WATERLOO, Ontario -- Sandvine, (TSX: SVC)(AIM: SAND) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for DSL, cable, FTTx, fixed wireless and mobile operators, today announced a reseller agreement with Mitsubishi Corporation and the partnership's first success. Mitsubishi is reselling Sandvine's 10-Gigabit Ethernet Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) platform and policy management solutions to DSL providers in the Japanese market.

Japan has the third largest number of broadband subscribers in the world, with 79% of Japanese households having access to very high-speed Internet connections offering speeds of up to 100 Mbps, according to Point Topic. This capacity is enabling subscribers to use their high-speed Internet access for multimedia applications including music and movie downloads, gaming and VoIP (voice over IP). Mitsubishi's first Sandvine customer will use Sandvine's solutions to ensure that subscribers receive the quality of experience that they expect for all of their broadband multimedia applications.

"Subscribers in Japan are some of the most sophisticated Internet users in the world; they truly embrace the Internet for work and entertainment," said Tom Donnelly, Sandvine EVP, Marketing and Sales. "Mitsubishi is offering Sandvine's solutions to Japanese service providers and enabling reliable and enhanced delivery of all multimedia applications."

"Operators are realizing that increased capacity encourages more music and video downloads which competes with the delivery of time-sensitive applications and services like VoIP and gaming. Sandvine's Intelligent Broadband Network Solutions allow operators to ensure reliable and consistent quality of experience for all applications," said Masatoshi Oshima, General Manager, Mitsubishi Corporation. "We are happy to partner with Sandvine to bring solutions to the Japanese market that enhance the Internet experience for broadband subscribers."

Sandvine's Intelligent Broadband Network Solutions offer fixed and wireless operators traffic identification and policy management solutions with the breadth, capacity and scale to enhance personalized subscriber service delivery. Sandvine's solutions reduce congestion and operational costs in service provider networks, monetize traffic and increase subscriber satisfaction.
