Network solutions provider Sandvine has won what the company calls a significant initial order from an unnamed, converged Asian service provider, whose broadband network ranks among the five largest on the continent.
“In one of the most penetrated broadband markets in the world, with some of the fastest broadband connection speeds, this customer ranks right near the top," said Tom Donnelly, COO, sales and global services, Sandvine.
The Asian operator bought Sandvine’s Service Delivery Engine, Usage Management and Traffic Management products and several units of its PTS 24000 hardware platform. Sandvine says it was chosen for its ability to implement highly scalable, real-time policy across both the data plane and control plane, leading to both operator cost savings and increased subscriber quality of experience.
The initial deployment represents a limited portion of the operator’s service area, with opportunities for expansion in the future.
Waterloo, Ontario-based Sandvine will be on hand at CTIA Wireless in New Orleans next week.
