Sandvine Building Momentum in Asia
Over $5 million in follow-on orders from a tier-1, plus two new customer wins in the region
Waterloo, ON; September 11, 2012 –Sandvine, (TSX:SVC; AIM:SAND) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that it has received over $5 million in Network Policy Control expansion orders for a tier-1 customer in its Asia Pacific sales region. During its third quarter, Sandvine won seven new service provider customers, including two from the Asia Pacific sales region.
“Our dedication to the Asian region has paid off,” said Tom Donnelly, COO, Sales and Global Services Sandvine. “We have a significant local presence and several strong regional partnerships that have helped us understand the market and win a number of tier-1 customers. We see more near-term opportunities both with this customer and the top-five Asian operator we announced in May.”
The tier-1 Asian customer expanded its deployment with Sandvine due in part to the Company’s proven support for identifying and applying policy on IPv6 traffic, and Sandvine’s Service Creation capabilities, which fit the operator’s vision for future service differentiation. Orders from Asian service providers in the quarter related to a variety of Network Policy Control use cases, including Sandvine’s market-leading Network Analytics, Traffic Management and Traffic Steering for Media Optimization.
