Brazilian ISP Makes the Switch to PacketLogic, Gains Strong Network Application Traffic Management Capabilities

Engeplus Leverages Procera's PacketLogic to Manage Multi-Tiered Service Levels, Assure Quality of Service for Customers

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - Procera® Networks, Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a pioneering developer of telco-class network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, today announced that Engeplus Internet of Criciúma, Brazil, has chosen Procera's PacketLogic to provide network application traffic management across its wired, wireless and fiber-optic networks. Engeplus serves more than 7,000 customers across 12 cities in Santa Catarina state, with fiber-optic service to more than 400 buildings, and provides campus-wide wireless services to 5 major enterprises in the region.

Facing the prospect of an expensive upgrade to a 4-year-old competitive product, Engeplus began looking at alternatives. At a regional exposition, they were introduced to PacketLogic by LightComm Tecnologia e Servicos, a long-time Procera channel partner.

"PacketLogic provides very strong feature sets that help us manage our network more effectively and flexibly, and provides easy-to-set multi-layered rules for customization and control," said Tiago Ghisi, technical manager for Engeplus Internet. "From the moment of installation, we found the PacketLogic client software to be faster, more intuitive and simpler to set up and manage."

Engeplus offers its customers a wide range of tiered bandwidth choices, from 300 Kb to 2 Mbps wireless connection and up to 10Mbps for fiber-optic customers, and utilizes PacketLogic to assure quality of service (QoS) and service levels. PacketLogic also allows the ISP to manage peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent, Gnutella, and eDonkey to ensure fair use of bandwidth between users and avert network slowdowns.

"Engeplus' deployment of PacketLogic illustrates some of the reasons for PacketLogic's growing traction in South America," said Marcelo Alvarenga, commercial manager for Lightcomm Tecnologia e Servicos Ltda. "In head-to-head evaluations, we consistently see that PacketLogic has the robust performance, scalability and feature set to meet the needs of service providers."

"Our congratulations to LightComm on this important deployment, and we welcome Engeplus Internet as a valued customer," said Albert Lopez, of worldwide marketing for Procera Networks. "In order to provide a quality Internet experience for their end-customers, Internet Service Providers, Telcos, cable operators and other service providers are increasingly turning to PacketLogic for its powerful Deep Packet Inspection network traffic and service management capabilities."

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, Statistics and Web Statistics options.
