AFL Telecommunications Signs Certified Reseller Agreement With Procera Networks

Industry Leader in Fiber Optic Products and Services to Bring PacketLogic Network Traffic Management Solution to Emerging FTTx Deployments

DUNCAN, SC and LOS GATOS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- AFL Telecommunications, a division of Fujikura Ltd. of Japan, an industry leader in fiber optic products and services, and Procera® Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: PRNW), a pioneering developer of intelligent network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, announced a certified reseller agreement whereby AFL will resell and support Procera's products to Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) and Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) network developers. AFL will now be able to provide their end-users with Procera's solutions for a variety of market segments, including fiber-powered triple play applications for Internet broadband connectivity, voice over IP and streaming media.

By becoming a certified Procera reseller, AFL provides its customers with an enhanced product portfolio of intelligent network traffic and service management solutions that are used to improve and manage the utilization of bandwidth, the performance of applications, and the roll-out of differentiated broadband services. Procera's PacketLogic™ products deliver unparalleled value to AFL affiliates through a holistic approach to managing network traffic.

"Procera's products provide our customers with a compelling value proposition," said Kent Brown, Director of Access Solutions at AFL. "Expanding on our networking and FTTx initiatives, we expect to build sales momentum, acquire new customers and increase our market share in the fiber networking space by leveraging the unique features and superior price-performance attributes of Procera's product portfolio."

Procera's PacketLogic products provide the most accurate application identification and granular deep flow inspection (DFI) in the industry today. The data is presented in real-time to deliver the highest level of network visibility, which is used to increase performance and quality of service (QoS) for premium applications and end-users. The control achieved through PacketLogic also extends the network security as threats like virus outbreaks and cracker attacks, e.g. DoS/DDoS attacks, are quickly identified and mitigated.

"We have already deployed a number of PacketLogic solutions through FTTx channel partners in Europe and have now engaged with U.S. industry leader AFL to establish our presence in the emerging U.S. market and highlight Procera's brand awareness and visibility," said Gary J. Johnson, Senior Vice President of sales and marketing for Procera Networks. "Procera products offer several key value propositions -- including better capacity, minimum latency, maximum security and easy distribution, deployment and support -- which fit in perfectly with AFL's own initiatives."

PacketLogic is currently deployed and achieving success at a large number of sites with hundreds of thousands of users passing data through Procera appliances. Procera customers include Telcos, fixed and wireless broadband ISPs, universities, and banks, which have very demanding requirements when it comes to securing, controlling and managing network traffic.

Procera's intelligent traffic and service management solutions are available now and will be promoted through AFL's Procera sales campaign throughout this quarter. Please call 1-800-235-3423 for more information.
