Procera Networks bags NFV deal from Vodafone Egypt

Vodafone Egypt
Procera Networks has bagged a NFV deal from telecom operator Vodafone Egypt to enhance customer experience for its fixed and mobile subscribers.

Vodafone Egypt, the largest mobile operator in Egypt, has 39 million customers.

“Procera’s virtual solutions delivered on the promise of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) for Vodafone Egypt today, enabling us to accelerate our NFV deployment timelines,” said Osama Siad, technology director of Vodafone Egypt.

“Procera’s PacketLogic solutions, especially ScoreCard, enable us to dynamically deploy analytics capacity to ensure high quality broadband experience across our entire network footprint,” Osama Siad said.

Procera said its analytics solutions take advantage of visibility provided by PacketLogic’s DRDL engine, which identifies traffic signatures and makes it possible to deliver fine-grained application identification despite the increasing use of encryption on the Internet.

Procera says that the ScoreCard technology provides a unique view of quality, with high frequency measurements of quality in categories that subscribers can relate to. These include: web surfing, streaming video, social media, real-time gaming, upload, download, and voice applications.

By analyzing results from ScoreCard, the data can be used to guide investment into network capacity and idenitify service creation opportunities for the network planning teams at Vodafone Egypt.

“Our focus on virtualization use cases for fixed and mobile network will enable both operators and subscribers to benefit from their broadband networks,” said Lyn Cantor, president and CEO at Procera Networks.
