Procera

Over a thousand networks around the world, both mobile & fixed operators from large to small, as well as educational institutions, leading global enterprises, network equipment vendors, and managed and analytics service providers, share Procera's vision: To create a world in which networks deliver exceptional, universal and seamless broadband services profitably, everywhere.

Procera's solutions structure broadband data, transform it into actionable intelligence, and empower broadband operators to make informed business decisions immediately. Our solutions are built on our industry-leading Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology and combine the capabilities of the Pro•ID, Pro•View, and Pro•Act product families. Whether you're focused on traffic management improvements, quality of experience or optimizing ROI and margins, Procera's solutions are engineered to help your network perform at its best.

Today, consumers rely on fixed and mobile broadband networks more than ever. Quality problems on those networks result in dissatisfaction, customer support calls, and subscriber churn. An intelligent network can ensure that high-value applications and real-time traffic meets the subscriber's quality expectations without requiring unlimited bandwidth. Procera's PacketLogic software enables broadband network operators to choose the right combination of traffic management, insights and reporting, and policy and charging solutions to meet the changing needs of their network and of their subscribers, whether as hardware, software or as a VNF. Procera's unique visibility of subscriber, application, content, device, location, and quality of experience (QoE) enable solutions that deliver on each subscriber's QoE expectations.

Pro•ID – Embedded DPI engines for OEM

Pro•ID is Procera's family of DPI engines that provide application recognition for OEMs. Running on all popular processors and operating systems, Pro•ID solutions allow integrators to remain focused on core competencies while implementing industry-leading DPI functionality from Procera in their products.

Pro•View – Virtualized data enablement

Pro•View is Procera's family of DPI-enabled virtual data enablement offerings that extract data from broadband networks and deliver them to Big Data or Customer Experience Management systems for processing and storage. Pro•View solutions leverage Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technology to enable the acquisition of data on Commercial Off The Shelf hardware anywhere in the network that it is needed for both OEMs and broadband operators.

eVolution - eVolution is a NFV Virtual Network Function (VNF) engineered to extract high frequency structured network and subscriber data for export into Big Data and Customer Experience Management systems. Based on PacketLogic technology, eVolution is a software-only offering that is deployed on Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) hardware and standard virtualization software.

Procera's Perspectives technology differentiates our solution from traditional probe-based solutions by having a providing structured data on the overall subscriber experience that includes traffic (i.e. applications), subscriber, device, topology, routing, score (quality of experience), RAN, and content - all placed in context with each subscriber data flow on the network. Each Perspective is a software license that can be unlocked as needed to provide more visibility into the subscriber experience.

With eVolution's structured subscriber data, Big Data systems can more easily correlate the subscriber experience for integration into Customer Care, Engineering, Marketing, and Executive-level dashboards and analytics offerings. The use of IPFix to stream intelligence in real-time ensures that the data provided to Big Data systems can be acted upon in real-time, solving problems before subscribers know that they exist. Data can also be stored in the Insights Storage database and access via ODBC.

Pro•Act – DPI-Enabled Solutions for Broadband Operators

Pro•Act is Procera's family of DPI-enabled solutions engineered for network operators to gain insights into network and subscriber behavior, manage congestion and network quality to enhance the subscriber experience and create services for their subscribers by enabling policy enforcement regardless of access technology. Procera's Pro•Act product family use cases are centered around Insights and Reporting, Traffic Management, and Policy and Charging Control.

ScoreCard – Procera's Network Scoring Solution

Procera's Network Scoring Solution provides a ScoreCard view that gives operators an understanding of what quality their network is capable of delivering. Networks are rated from A to F in categories that subscribers care about: Web Surfing, Streaming Video, Social Media, Real-time Gaming, Upload, Download and Voice Applications. Executive Management can use the scores to prioritize and make decisions on CAPEX and OPEX investments. Engineers can drill down deeper and analyze the actions to take at different parts of the network. Marketing can use scores to differentiate with services where the operator is particularly strong. All traffic is measured for every subscriber, all the time.

Using sub-second measurement intervals guarantees that we see the quality even for very short sessions, such as a web page download. A score is given to each category, based on the throughput, latency and packet loss measured. Procera has developed a scoring matrix that provides a score for each category based on current application needs, and the scoring matrix will be updated yearly. The data can be captured anywhere in the network, minimizing the number of measurement locations needed for a network-wide deployment. When combined with a selected Perspectives, the scores can be filtered by device type, location (such as Cell ID or DSLAM), and subscriber-tier.

The visualization in Insights includes a breakdown of where and/or what is causing a low score, and where investments should be made to improve the overall network or application score using Procera's playbook. The Scores are saved per Perspective based on the peak hour, enabling historic visibility of how the quality capability evolves over time during peak usage.
