MSO Awards Multi-Million Dollar Initial Order for PacketLogic PL8920 Platforms
FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 18, 2012—Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced it has received a multi-million dollar initial order from a Tier 1 multi-system operator (MSO) in the Middle East. This operator serves cable subscribers across its countrywide footprint as part of its residential triple play service offerings. This new service provider customer selected the PacketLogicTM PL8920 following extensive competitive product evaluation and testing that included many stand-alone and integrated competitors. Procera expects to begin to recognize the majority of revenue from this initial order in the fourth quarter of 2012.
"This MSO has seen dramatic increases in bandwidth usage on its network over the past two years and selected our Intelligent Policy Enforcement solution because it has proven it can scale to meet the kind of growth the operator is seeing in its network," said Paul Gracie, vice president of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East (EMEA) at Procera. "This customer was also looking for an analytics and enforcement solution that could help to deliver a very high QoE across its large subscriber population."
According to Analysys Mason's latest forecast report for the region, The Middle East and North Africa telecoms market: trends and forecasts 2012–2017, overall telecoms retail revenue in the region will increase from its 2011 level of USD 70.3 billion, to more than USD 96.3 billion by 2017. Network operators worldwide face huge growth in broadband traffic volumes and are looking to add analytics that transform how they optimize their network infrastructure investments and extend their business models to add incremental revenue streams. The key to the realization of these operator goals is to make their networks more intelligent. This intelligence not only enables operators to monitor bandwidth usage but also lets them see in real-time the characteristics of broadband traffic generated by their subscribers, and then profile that usage in order to create new services that subscribers demand.
