Tier 1 Global Operator Selects Procera’s Intelligent Policy Enforcement Solutions to Provide Network Analytics, Optimization
FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 18, 2012—Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced that VimpelCom (NYSE: VIP) has deployed Procera’s PacketLogicTM platforms in nearly 43 cities throughout Russia. Last year, VimpelCom purchased Procera’s Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) solutions to provide network visibility, analytics, optimization and bandwidth management. Most of the corresponding revenue was recognized by Procera last year. VimpelCom is one of the world’s largest integrated telecommunications service operators, providing voice and data services through a range of traditional and broadband, mobile and fixed technologies.
VimpelCom, in conjunction with technology system integrator Jet Infosystems, performed operational and laboratory testing using Procera’s PacketLogic Intelligence Center (PIC) solutions to gain “live” traffic analytics for their extensive network, and found that over 50% of broadband resources were being consumed by peer-to-peer file sharing. The two companies used the results of this research to design a solution that specifically meets VimpelCom’s unique requirements.
“The company’s strategic infrastructure investment is the first Russian DPI project of such scale,” said Paul Gracie, vice president of sales EMEA at Procera Networks. “Procera’s solutions provide them with the real-time network visibility and analytics required to improve performance.”
“VimpelCom’s intercity backbone spans all of Russia and is unique in its size and topology,” said VimpelCom’s Director of the Transport Network, Alexey Sapunov. “We needed a partner to work with us in developing a solution that specifically meets our dynamic bandwidth management needs, and provides remote analytics and traffic management to cost-effectively optimize our massive infrastructure. Procera’s granular visibility and intelligent policy enforcement solutions allow us to deliver a high Quality of Experience for our customers.”
The European operator implemented a number of Procera’s IPE platforms and PacketLogic Intelligence Center (PIC) solutions including several PL10000 series platforms, PL 8000s, and PICs plus bypass switches for additional network resilience and availability. The PL10000 series platforms provide up to 120Gbps of throughput in a single system and can scale up to 2Tbps in a multi-system.
