FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Subscriber Experience company, today announced its RAN Perspectives subscriber experience solution for mobile broadband operators has been named winner in both the "Network Test and Measurement" as well as the "Best In Show - Best Green Installation" categories of the 2014 Fierce Innovation Awards. Fierce Innovation Awards 2014 is an operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable media outlets. Winners were judged by degree of technical innovation, financial impact, market validation, compatibility with existing network environments, end-user customer experience, and overall level of innovation.
The "Best in Show – Best Green Installation" award recognizes cutting-edge technology vendors who have enabled an operator, service provider or content developer to reduce its energy consumption and make better use of the energy it does use.
Procera's RAN Perspectives eliminates the need to deploy physical network probes on mobile networks and because the solution leverages existing devices in the field to crowd source RAN signal data, operators are able to put an end to labor-intensive manual drive testing that accounts for a substantial amount of energy and capital consumption annually.
"Winning the 'Network Test and Measurement' and 'Best in Show' categories reflect the groundbreaking nature of our RAN Perspectives solution," said Henrik Dam, director of mobile research at Procera. "With the mobile experience being more data-centric than ever and operators being more environmentally conscious, customers need a solution that provides visibility into the mobile user experience while simultaneously eliminating the cost and energy consumption of using vehicles to drive test mobile network performance."
Jason Nelson, publisher of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom, and FierceCable, said, "As the Innovation Awards program grows each year so does the level of innovation we see from our entrants. To that end, we are thrilled to be able to offer applicants a unique channel to share their products and services with such an esteemed panel of judges from major global operators."
Winners were selected by an exclusive carrier-only panel of executives from AT&T, CableLabs, Cablevision System Corporation, Comcast, Cox Communications, Inc., Orange, Sprint, TeliaSonera International Carrier, and Verizon. Full profiles of the judges can be found at https://www.fierceinnovationawards.com/telecom/2014/judges.
RAN Perspectives is a low-profile subscriber experience solution that provides real-time location and radio access network (RAN) quality of experience (QoE) data that can be used to enhance the mobile broadband experience for consumers. The solution is an applet with a small memory and power-usage footprint that is loaded over-the-air on a device's SIM card and combines traditional mobile radio metrics with data quality metrics to provide mobile operators with a more accurate measurement of the overall user experience. It enables unprecedented network test and management capabilities and a compelling mobile experience because it is independent of the network vendor, independent of the radio access technology and independent of the subscriber. Use cases can apply to the Engineering, Marketing, and Customer Care teams as the intelligence gathered is relevant across broadband operators' entire organization in supporting the goal of delivering a higher QoE for subscribers.
RAN Perspectives was announced in Q3 2014 and is expected to be generally available in Q1 2015. For more information, visit http://www.proceranetworks.com/products/ran-perspectives.
