Procera Launches 100G Intelligent Policy Enforcement

Procera Networks launched its new 100GE-capable Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) platform.

The PacketLogic 20000 boasts a capacity of 320Gbps per system and up to 5 Tbps per cluster, with support for up to 72 ports of 10GE and four ports of 100GE interfaces. The PL20000 is a 14/15RU AC/DC combination system.It supports up to 10 million active subscribers and 120 million active flows, with the ability to enforce services and collect charging information on every active flow in the system.

The new system is designed to work Procera’s PacketLogic Subscriber Management System to rapidly create innovative, sticky service offerings based on business analytics provided by the PacketLogic Report Studio. The PL20000 supports a full suite of policy enforcement capabilities, from content-aware service, congestion management, traffic prioritization, application-layer shaping, volume-based shaping, traffic steering and/or mirroring, and captive portals

Procera said one of its key differentiators is to provice radically simple tools to enable service providers to create personalized services – from the analytics tools of PacketLogic Report Studio to the customer-defined Virtual Services, plus easy-to-create charging and service policies on the PacketLogic Subscriber Manager. The goal is to enable operators to create and define services on-the-fly, without requiring signature updates or new software.

“As consumers continue to be more dependent on their broadband connections, the stress on broadband networks will continue to grow. Even though the PL20000 system performance shatters industry benchmarks, the biggest leap forward for the PL20000 is the ability to utilize the solution for personalized service creation at a scale never before possible for broadband operators of all types,�? says Cam Cullen, VP of Global Marketing for Procera.

The PL20000 will be available in Q2 2012 for customer shipments.
