WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) -

Attention: Technology Editors

Sandvine, (TSX:SVC)(AIM:SAND) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for cable, DSL, FTTx, fixed wireless and mobile operators, today announced that it has won six new mobile service provider customers and two new DSL operator customers. The customers come from the United States, Southern Europe, Central America, Australia and Southeast Asia.

Sandvine now has over 30 mobile operator customers from more than a dozen countries, which together represent over 200 million subscribers. Data traffic, the traffic of interest for Sandvine's solutions, still represents a relatively small percentage of mobile subscribers' total usage but is the fastest growing category. The vast majority of Sandvine's customers in the mobile market have been won since the beginning of 2008, a reflection of the rapid acceleration in mobile data consumption.

"We continue to execute on our strategy to be the leading supplier of network policy control solutions across all broadband access technologies," said Dave Caputo, Sandvine's president and chief executive officer. "Cable companies adopted network policy control solutions first, and we are the established leader in that market. DSL and mobile broadband providers represent the second and third wave of adoption and we have quickly established ourselves as a leader in those markets too."

Sandvine's solutions will help its new mobile operator customers gain much-needed visibility into the data traffic traversing their networks, manage the unprecedented traffic caused by recent data growth, and plan and execute the delivery of new service offerings to attract and retain subscribers and create sustainable mobile data business models.
