Procera Debuts 30 Gbps Policy Enforcement Platform

Procera Networks launched its next generation, PacketLogic PL8000 Intelligent Policy Enforcement series. The new PL8820 delivers 30 Gbps capacity in a 2RU form factor, doubling the capacity of the company's best selling IPE product. The PL8820 handles up to 2 million subscribers and 20 million flows per appliance. The system is already being deployed in production networks, including by 3 Scandinavia, part of the Hutchison Telecommunications group.

Procera Networks said enforcing precision policies based on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) has become more relevant than ever as broadband operators fight backhaul congestion while at the same time introducing new service tiers and ensuring profitability in a highly competitive market. It is becoming a real challenge to continue add more users, devices and applications whilst continuing to maintain a quality service.

Procera's product portfolio contains appliances and chassis that cover the capacity need from edge to core of mobile networks. All PacketLogic series run the same operating software and can co-exist in the same network, delivering the same feature-set and standards compliance for DPI-based policy enforcement (PCEF).

Procera also recently announced IPv6 support across its platforms.
