Procera Networks announced the "launch of Virtualized PacketLogic solutions based on the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) standards. The complete PacketLogicTM solution will be available to network operators in a virtualized “appliance” package, reducing the cost of acquisition and ownership for Internet Intelligence solutions .. The Virtual PacketLogic solutions will be available for trial in the third quarter of 2013, and are expected to be generally available by the end of 2013".
The Virtual PacketLogic solutions will offer the same software functionality as the current hardware platforms used by hundreds of network operators worldwide. Any hardware solution that can run standard-based virtualization software can be deployed with the PacketLogic solution modules (PSM, PRE, and PIC), including deployments that run all of the modules on a single hardware platform. Furthermore the performance and scalability of the solutions can easily be upgraded by adding more CPU and memory to the virtual machine. The Virtual PacketLogic solutions can be used for any portion of the lifecycle of a Policy Enforcement deployment from the initial functional evaluation, trial deployment, service rollout, bandwidth expansion, or geographic expansion, lowering the cost of acquisition of IPE technology as well as the operational cost.
