Procera Networks (News - Alert), a company that delivers intelligent policy enforcement solutions, received a $1.5 million follow-on order from a top North American MSO which includes the delivery of Procera's PacketLogic 8920 platform.
"Cable operators face a highly competitive landscape," David Ahee, vice president of Sales Americas at Procera, said in a "They require sophisticated network analysis tools to ensure a high QoE for their subscribers, while enabling engineers to evolve the network to meet these demands and optimize their infrastructure investments. Without detailed network traffic analysis, cable operators risk delivering sub-standard services that can result in customer churn," Ahee added.
Procera’s PL8920 is noted to support Procera's PacketLogic Intelligence Center with PacketLogic Report Studio that provides network operators with a detailed understanding of subscriber, device, application, and location-based analytics. PacketLogic Report Studio delivers print-ready reports, including executive overviews, detailed technical analysis, and even the performance of different content delivery networks, which enables operators to dramatically increase subscriber QoE.
PL8920 offers service providers chassis-level performance at appliance-level pricing. These systems support detailed subscriber-aware traffic analysis and reporting throughout cable networks to maintain a high quality of experience for consumers while optimizing network resources.
It is an 2RU appliance supporting up to 50 Gbps of network traffic throughput accessible through six modular I/O slots that are configurable with up to 12 x 10GE or 24 x 1GE interfaces. This configuration represents 25 Gbps of throughput per rack unit, setting a new industry benchmark for IPE/DPI platform throughput density.
