FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced it has secured a multi-million dollar initial order from a Tier 1 Middle Eastern converged Fixed line and Mobile network operator. The operator is experiencing significant traffic growth across both fixed and mobile networks, and selected Procera to provide growth capability in the network core. The operator selected Procera's PacketLogic PL10000 platform for the network deployment throughout its footprint. Procera expects to recognize the revenue from this initial order in the first half of 2013.
"Converged Fixed/Mobile operators are looking for Intelligent Policy Enforcement solutions that can support both fixed and mobile deployments simultaneously," said Paul Gracie, vice president of sales, EMEA at Procera. "This requires flexible solutions that can scale performance as well as subscribers and service capacity, and this operator selected Procera to replace their existing solution in order to meet their rapidly growing network demands."
The operator initially evaluated and selected the PL10000 for its traffic management capabilities to ensure a high quality of experience for its customers. The deployment has evolved to take advantage of the sophisticated network and subscriber analytics provided by the PacketLogic Intelligence Center and the PacketLogic Report Studio to create Intelligent Charging solutions across both fixed and mobile networks. This operator will also be utilizing Procera's ContentLogic product to perform content analytics and offer value-added services to their subscribers while offering Intelligent Charging services based on 3GPP standards. Using ContentLogic and other Procera analytics, the operator is able to quickly determine the services that are popular with its subscribers, and design new sticky service plans and marketing campaigns for its customers. The operator is also utilizing the Advanced Traffic Steering capabilities of the PL10000, steering specific subscriber and application traffic to value added service solutions.

The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
