Procera Networks Launches High-End Statistics Server

PacketLogic PL1400 Offers a Scalable Data Repository at Par With Carrier-Grade PL10000 for Analyzing Network Performance and Traffic Trends

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2008) - Procera® Networks Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a developer of Evolved DPI solutions providing the most accurate traffic awareness, control and protection for complex networks, today announced PacketLogic PL1400, an advanced statistics repository designed to scale with the high-end carrier-grade PacketLogic PL10000 series. Featuring a scalable design with up to 14.4 terabytes of data aggregation on a Sun Microsystems platform, the PL1400 allows operators to manage, store and analyze the large volume of highly granular network traffic data generated by one or more PL10000 platforms. PL1400 with PacketLogic's Statistics module empowers the operator with the competitive advantage to discover network traffic trends, track improper user behavior, detect traffic congestion and simplify the creation and billing of service offerings targeted to consumers based upon actual data usage.

"Operators are not able to make proper business decisions if they don't have a complete and accurate picture of what traffic is going through the network," said Jon Lindén, Procera's vice president of global marketing. "Statistical analysis is paramount to any operator's ability to make intelligent infrastructure, service offering and bandwidth allocation decisions. By announcing the PL1400, we satisfy yet another Tier-1 operator requirement with our PacketLogic line of DPI products."

Deployed out-of-band at the network core with either direct or remote connection to a PacketLogic PL10000 platform, the PL1400 is capable of managing one or multiple platforms, providing operators complete scalability to meet increasing demand. It is available with as many as 4 fully loaded disk arrays, each array featuring 12 hard disk drives at 300 GB per drive, arranged to allow for redundant data storage and enhanced resilience over time. In conjunction with the PL10000 and the latest release of the PacketLogic firmware (version 12), the PL1400 employs advanced administrative controls, giving operators the flexibility to define the types of data they want to store and at what granularity. The aggregation of data summaries to a centralized statistics repository like the PL1400 provides the instant query response that PacketLogic customers expect, even when analyzing multi-million subscriber networks. Using this intelligence, operators can then define what consumers most need from their service provider and tailor their offerings to meet that demand.
