Ongoing focus on encrypted traffic identification the difference maker
San Jose, Calif., 25 June, 2019 — Sandvine, a leading provider of Network Intelligence solutions, announced that it has won a new major Tier 1 customer logo in Asia, displacing the incumbent vendor in a fixed network deployment. The replacement of the incumbent was driven by fundamental data quality issues and the failure to deliver on value commitments for the customer as more traffic became encrypted and the network utilization exceeded 100Gbps. This order was received in the first quarter of 2019.
“We are very pleased with this award. It underscores the continued strength of our core solutions and innovation investments as well as the integrity of ‘delivering on committed capabilities’ throughout our commercial engagement. As network operators continue to address the significant challenges around volumetric growth of data and video traffic, Sandvine leads the market in meeting the needs with the best data throughput performance, while additionally maintaining the industry’s best data quality and accuracy,” said Lyn Cantor, President and CEO of Sandvine.
Sandvine is able to deliver effective congestion management as individual user speeds increase and the aggregate bandwidth needed in several sites exceeds 100Gbps. This ability to scale not only in bandwidth, but also with future use cases on the same platform, were some of the deciding factors in the operator selecting Sandvine to replace their incumbent vendor.
As shown in the Sandvine Global Internet Phenomena Report, video traffic dominates networks in APAC, and the operator wanted to ensure that their network optimization solution had the benefit of the latest application identification technology to classify over-the-top (OTT) traffic. The sophisticated and flexible congestion management, fair usage, and subscriber identification options within the Fair Usage and Congestion Management use case prompted the operator to choose Sandvine. The operator also plans to use the Analytics capabilities of the Sandvine solution, and will expand into a number of use cases in this area in future expansions.
