Joint Solution Will Enable Mobile and Fixed Operators to Offer Advanced Services and Enhanced Subscriber Experience
Boston, MA, 11 February 2009 - Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization and revenue generation solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI), and Camiant, the leading provider of policy control and application assurance technology, announced today their partnership to deliver a complete DPI and policy control solution for fixed and mobile broadband networks. This agreement is expected to strengthen both companies' offerings by enabling the deployment of innovative application and subscriber aware, tiered and premium services, controlling bandwidth utilization and enhancing Quality of Experience (QoE).
The joint solution combines Allot's accurate, DPI-based, application identification and Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) capabilities with Camiant's best of breed Multimedia Policy Engine (MPE) which is fully compliant with 3GPP's Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF)* specifications. This integrated offering will enable operators to better control and manage network usage, and as a result, prioritize time-sensitive applications, create new service plans, and carefully control peak and total bandwidth utilization based on a number of key conditions.
"The collaboration between Allot and Camiant represents our commitment to the mobile broadband market," stated Azi Ronen, Allot's Executive Vice President for Corporate Development. "As this market becomes more competitive, the need for DPI and policy control becomes more essential, both in order to differentiate between operators and to enhance their data services."
"Every fixed and mobile broadband operator has made it clear that simply building bigger pipes isn't sufficient to support the service growth and application explosion they are experiencing," said Susie Kim Riley, Founder and CTO of Camiant. "Operators are recognizing the importance of harmonizing the behavior of the DPIs and the access gateways, with the needs of the applications and the subscriber, through coordinated policy control."
Camiant and Allot deliver innovative and intelligent solutions that allow network operators to provide high quality services in an increasingly congested world, so that subscribers can have a better overall broadband experience.
