Procera Networks, a leading Intelligent policy enforcement vendor, and Skyfire, a leader in mobile video optimization, have formed a collaboration on a joint solution to tackle the rapid growth of video traffic on global mobile networks. The two companies have made available a pre-integrated solution, which was field-trialed by a major European operator using Procera's PacketLogicTM Intelligent Policy Enforcement for advanced traffic steering and Skyfire's Rocket OptimizerTM for video content optimizatizion. The solution which is modeled on an open ICAP architecture is said to provide over 2 times the boost in network capacity versus competing solutions by optimizing virtually all types of video traffic – including network-clogging HD video.
“Skyfire’s partnership with Procera shows that NFV benefits can be realized today to prove out a virtualized, cloud-based network architecture,” commented Skyfire CEO Jeff Glueck. “Our joint solution is tailor-made for the new flexible, configurable, hyper-aware and QoE-centric network model.”
“The partnership with Skyfire provides mobile service providers with a best-of-breed video optimization solution that fully takes advantage of Procera’s intelligent policy enforcement capabilities,” said James Brear, president and CEO of Procera Networks. “Our ability to accurately identify all types of video traffic that we can divert to Skyfire for optimization gives our joint customers an extremely fast ROI on using our two products together.”Source - Procera Networks (Oct 23, 2013)
