Procera announced today the addition of a new 100GE-optimized I/O module for our existing PacketLogic PL20000 platform. Read the full press release here: Procera Networks Upgrades PL20000 Platform to Industry Leading 600 Gbps Throughput.
As a Director of Product Management for Procera, I’m really excited about this new addition to the PacketLogic family of products. Why do I think the PL20000 is so great? Well for starters, concurrent connection counts have quadrupled and the throughput is now up to 600 Gbps per chassis, with multi-system performance scaling up to 10 Tbps. This is an industry first – no other company has been able to deliver 600 Gbps in a single chassis and I’m excited to be part of the team at Procera that has done it. Reaching speeds of 600 Gbps means that the PL20000 can handle bandwidth-intensive applications, running concurrently on a variety of devices and help ensure a great user experience.
Additionally, the increased capacity of the new 100GE line cards for the PL20000 simplifies deployments allowing operators to ensure a great experience online for their subscribers.
With the increased performance and scale, our customers are able to increase their subscriber base while keeping pace with the growing bandwidth demands of existing subscribers. As network traffic continues to grow at a rapid pace, the PL20000 will help provide insights into the network for major network operators at exceptional speeds. As more subscribers move to LTE and 4G networks, they are demanding faster access to support multiple mobile applications running simultaneously on their devices. The PL20000 will help manage bandwidth-hungry application so subscribers will continue to receive a great experience online while using multiple applications concurrently. Drew Sproul of Billing and OSS World earlier this year wrote about these trends and the value of products like Procera’s to network operators. (See his full article: The Growing Value of Deep-Packet Inspection to Operators.)
This is an exciting time for us at Procera as we continue to add new products and deliver solutions which allow large mobile operators to ensure a high quality of experience (QoE) for their customers while providing them with the insights to create new service offerings that not only satisfy customers, but guarantee these services can be delivered reliably.
Bottom line, we want everyone to have a great online experience whether they’re surfing the web or watching streaming videos and the PL20000 will help operators deliver that quality of experience (QoE) to their subscribers.
