Jon also told me that while Procera's competitors - Allot and Sandvine - have built-in traffic steering, Procera decided to approach F5 install base, and offer an attractive solution to customers that are implementing F5 steering with video optimization. Initially, all devices will be connected sequentially, but Jon says that they are open to go to the next step of an embedded solution. Procera and F5 created a control protocol with which Procera reports to the F5 device about the identified application.
During MWC, the joint solution will be demonstrated in F5 booth.
