Company wins 25 new customers

WATERLOO, ON, Dec. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for fixed and mobile operators, today announced that it has received a follow-on order of over $5 million from a Tier 1 North American fixed line operator that first became a customer in 2007.

Additionally, Sandvine announced that it won a record 25 new communications service provider (CSP) customers during its fourth quarter of 2013, including eight from the recently announced Latin American Tier 1 operator group.

The $5 million follow-on order represents an expansion of the operator's deployment of Sandvine's Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) and Service Delivery Engine (SDE) to support business intelligence and traffic optimization use cases. The order was received in Sandvine's fourth quarter of 2013.

"Our latest Global Internet Phenomena Report revealed that streaming audio and video now accounts for over two-thirds of fixed network traffic during peak period." said Tom Donnelly, COO, Sales and Global Services, Sandvine. "This customer has chosen to expand its deployment of Sandvine's Network Policy Control platform so that they can gain additional insight into the use of streaming applications, and measure their subscribers' quality of experience when streaming audio and video."

Sandvine's market-leading business intelligence products help operators to understand current and future trends in consumer experience and resource utilization so that operators can proactively decide where to allocate resources and incremental network investment.  Sandvine's traffic optimization products use network data to apply business rules that protect subscribers' quality of experience under all network conditions.

The 25 new customers that Sandvine won during its fourth quarter span 22 countries, and offer their services over mobile, DSL, cable, fixed wireless and fibre network access infrastructures.

"Sandvine's customer base has grown to become well diversified, both geographically and in terms of the types of access networks we serve," said Donnelly. "Sandvine leverages the same hardware platform and software solutions across networks so that converged, fixed-mobile operators can offer unified services and network policies for all of their subscribers."

Sandvine's success with both existing and new customers globally has led industry analyst Infonetics to identify the company as the leader in its field.
