Network policy control vendor Sandvine announced this morning that it had received a $5 million expansion order from a large North American cable operator that has been a customer since 2003.
The follow on order represented the ongoing expansion of the operator's deployment of business intelligence and traffic optimization solutions. Sandvine expects to recognize most of the associated revenue in the first half of fiscal 2014.
While Sandvine didn’t name the operator, it solutions are used by seven of the top 10 cable MSOs in North America, representing 74 percent of the region's cable subscribers. Past announced customers for Sandvine include Comcast and GCI.
"Recently, our network analytics product has been a key component in enhancing the North American cable market's understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by popular video applications like Netflix and Hulu,” said Tom Donnelly, Sandvine's COO, sales and global services.
