The PacketLogic 7000 series platforms set the industry benchmark for entry level appliances that enable network operators to gain insight into how their networks are performing and take action to improve the subscriber experience.

The PL7810 and PL7340 are ideal for network operators implementing congestion and traffic management at peering points or in their distributed access networks, as well as for higher education and enterprise networks. Their small form factor and low power requirements make it more easily deployable in decentralized networks than larger, more expensive chassis-based systems.



These compact (1RU) appliances offer a range of throughput speeds and capacities from 1 Gbps to 5 Gbps of network traffic throughput accessible through either 2 x 1000Base-T channel fixed form factor (PL7340) platform or three fixed 1000BASE-T Ethernet channels and two expansion slots, which can be populated with either dual or quad channel gigabit expansion modules (PL7810). The interface expansion modules are available with or without integrated support for internal bypass configurations, allowing for flexible network redundancy deployments. Both platforms also support high-availability options, including configuration synchronization and clustering.

Designed for entry-level network deployments, the PL7000 platforms offer the performance and capacity to handle many different personalized services in a policy enforcement configuration. This enables growth without sacrificing service flexibility removing limitations for subscriber provisioning, policy interactions, policy enforcement, charging, application identification, analytics, and congestion management that have constrained network services and profitability.

Powerful enforcement capabilities

The PL7000 platforms are turnkey hardware solutions optimized to support Sandvine's (PRE) PacketLogic Realtime Enforcer software, delivering unparalleled Active Network Intelligence capabilities to enhance the subscriber experience.

Capabilities supported include:

  • REAL-TIME DYNAMIC LIVEVIEW QUERY ENGINE AND PACKETLOGIC CLIENT enables sophisticated real-time forensics to manage quality of experience (QoE), network congestion, and network security issues.
  • DRDL™ (DATASTREAM RECOGNITION DEFINITION LANGUAGE) PROCESSING to identify properties of individual session flows in real time, enabling operators to create and define services on-the-fly.
  • POLICY-BASED TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CAPABILITIES, including asymmetric traffic control, traffic shaping and filtering, traffic flow classification and prioritization, traffic monitoring and packet re-write.
  • ADVANCED PACKET QUEUING, including parallel queuing to enable more flexible traffic management policies which ensure predictable delay and jitter enabling operators to meet their customers’ QoE expectations.
  • STATISTICS GATHERING for individual flows to enable real-time and historical reporting, including real-time quality of experience updates.
  • CONTENT INTELLIGENCE enables network operators, cloud providers, and high-speed enterprises to combine the policy management capabilities of PacketLogic with industry-leading URL content categorization functionality.
  • ADVANCED TRAFFIC STEERING that combines PacketLogic capabilities with Application Delivery Networking functionality to provide a single Application Delivery Controller solution with unmatched performance and scalability, enabling service chaining with subscriber, service plan, charging, and Layer 7 awareness.
  • EVENT BASED TRIGGERS that automatically change policy in response to specified real-time network traffic conditions by dynamically enabling DoS/DDoS connection limits, traffic shaping or filtering.
  • BGP INTEGRATION enables Peering and CDN visibility, including QoE metrics Support for Origin-AS and Transit analysis.
PL7000 Platform




Network integration

The PL7000 tightly integrates with other PacketLogic software within the operator’s core network to deliver analytics and enforcement solutions.

  • Actions are run directly on the PL7000 to perform intelligent policy enforcement. Congestion Management, Filtering, and Traffic Steering. In a mobile policy environment, the PL7000 acts as a 3GPP Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF).
  • Perspectives integration to support powerful intelligent policy enforcement at different subscriber, RAN, or other Perspective levels. The PL7000 gleans subscriber information during login to dynamically create policies, traffic control, or service packages for each user on the network. Other Perspectives enable fine-grained visibility and control for individual locations, content types, devices, etc.
  • Insights to provide rich intelligence and analytics visualization for networks, subscribers, devices, and application performance. The network intelligence gathered by deployed PL7000s enables operators to make informed business decisions on network conditions, congestion management, and innovative new services.
