Deep packet inspection vendor Procera Networks announced today that it has received a $6 million second follow-on order from a top-five North American MSO.
The second order with the unnamed MSO came on the heels of a $2 million order in April. Procera's PacketLogic technology is being deployed in all of the MSO's geographies, replacing a leading competitor. Procera first won the operator's business last year and said it expects further growth as the operator expands its footprint and continues the competitive replacement.
The follow-on order consisted of Procera's PacketLogic PL8720 series devices.
"This significant second follow-on order reflects Procera's strength in mature markets and the growing importance of reporting and analytics capabilities for this customer," said Cam Cullen, vice president of global marketing at Procera. "MSOs need to understand what type of traffic and applications are driving network usage. They require reliable and detailed analytics that they can use to formulate new service plans and target demographics."
In addition, Procera is working with the MSO to enhance its customer portals, thereby enabling a more interactive relationship with customers.
