Sandvine's Success in Wireless Market Continues

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 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 five new customer wins, including three new wireless operators.

Sandvine has won initial deployments at:

  • two wireless operators in North America, including one WiMax service provider;
  • a wireless operator located in Latin America, won through one of Sandvine's strategic partnerships with global network equipment vendors;
  • a DSL operator in New Zealand;
  • a cable operator in Poland.

Sandvine's Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) hardware and related software allow service providers to create intelligent broadband networks through network policy control. Sandvine's solutions detect network conditions that trigger policies within the network to help service providers enhance subscribers' Internet experience. Sandvine's new customers exemplify the diverse benefits offered by network policy control.

"One of our new wireless customers will use a Sandvine solution to identify its prepaid customers whose service has expired and redirect them to a customer service site where they can conveniently extend their service term," said Tom Donnelly, Sandvine co-founder, EVP marketing and sales. "Our new DSL customer will use our solution to guarantee that, in times of congestion, subscribers receive the best quality interactive experience possible."

Sandvine offers its customers a sophisticated end-to-end network policy control solution that allows service providers to accurately understand and optimize network performance and provide policy-based management to address congestion, add new services, mitigate malicious traffic and enhance customer service.
