Procera Networks (NASDAQ:PKT) and Qwilt and announced a partnership to offer network operators a transparent caching and Internet intelligence solution to address network challenges resulting from the rapid growth of online video. The combined solution uses Qwilt's QB-Series transparent caching technology and Procera's PacketLogic platform to provide a plug-and-play solution to deliver over-the-top (OTT) video traffic and improve quality of experience (QoE).

Procera's Advanced Traffic Steering is designed to selectively steer OTT traffic to Qwilt for classification and caching for more efficient use of video caching resources. Analytics and reporting are designed to identify new service models and create new revenue streams by providing network operators with enhanced usage management and differentiated services based on video caching.

For new deployments, a simple insertion model for the combined solution is intended to enable both application intelligence and transparent caching immediately, while existing Procera customers can insert and integrate Qwilt's solution to enable transparent caching of online video.
