FREMONT, Calif. and MUMBAI, India, August 7, 2013 — Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global network intelligence company, today announced that Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications, has chosen its PacketLogicTM Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) systems to enhance its mobile network operator (MNO) managed services portfolio. The company selected Procera’s policy enforcement solution after a detailed evaluation of competitive products.
Tata Communications’ Hosted Policy Engine (HPE) is a management and enforcement platform which offers customers reduced complexity, costs and time for deployment and ongoing operations. The hosted implementation provides a pre-integrated best-of-breed policy control infrastructure solution on a “pay for consumption” basis. The platform enables service providers to granularly manage and monetise subscriber and application traffic across heterogeneous packet networks including CDMA, GSM, LTE, WiFi, and fixed broadband.
"Procera provides the detection, analysis and enforcement component that is one of the key elements of our HPE required to provide usage-based charging for operator-defined data policy applications. The company’s IPE system accurately classifies almost all information flows, including those which are often hard to track. The agile analysis and reporting capability offers our customers the ability to drill down from different angles for a thorough understanding of information flow consumption. This rich understanding and granular flow classification enables each provider to use our HPE to design and apply differentiated targeted policy control applications. These applications provide maximum value to each data subscriber and help generate exponential data revenue for the operator,” said John Landau, Senior Vice President of Technology and Services Evolution at Tata Communications.
Procera’s IPE system is 3GPP-compliant and equipped with standard interfaces, allowing for easy scalability to support millions of subscribers in MNO networks. PacketLogic solutions were selected by Tata Communications due the flexibility in the system to quickly configure advanced services and easily scale for large deployments, providing the optimal infrastructure for cloud-hosted and SDN-based policy management and enforcement services.
"This effort introduces a new business model to MNOs who want to quickly and economically compete with Tier 1 mobile operator service offerings, and gives us another way to monetise our core intellectual property. Procera’s solutions enable rapid monetisation for new services and makes it possible for mobile operators of all sizes to participate in the significant revenue generating opportunities created by data services worldwide," said James Brear, President and CEO of Procera Networks.
