Yesterday we introduced Content Intelligence. Did you see that? It’s actually really cool, but I think I might have to add some color to make sure you catch why this matters. This is yet another step in our consistent strategy around Intelligence Everywhere, where we know that you need to see more to do more. But what does Content Intelligence really mean? Well, in short we drill deeper into the HTTP protocol. Why do we do that? Because HTTP is not just a web protocol anymore. Read more [+]
Back home from London and the Broadband Traffic Management (BBTM) conference – a great opportunity, as always, to meet operators, competitors (“industry colleagues” if you prefer), partners, and distinguished analysts. Three days of presentations and panels. But, there’s one question that keeps ringing in my head: “So Jon, what has really happened since we were here last year?” Read more [+]
I love conferences. I do! I enjoy meeting customers and industry colleagues, and, if possible, speaking on a panel to debate a topic. Here, I’d like to share my experience at the Policy and Real-Time Charging event put on by Informa in Amsterdam two weeks ago.
My panel had the longest title ever – I can’t even remember it – but in essence, it was about whether the fastest return on investment comes from policy use cases that address congestion management, or from new service creation.

I just got back from London and Informa’s third annual global Broadband Traffic Management (BBTM) conference, and guess what, the buffet is closed! Not the actual buffet at the conference, which in spite today’s state of the global economy, was bigger and tastier than ever – great job Royal Garden Hotel! No, I’m talking about the “all you can eat” broadband offering that used to be standard, that has become rare, and that was predicted dead in the coming year or two.
I love the crowded and intimate exhibition and networking area at BBTM where competitors and partners rub shoulders as they work hard to convince operator representatives about the uniqueness of their products. What I love even more, is when there’s an opportunity to debate hot topics with an audience. Read more [+]
10 years!?! I won’t say it feels like yesterday, because a lot of hard work has gone into it, but it doesn’t feel like it’s been 10 years since we launched the very first edition of PacketLogic. I suppose that means we’ve had a lot of fun on the way.
The not so glamorous introduction took place at the NetworksTelecom trade show in Stockholm, September 24, 2001, in a 10×10 booth with a projector and a bowl of candy. I think few, besides us staffing the booth, thought they were looking at what was to become the world’s leading intelligent policy enforcer that several Tier-1 operators rely on for creating and delivering better broadband services to their customers.
