DPI/Cache Wins: Allot Deployed by LTE MNO as "Fixed Alternative"

Allot Communications announced the "the deployment of its Allot Service Gateway solution, in a major European operator’s 4G rollout, which will enable the operator’s vision of providing a fixed network alternative. The LTE rollout incorporates network intelligence built-in from the ground up as an integral part of the LTE architecture. This will enable optimized delivery of data at rates up to 100Mbps and the implementation of value-based charging and innovative service plans .. Allot’s 3GPP compliant solution accurately identifies OTT (over-the-top) application traffic in real time at speeds of up to 160 Gbps per platform. This provides subscriber, application and network intelligence previously unavailable to policy and charging systems.  With granular usage information, operators can better monetize network traffic in ways that reflect its true value for both the operator and the subscriber.  Services enabled through the Allot solution include premium video-caching and optimization, as well as tailored packages, where particular application traffic is zero-rated against the subscriber’s data cap.

In addition to selling a home router and dongles to provide access to LTE data services, the company is also offering a home box which supports voice telephony - We have a chance in the rural areas to replace the fixed network, and this is very interesting to us ..  100TB of data is crossing the operator’s LTE infrastructure each week, which was described as “very huge numbers for the start of a network”.
