    - Enables Creation of new Services and Revenue Streams; Reduces
    Capex/Opex
    

    BOSTON, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:   ALLT), a leader
in IP service optimization and revenue generation solutions based on deep
packet inspection (DPI), announced today the launch of the Allot Service
Gateway Sigma (SG-Sigma). With 40 Gbps of throughput and fully attuned to 3G
and 4G/LTE networks, the SG-Sigma is designed to enable network operators to
generate additional revenue streams and increase subscriber Quality of
Experience (QoE). Marking the next milestone in the evolution of the Service
Gateway platform, the SG-Sigma will be unveiled for the first time during GSMA
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 16-19 February, hall 2.1, booth D82.

    The SG-Sigma is in a class of its own: the only DPI-based Service Gateway
platform designed specifically for mobile and next generation networks. It
facilitates the fast introduction of new value added services (VAS) for
networks and subscribers, such as URL filtering and network security, as well
as tiered and quota based services. The SG-Sigma's unique "topology and
service aware" technology is designed to solve mobile broadband traffic
management and backhaul congestion issues - enabling operators to decrease
operating expenses while increasing QoE to subscribers. Allot provides
DPI-based policy and charging enforcement function (PCEF) compliant with 3G,
4G/LTE and WiMax networks.
    "As next generation network rollouts materialize, network operators have
a responsibility to assure a high quality of experience for their users while
managing their own growing network operating costs," said David Vorhaus,
senior analyst at The Yankee Group. "By deploying a DPI-based, open platform,
service control solution with high throughput and flexibility, operators
position themselves to drive new revenue while assuring the proper levels of
network management and security that broadband subscribers demand."
    The SG-Sigma's modular and flexible carrier-class architecture enables
"pay as you grow" deployments, allowing network operators to add throughput,
subscribers and services as and when needed - reducing the initial deployment
outlay. With the introduction of SG-Sigma, Allot deployments can scale up to
30 million mobile broadband subscribers.
    "Allot's leadership and expertise in mobile broadband is based on our
considerable experience in the market and our sizable installed base,
including the five Tier 1 mobile operators that we signed in 2008 alone,"
commented Rami Hadar, Allot's CEO and President. "The SG-Sigma is the result
of Allot's dedication to working with customers in order to provide solutions
to real issues, and is tangible proof of our commitment to mobile broadband.
This system enables network operators to take hold of the future of network
intelligence with new, tiered services and revenue streams backed by a
platform that can handle today's demanding subscribers and applications."
    SG-Sigma is built to AdvancedTCA(R) standards and is ready for customer
trials.
