Procera Networks Granted VMware Ready Status for PacketLogic/V

By Rory Lidstone February 25, 2016

Procera Networks has managed a major network functions virtualization (NFV) achievement. The company’s PacketLogic/V virtualized traffic management, policy and charging, and analytics solution has achieved VMware Ready status for NFV. This means that, after a detailed validation process, PacketLogic/V has achieved VMware’s highest level of endorsement and can now be found on the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX).

Customers can now be assured that VMware vCloud NFV and PacketLogic work together flawlessly, delivering all the benefits of NFV, supported by best-of-breed deep packet inspection (DPI) technology. For service operators, this collaboration means maximized server utilization, as well as the ability to deploy numerous PacketLogic services on one server, and react quickly to subscribers’ needs with new and differentiated services.

Earlier in the month, Procera expanded its DPI offerings to include virtualized network functions (VNFs) for OEMs. On top of its existing ‘low memory footprint’ embedded DPI engine for OEMs, Procera now offers a virtualized OEM solution framework that allows equipment manufacturers to implement the benefits of Procera’s ‘active traffic’ DPI technology as a VNF.

"By using PacketLogic/V with the VMware vCloud NFV platform, our operator, managed service provider, analytics service provider, and vendor customers can take advantage of the cost savings and service agility benefits attributed to virtualization and can do so with the assurance that our virtual offering is backed by VMware's robust, trusted technology," said Michael Kay, vice president and general manager, OEM & Channels, Procera Networks.

The VMware Ready program makes it easy for customer to identify partner products that have been certified to work with VMware infrastructure.

"We are pleased that Procera Networks and PacketLogic/V qualifies for the VMware Ready logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware infrastructure, which can speed time to value within customer environments," said Howard Hall, senior director, Global Technology Partnering Organization, VMware.
