Back in June Procera Networks announced that "Connetem Enhances its Virtual EPC w/Procera's DPI" (here). The product is now deployed by the "first operator worldwide to implement virtualization of the entire core network production". 

The two vendors, in conjunction with Telekom Austria Group’s Serbian subsidiary Vip mobile announced a "demonstration of the first fully virtualized LTE stack in a live network delivering data, voice and IMS services. Procera’s Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) software engine provides the application identification, traffic visibility, intelligence and control for Connectem’s virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) solution".

Two years ago, Procera deployed its h/w devices at Telekom Austria - see "Telekom Austria Selected Procera" - here]. Now, "Telekom Austria Group is now the first operator worldwide to implement virtualization of the entire core network production chain for mobile broadband services in a live environment. Instead of mobile traffic running on dedicated proprietary hardware and software, the data will now terminate in a general purpose IT data center running Intel x86 hardware and virtualization services. Additional solutions providers participating in the demonstration include Intel, VMware, Red Hat, Metaswitch, and Open Cloud".

Dejan Kastelic [pictured], director/CTO Vip mobile, said: “We are more than proud that Vip mobile achieved another successful NFV deployment. Being the youngest mobile operator and challenger in the market, we always seek for new opportunities to reshape the innovation landscape both in the local and regional markets. In this way we are directly improving our customers’ experience and expectation by introducing more efficient, cost-effective and energy saving solutions that enable faster time to market and flexible services delivery. Our dedication is to be the leader in providing new solutions to customers, vendors and local expert community by setting more advanced standards that will bring us closer to advanced European and world markets”.
