It’s designed in response to demand for better understanding of subscriber behaviors and how this impacts the OTT services they use, said Procera Networks. The new solution highlights the growing need from operators for broader and deeper contextual insights about network traffic and subscriber experience. This is made possible via Procera’s eVolution Virtual Experience Probe. By focusing on subscriber service and application usage behavior, rather than simply on characteristics of overall network performance, the eVolution probe can pull much deeper insights from subscriber traffic which can then be used for advanced QoE management and the delivery of highly differentiated offerings.
eVolution is a virtualized probe that runs as a VNF on industry standard hardware. Brocade’s Envision Fabric network visibility technology combines hardware and software packet brokers with a scalable, software-based session director. Brocade also offers a full-featured Virtual Packet Broker.
The Envision Fabric portfolio brings the scalability, agility and flexibility of NFV to network visibility, and provides flow aggregation, replication, load-balancing, filtering and traffic optimization capabilities with an open architecture, said Procera.

Our work with Brocade really goes to demonstrate the versatility of our PacketLogic/V software for network and subscriber analytics. Operators are relying on Procera’s network and subscriber analytics more than ever to prioritize how they go about delivering a solid customer experience.
Ravi Medikonda, VP/GM of Network Visibility and Analytics at Brocade
Our work with Procera is an important part of our plan to provide our customers clear visibility into Over-The-Top (OTT) application traffic on their networks. As mobile networks evolve towards 5G, there is an important need for operators to provide differentiated offerings that cooperate with OTT applications.
