Allot Communications has secured orders from three of the world’s top ten telecommunication operators to assist in their LTE network rollouts. All three orders are from existing customers, including two in Europe and one in the United States. These operators will use the Allot Service Gateway as part of their initial LTE deployments. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Allot recently announced availability of its pure-play, 3GPP-compliant Traffic Detection Function (TDF) for LTE networks for helping operators analyze subscriber behavior and monetize their broadband networks.
TDF – part of the 3GPP Release 11 LTE standard – provides network visibility to better analyze and respond to broadband traffic. Allot said its TDF-enabled Allot Service Gateway can be used by operators to monetize OTT traffic by leveraging application awareness and transaction information in order to deploy innovative pricing plans, drive new service revenues and increase customer loyalty.
“TDF brings with it the opportunity for carriers to implement business intelligence analytics and application-specific charging policies. This type of dedicated functionality is critical for carriers looking to add value to OTT providers like Facebook and Skype,” said Andrei Elefant, VP Marketing & Product Management of Allot Communications. “Allot is a market leader in TDF, and we are leading the change in standardizing this important technology to simplify operator networks and bring our customers the most powerful analytics tools available.”
