Globally, Sandvine added nine new service provider customers in the quarter; one of these new clients is in the Latin American region. "Our momentum in the wireless and DSL markets continued, and after a tough 2008, the cable market has once again shown some strength. We maintained healthy revenue and cash levels and continued to diversify our business," said Dave Caputo, Sandvine's president and CEO. The company has over 150 service provider customers in 60 countries, serving more than 70mn broadband subscribers worldwide.
