F5 CEO Confirms DPI Plans; Happy with Traffix

F5's CEO, John McAdam (pictured) , covered in the company's 2012 FQ2 results ($340M revenues, here) conference call the recent Trtaffix acquistion as well as F5's DPI plans:

"In late February, we augmented our expanding array of Telco-related capabilities with the acquisition of Traffix Systems [here], the leading provider of Diameter signaling product for service providers .. The Traffix team’s deep understanding of the needs of service providers and the scale and developing technology to manage, scale, secure, integrate and apply Diameter services within legacy and next-generation networks is a uniquely valuable asset. No other company in the industry has as wide and rich functionality to simplify and enable the next-generation Diameter signaling infrastructure.. Diameter is a foundational piece of that puzzle and we are delighted to have the Traffix team join the F5 family .. As Andy mentioned, while we do not expect to see any material revenue contribution from the Traffix Diameter products in Q3, we are very pleased with the progress we have made and the growing number of proof-of-concept we’re engaged in around the world as service providers accelerate the launch of 4G or LTE networks .. Early indications from these POCs are quite positive and we believe validate the unique value proposition. The combination of F5 and Traffix offer to service providers in this rapidly expanding market".

Mr. McAdam also confirmed F5's DPI plans (see "F5 Service Provider/Mobile Road Map: Focus on DPI" - here) - "In addition, we have another major release of TMOS plan for later in the year, which will include DPI functionality, a host of new security features and major enhancements for private and public cloud environment".
