Procera Networks introduced its PacketLogic 8960, a 2RU flexible Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) appliance for network deployments supporting high-density subscriber scenarios.The PacketLogic 8960 supports up to 70 Gbps of network traffic throughput accessible through 6 modular I/O slots supporting up to 12 x 10GE or 24 x 1GE channels. It supports up to three million active subscribers and 20 million active flows, with the ability to enforce policy on all concurrent flows in the system.
Procera said its new PL8960 is designed for both larger fixed broadband service provider deployments where traffic is aggregated and analyzed at the edge of the network, requiring high I/O density in a small form factor, and in the core network of more geographically compact service providers. The PL8960 is also ideally suited to LTE network deployments where mobile operators need dispersed, small footprint configurations that quickly and economically scale to millions of users as LTE coverage expands to support subscriber expansion.
“With the introduction of the PL8960, Procera Networks once again sets a new industry benchmark for implementing IPE capabilities that brings chassis-level scale, performance, and reliability into a space and energy efficient appliance form factor,” said Cam Cullen, vice president of Global Marketing for Procera Networks. “Our new PL8960 is a natural evolution of our highly regarded PL8920 platform that has been widely deployed by both fixed broadband service providers and mobile operators worldwide.”
