Procera Networks Unveils Next-Gen PL 10000 Series at Mobile World Congress
The new PL10000 series ships with flow processing line cards that is capable of boosting an impressive 120 Gbps per chassis in actual deployment configuration with traffic classification and policy enforcement capabilities enabled.
"Our goal is to maximize performance," said Alexander Haväng, CTO of Procera Networks (News - Alert), in a press release. "Similar to our IPv6 announcement a few weeks ago, this reflects our leadership position in the technological evolution as we respond to customer requests with innovation."
In today's social networking society, scalable subscriber count is as crucial as speed for mobile operators. Also, supporting subscriber growth and the changing user behavior is critical to mobile operators who more and more are relying on data services as the primary revenue contributor.
In a single chassis, the PacketLogic PL10014 scales to 10 million subscribers. For higher performance, multiple chassis can be clustered. They can also be supported by PacketLogic's pertinent and non-disruptive support for asymmetric traffic management and bi-directional traffic identification over multiple links and even multiple PacketLogic systems.
To increase capacity to the performance levels above, existing PL10000 customers can upgrade their chassis with the new flow processing line cards.
Procera will be exhibiting the new PL10000 series at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert). The company has also introduced the world's fastest Intelligent Policy Enforcement appliance. The PL8820 delivers a remarkable 30 Gbps capacity in a 2RU form factor and announced Technology Alliance with F5 Networks (News - Alert) to deliver highly scalable traffic management for mobile operators.
In related news, Procera Networks Inc., the Intelligent Policy Enforcement Company, has signed a technology alliance agreement with F5 Networks, the global leader in Application Delivery Networking.
