Utah Independent Telco Relies on Procera's PacketLogic for Accurate Bandwidth Management, CALEA Compliance

South Central, State's Largest Independent, Improves Quality of Service and Meets Lawful Intercept Regulatory Requirements

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - Procera® Networks, Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a pioneering developer of telco-class network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, today announced that South Central Utah Telephone Association, Inc. has deployed PacketLogic appliances to meet the dual goals of monitoring and analyzing bandwidth usage in its DSL service, and achieving compliance with the technical assistance requirements of CALEA, the United States' lawful intercept regulation. PacketLogic is unique in the industry in its ability to provide lawful-intercept capabilities coupled with advanced network traffic and service management.

South Central serves a large swath of southern Utah's scenic red-rock country, including St. George, Cedar City, Escalante and dozens of smaller communities and outlying areas. The company provides a full suite of services ranging from local and long distance services to cellular communications, Internet access, cable TV and business communication solutions. With bandwidth in this remote area at a premium, South Central sought a way to better manage its resources while meeting the requirements of CALEA (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Agencies).

"Prior to PacketLogic, our customers were our alarm system -- we would learn of network congestion and slow connection speeds only when we started to receive customer complaints," said Jody Davis, inside plant manager for South Central Utah Telephone. "PacketLogic has allowed us to manage our network proactively and allocate bandwidth where it is needed, improving our customers' satisfaction with our service. And through PacketLogic, we have also met a key company goal of compliance with lawful-intercept regulations."

"Broadband service providers worldwide are struggling with dramatic changes in network usage driven by peer-to-peer file sharing and other bandwidth-intensive applications, and they face increasing regulatory requirements for lawful-intercept capabilities as well," said Albert Lopez, vice president of worldwide marketing for Procera Networks. "PacketLogic gives these providers a flexible, powerful solution to gain visibility into network traffic and allocate bandwidth appropriately, thus reducing or eliminating the need to purchase additional bandwidth resources. Further, PacketLogic's CALEA capabilities allow these providers to meet the requirements without investing in a sunk cost."

In addition to PacketLogic's core network monitoring and lawful-intercept capabilities, South Central found the product line's modular design highly attractive. "As our traffic patterns and service offerings change, we can easily add new modules to allow us to respond to the changes," said Davis.

The PacketLogic product family includes the PL5600, PL7600, PL7620 and PL9200 models, which range from 2 Mbps to 8 Gbps bidirectional throughput capacity. The modular software design includes Surveillance (standard in all PacketLogic systems), Filtering, Traffic Shaping, and Statistics options.
