Based on feedback from Sandvine, the paragraph on IBM below has been corrected :
Sandvine published its Q3 results (see "Sandvine Reports Q3 2013 Results" - here), showing 25% growth in revenues (Y/Y and Q/Q) to $27.2M and net income of $4.7M.
Dave Caputo [pictured], Sandvine CEO provided some additional information during the company's earning call:
- we won our second customer with IBM. Our joint pipeline is encouraging and we may be able to announce further wins this year. We are also pleased with the progress towards both productization with IBM and expect to complete that process in the coming months .. we won our first customer back with them, back in Q4 2012 and it was in Africa .. they [IBM] are just looking for ways to feed their large data warehouses to help service providers come out with good decisions on how to retain customers and how to generate new services so that they generate new revenue streams with them.

We are seeing potential upgrade cycle that’s been driven by our latest offering .. We certainly don’t want slow those guys down and we think we have an upgrade cycle that we should participate in this coming year we've already seen it
