SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/13 --   Guavus Inc., a
leading provider of big data analytics solutions, today announced it
has raised an additional $9 million in funding from new investors
Goldman Sachs and TransLink Capital. Guavus will use the funds to
continue to expand its core products, scale its operations, and
pursue select acquisitions in support of increasing global demand for
its big data analytics solutions. 
"Guavus has shown tremendous growth and innovation with carriers.
With 40 percent of the world's mobile data traffic due to be carried
over Asia-based networks by 2016 we expect APAC to be a strong market
for Guavus. We are excited to support Guavus' global expansion by
leveraging our resources in the APAC region," said Toshi Otani,

For the past six years, Guavus has been pioneering holistic big data
analytics solutions for tier-one communications service providers
with great success. The company has developed a rich and growing
suite of decisioning applications that have pre-built intelligence
for faster time to insights. These valuable insights, which span
across network, device, content and subscriber analytics, have
allowed carriers to both realize cost savings by optimizing network
capacity and increase revenues by delivering a better consumer
experience. 
"Guavus has created a new data fabric that fuses disparate sources of
data streaming on the network with existing information systems to
provide contextually-aware decisioning applications that can be used
to trigger business processes at the exact moment of need. Our focus
on rapid analysis first yields a high return on investment for
customers," said Anukool Lakhina, founder and CEO of Guavus. This
round of investment positions us for long term growth as we look to
expand our proven solutions globally."
