WATERLOO, Ontario -- Sandvine, (TSX:SVC; AIM:SAND) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for DSL, FTTH, cable and wireless carriers, today announced that Grande Communications has selected Sandvine’s solutions for Intelligent Broadband Networks and its professional services organization to achieve CALEA compliance for Grande’s high-speed Internet access customers.

CALEA (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act) compliance is required by all broadband service providers in the US to have surveillance capabilities (wiretapping) on telephone exchanges and IP communications, such as VoIP (voice over IP), in the event of a court order. This requirement presented broadband providers in the US with a unique challenge that required an immediate solution.

Sandvine’s solutions for Intelligent Broadband Networks have been deployed in Grande’s network since the beginning of the year. Following the pending CALEA requirement, Sandvine’s professional services team developed a solution that enabled Grande to achieve CALEA compliance by the May 14, 2007 deadline.

“Sandvine offers the ideal intelligence platform. We have been able to combat malicious traffic including spam and now we are fully CALEA compliant. The platform will enable us to continuously add solutions,” said Brady Adams, Grande’s VP of Engineering and Operations. “Sandvine’s professional services team is extremely innovative and responsive. They are a true partner in finding solutions to our network challenges, while helping us achieve our business goals.”
