I reported yesterday on Procera Networks' mysterious "Mega-Carrier", a project won by the company in 2012, and expected to generate "$20M over 3 years" (here).
According to what I heard from a number of people familiar with the market, the carrier in BT. While most will not classified BT as a "mega-carrier", it was a big project, and a big disappointment for all other players.
One sign for the good relations between Procera and BT maybe found in their recent press release (here) quoting Paul Veitch, chief network strategist at British Telecom.
In the earlier days of DPI, BT deployed products from Ellacoya, a significant player at that time, for their retail business (here). Ellacoya was later acquired by Arbor Networks and disappeared.
