing Procera's ContentLogic product to perform content analytics and offer value-added services to their subscribers while offering Intelligent Charging services based on 3GPP standards. Using ContentLogic and other Procera analytics, the operator is able to quickly determine the services that are popular with its subscribers, and design new sticky service plans and marketing campaigns for its customers. The operator is also utilizing the Advanced Traffic Steering capabilities of the PL10000, steering specific subscriber and application traffic to value added service solutions.

According to Analysys Mason's latest forecast report for the region, The Middle East and North Africa telecoms market: trends and forecasts 2012-2017, Telecom revenue in the Middle East and North Africa is predicted to increase some 27 percent between 2012 and 2017, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5 percent, with revenue heading from $70.3 billion in 2011 to $96.4 billion in 2017. Mobile data is driving a lot of the growth, with handset data revenue predicted to jump 17.9 percent CAGR between 2012 and 2017.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
