Procera: Multi $M Order for 100 GE DPI Platforms


Procera PL 20000
The migration to 100 GE links on DPI gear continues, with announcements by the leading vendors (see "Sandvine: $5M Repeated Order for the 100GE Platform by US MSO" - here, "Allot: 2 Orders, $5M" - here and "Multi-Million$ DPI Win for Procera in Europe (w/100G)" - here).

Procera Networks announced more 100GE orders for "Several-million dollars". The vendor has ".. received several-million dollars of orders from Tier 1 operators for 100GE-equipped PacketLogic™ 20000 Platform [see "Vendor Review: Procera Launches 100GE DPI Device and Shares Market Insights" - here]

These deployments will leverage the 100GE interfaces deployed in existing or new PL20000 systems delivering Subscriber Experience solutions for fixed and mobile operators. Most of the revenue from these orders is expected to be recognized in the fourth quarter of 2014". 

Andy Lovit [pictured], SVP Worldwide Sales, Procera said: “The PL20000 has been selected by multiple operators over the past year due to the capability to easily add 100GE interfaces. Network operators are beginning to deploy subscriber experience and analytics solutions on 100GE instead of 10GE interfaces, and the PL20000 has segment-leading port density and performance for 100GE networks.”

ConteXtream Adds OpenDaylight-based, Carrier-Grade SDN Fabric for NFV


ConteXtream announced the launch of "ContexNet 4.0, the first commercially-available OpenDaylight-based, carrier-grade software-defined networking (SDN) fabric for network functions virtualization (NFV).

Taking advantage of OpenDaylight, OpenStack, OpenFlow and other industry standards, ContexNet 4.0 provides unsurpassed scale, supporting millions of subscribers with customized service profiles, as well as the resiliency, high-availability and extendibility requirements for carriers’ unique network needs. This complies with the Internet Engineering Tasks Force (IETF) horizontal standard interfaces for network virtualization allowing operators to create programmable networks that are not only flexible and self-healing, but also have a high degree of consistency. The solution also allows for geographically dispersed sites to be unified and operate as a single network".

Nachman Shelef [pictured], CEO, ConteXtream said: “Today’s wireless carriers are facing a tipping point. They need to innovate beyond their traditional service model or become the latest commodity industry .. The cost of increased traffic without corresponding growth in ARPU has tightened profit margins for carriers, making it harder to continue building up the network to meet future needs and investing in R&D to identify and launch new services. ContexNet 4.0 allows service providers to optimize their network to meet traffic demands, control costs and introduce new services so they can open up new revenue streams”.
