Procera Launches Virtualized PacketLogic Solutions
Delivers the First Comprehensive Carrier-Class NFV Solution for
Intelligent Policy Enforcement Based on ETSI Network Functions
FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/13 -- Procera Networks, Inc.
(NASDAQ: PKT), the global Internet Intelligence company, today
announced the launch of Virtualized PacketLogic(TM) solutions based
on the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Network
Functions Virtualization (NFV) standards. The complete
PacketLogic(TM) solution will be available to network operators in a
virtualized "appliance" package, reducing the cost of acquisition and
ownership for Internet Intelligence solutions.
"The main promise of NFV is to benefit from commodity pricing of IT
hardware, reduced power consumption and moving to a much faster
service delivery method based on downloading software appliances as
opposed to installing new hardware appliances," said Paul Veitch,
chief network strategist at British Telecom.
"Virtualization is a natural evolution of the PacketLogic
architecture," said Alexander Havang, chief technology officer for
Procera. "Procera has always maintained hardware independence, and
has delivered the highest performing solutions available on the
market using off-the-shelf hardware technology. We have used
virtualization extensively internally, and our customers are asking
to deploy this in their networks today. Speed to market with new
services and the ability to deliver targeted niche services also
becomes a much simpler and more rapid process."
"We've been noting a definite interest among operators toward
virtualizing their policy decision and enforcement functions as a way
to reduce costs and bring services to market more quickly," said
Shira Levine, Directing Analyst, Service Enablement and Subscriber
Intelligence at Infonetics Research. "We believe that this trend will
accelerate as Software Defined Networking (SDN) begins to gain
traction, driving demand for DPI technology that can mine
intelligence from the network and feed it up to the control layer."
The Virtual PacketLogic solutions will offer the same software
functionality as the current hardware platforms used by hundreds of
network operators worldwide. Any hardware solution that can run
standard-based virtualization software can be deployed with the
PacketLogic solution modules (PSM, PRE, and PIC), including
deployments that run all of the modules on a single hardware
platform. Furthermore the performance and scalability of the
solutions can easily be upgraded by adding more CPU and memory to the
virtual machine. The Virtual PacketLogic solutions can be used for
any portion of the lifecycle of a Policy Enforcement deployment from
the initial functional evaluation, trial deployment, service rollout,
bandwidth expansion, or geographic expansion, lowering the cost of
acquisition of IPE technology as well as the operational cost. The
Virtual PacketLogic solutions will be available for trial in the
third quarter of 2013, and are expected to be generally available by
the end of 2013.
