FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2013) - PROCERA NETWORKS, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced an initial multi-year contract from Orange Switzerland. The initial order is to provide Procera's leading edge Intelligent Policy Enforcement solutions, specifically the PL8820, PacketLogic™ Intelligence Center (PIC) and the PacketLogic Subscriber Manager (PSM), for deployment throughout Orange's network as a replacement for an existing solution. Procera's solutions will be used to allow Orange to offer high value subscriber services. Procera expects to recognize most of the revenue related to this order in the first half of 2013.
"We selected Procera due to the strong value proposition offered by the PacketLogic solutions for personalized services," said Johan Andsjo, CEO of Orange Switzerland. "The solution that we are deploying today will enable us to deliver new services to our subscribers, increase our competitiveness through innovation and exceed our growth plans for bandwidth with a scalable platform."
"Mobile operators want to offer personalized services that meet the demand of their subscribers," said Paul Gracie, senior vice president of Sales, EMEA at Procera. "Procera has proven our ability to enable unique service plans for European mobile operators, and we continue to see this as a strong market demand."
Orange chose Procera due to the strong performance and scalability of the PL8820 platform, which supports up to 30Gbps of performance in a 2RU form factor for millions of subscribers. The PSM was a deciding factor in Procera's selection, as Orange wanted a great deal of flexibility in the creation and provisioning of innovative service plans that meet their customers' needs, both today and in the future, and needed a solution that could scale both for subscribers as well as services.
