Korea University Selects Procera's New PacketLogic PL10000 Solution to Prioritize Sensitive and Critical Network Traffic

Unchallenged Throughput Capabilities and Feature-Set Allow Korea University in Seoul to Leverage Evolved DPI for Real-Time Traffic Monitoring and Volume-Based Shaping

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2008) - Procera® Networks Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a developer of Evolved Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) solutions providing the most accurate traffic awareness, control and protection for complex networks, today announced that PL10000, the latest introduction to the PacketLogic™ family of products, has been deployed at a campus of higher education in the APAC region. Korea University is using PacketLogic PL10000 to gain visibility into network application traffic and control over non-academic use of network bandwidth.

"University networks act as a service provider to the academic and residential buildings across their campuses, and see enormous traffic volume all day, every day," said Jon Lindén, Procera's vice president of global marketing. "It's natural for universities to use DPI to increase the intelligence about their network traffic and take full advantage of the substantial investment they've made in network infrastructure."

Korea is one of the first to deploy PacketLogic PL10000, and many other universities have selected Procera's advanced solution for application and network management. Procera has a particularly strong foothold in the APAC region, with 30+ universities, and now includes all three "SKY" schools, a collective acronym of the three universities considered most prestigious in South Korea: Seoul National, Korea and Yonsei.

Like most higher education campuses, Korea University had issues with balancing academic and recreational Internet usage with a growing number of students and myriad applications, resulting in continuous increase in bandwidth required to guarantee quality.

"The amount of bandwidth and sophistication of these applications continues to increase exponentially," said Mr. Kang, Deok IL, a staff member of the IT System Management department at Korea University, which is within the Office of Information & Computing. "As a result, Procera's ability to give us deep, real-time insight into our network traffic, as well as the ability to shape that traffic, is an invaluable tool. With PacketLogic PL10000, we now have the capacity needed to handle the increasing traffic load."

Korea University is considered one of the top three universities in South Korea and the top MBA program in Asia. Founded in 1905, its 30,000 students are located in central Seoul, with a secondary campus in Jochiwon. The university is particularly well known for its nationalistic origin in the colonial age and is famous for its excellent quality of legal education.

"In order to manage bandwidth to appropriately service university students, faculty, staff and guests, network mangers are beginning to see the value in knowing what is actually going through the network," said Johan Wikenstedt, Procera's managing director for APAC. "The application and user awareness provided by DPI technology not only allows them to shape network traffic, but also to provide protection to their network and its users."
