Sanjiv Wadhwani (pictured), networking analyst, Stifel Nicolaus likes Procera Networks, and "seems to be convinced the company is ahead of competitor Allot Communications in its product offering", according to Tiernan Ray, reporting to Tech Trader Daily.
"Procera does not believe that it is behind as far as building relationships with Verizon and AT&T. Verizon seems to be ahead of AT&T as far as interest in deploying DPI technology. In 2013, opportunities in the U.S. lie with cable operators and fixed line operators like Frontier and Windstream. The company believes that fixed line operators in the U.S. will start offering tiered services in 2013 using Procera (or other DPI) technology".
"The large tier-1 deal in Western Europe that the company won in early November was very competitive, with 12 vendors competing. Allot tried to use pricing to win the deal, however, Procera won on technical merits of its products .. While Allot has chosen to layer on services, such as video optimization and caching technology via acquisitions, Procera is likely to adopt a different approach (although the company was not willing to give any more details at this time)"
