About Analytics in Motion
At Procera we talk a lot about our real-time capabilities in combination with our Analytics capabilities. We have done a number of blogs on “live events”, and we are seeing live streaming events becoming an important resource for broadband subscribers (and a big challenge for network operators). The 2012 Summer Olympics in London represents a watershed event in live streaming, as it is the first truly worldwide event, and is expected to have a significant impact on both fixed and mobile broadband networks.
To honor this event, Procera is launching Analytics in Motion, a new site (aim.procernetworks.com) that is dedicated to providing worldwide visibility on the impact that live events and Internet trends have on broadband networks. This site is designed to provide insight to network operators on how different events are affecting their infrastructure. The network impact could be due to streaming, increased social networking activity, file sharing, or even a new application that takes the Internet by storm.
This data is all based on the traffic that we directly see on networks. The data is anonymized and often aggregated to protect the privacy of our customers, but the we only report what we can see. We are not deployed everywhere in the world, but have a wide range of customers around the world across fixed and mobile networks that return good data for us. Although the site is run by Procera, if you are a network operator, service provider, press, analyst, or an application developer and have something that you want to share, let us know. We are happy to provide a forum for new and interesting broadband activity, and want to share this with the world.
Procera prides itself on the speed at which we can provide our customers with business intelligence and analytics. The data we provide our customers is invaluable for network planning, service creation, and charging, and enables them to better serve their broadband customers. Procera employees are “geeks” of the highest degree, and there is nothing that we love quite as much as seeing our technology helping our customers and their subscribers (if you know any great geeks that have similar interests, contact firstname.lastname@example.org). We have big long-term plans for the site, but you need to walk before you run, so I present to you aim.proceranetworks.com.
