HOD HASHARON, Israel, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers and cloud operators, today announced it has secured orders from three of the world's top ten telecommunication operators to assist in their LTE network rollouts. The three orders underscore Allot's position as one of the world's leading providers of service optimization solutions for 4G/LTE.
"We have had great success assisting operators with their 2G and 3G deployments. Now, as these same operators move to 4G, they recognize the value of Allot's solutions and are looking to Allot for assistance with their LTE deployments," said Andrei Elefant, VP Marketing and Product Management, Allot Communications. "Our scalable Service Gateway platform is able to take on the new LTE traffic alongside existing traffic from 3G and even WiFi networks. The Allot Service Gateway delivers analytics for business intelligence to operators, enabling them to make better service decisions and monetize their mobile broadband services."
The latest LTE orders come from three of Allot's existing tier one operator customers, including two in Europe and one in the United States. These operators will use the Allot Service Gateway as part of their initial LTE deployments. For example, one tier one European operator is deploying the Traffic Detection Function (TDF) of the Allot Service Gateway to provide critical network monitoring and analytics. The solution will allow the operator to analyze subscriber behavior in terms of how the network is being utilized, what devices are active, and which applications are being used. Armed with this business intelligence, the operator will be able to adjust quality of service and traffic steering to manage network use more effectively and apply more flexible charging options.TDF is part of the 3GPP Release 11 LTE standard, and it provides mobile operators with an unprecedented level of network visibility. The TDF-enabled Allot Service Gateway is a best of breed solution that enables CSPs to analyze and monetize OTT traffic by leveraging application awareness and intelligent charging information in order to deploy innovative pricing plans, drive new service revenues and increase customer loyalty.
