With the capacity to manage 5 million subscribers on a single platform and seamlessly cluster for even higher performance, the PTS 14700 is a carrier-class solution.

Other Platform Highlights
As operators continue to invest heavily in 3G / 3.5G and WiMAX rollouts, they are also refining traditional service plans to attract new subscribers and encourage more mobile data usage. Flat-rate data plans are being augmented with value-based billing, application-based services and comprehensive subscriber communications enabling subscribers to make informed usage decisions and understand data charges whether downloading ring tones or uploading photos to a social networking site via their handheld devices. Delivering new personalized services with reliable quality to millions, and even tens of millions of subscribers, in a scalable, cost-effective manner has become paramount to operator profitability and customer loyalty.
“For the first time, mobile operators have visibility into specific types of data traffic flowing over their network. With this information, they can then apply a variety of policy decisions to deliver more personalized services to subscribers,” said Don Bowman, Sandvine Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. “Operators can also leverage this information to fairly allocate network resources, communicate with subscribers, promote usage and enhance subscriber quality of experience.”
Sandvine's award-winning network equipment helps DSL, FTTH, cable, fixed wireless and mobile operators characterize what is really happening on their networks, enabling polices that improve customer satisfaction, reduce operational costs and increase profitability. Sandvine’s policy management solutions are both application and subscriber-aware, empowering service providers to better manage network traffic congestion, mitigate the proliferation of malicious traffic, and deliver QoS-prioritized multimedia services.
