HOD HASHARON, Israel, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: ALLT), a global leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers, announced today that it has secured a $6.5 million order from a Tier-1 mobile operator in EMEA for Intelligent Steering and Value-Added Service (VAS) Licenses.
