Mobile Broadband Operator Yoigo Chooses Procera Networks' Evolved DPI for Bandwidth and Service Management

Evolved DPI Innovator Maximizes Network Resources and Delivers Quick ROI for TeliaSonera's Spanish Mobile Broadband Operator

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - June 16, 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 Yoigo, a Spanish operator and subsidiary of the Swedish-Finnish incumbent TeliaSonera, delivering mobile telephony and broadband services throughout the Iberian peninsula, has selected Procera's award-winning PacketLogic™ platform to optimize network performance, reduce infrastructure costs and create new specialized services.

"Yoigo has very ambitious growth plans, but in order to compete effectively we have to ensure that we maximize the return on our infrastructure investment," said Johan Andsjö, Yoigo's CEO. "That means we needed a solution that could seamlessly integrate with our existing network infrastructure, deliver the performance we need to keep our customers happy, scale with our rapidly growing subscriber base and be up and running in a production environment in a matter of weeks. Procera Networks delivered on all of this and even beat our aggressive time plan for integration and installation."

PacketLogic is ideal for mobile broadband operators that are facing multiple challenges managing their networks and the new traffic patterns that accompany them. With shorter user sessions than wireline users, more expensive access technologies, exotic traffic patterns and loss-leading competition from wireline broadband providers, mobile operators are forging new business models in a "trial by fire" environment. This means their network resources need to be optimized from the moment the service is introduced and that requires an accurate, real-time platform that can identify applications and ensure the proper amount of bandwidth is allocated to each user.

Yoigo, for example, relies on simplicity and cost-effectiveness in order to attract subscribers, which means they have rapid subscriber growth in a short amount of time. In order to manage this growth, Yoigo uses PacketLogic to identify who the user is, what application they are using and where they are connecting to the network. By performing this function in real-time, Yoigo is able to optimize the connection for that user no matter what application they're using or where they are located, thus ensuring quality of experience.

"Visionary mobile broadband operators like Yoigo are using powerful new business models to make cost-effective wireless broadband a ubiquitous reality," said James F. Brear, Procera's president and CEO. "In order to make these models work, the operators need to make intelligent business decisions, deploy new services and effectively manage and control their network traffic. PacketLogic is designed to give these operators the performance and accurate visibility they need to succeed."

Released just last month, the PacketLogic PL10000 is believed to be the industry's highest performance DPI platform, offering 80Gbps of throughput. The PacketLogic PL10000 was designed as a carrier-grade platform to provide the scalability, reliability and flexibility needed to meet network requirements for today and tomorrow. It is believed to have four times the capacity of its nearest competitor and can be deployed anywhere in the network. It is driven by a state-of-the-art traffic identification and classification engine, DRDL™, which has more than 900 signatures and is growing day-by-day thanks to the efforts of Procera's world-class application identification team.

The PacketLogic PL10000 is being publicly demonstrated for the first time at NXTcomm 2008, held today through Thursday at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Procera's booth is SL 2321 and attendees will be able to see how service providers, by facilitating real-time traffic data, are using DPI to manage their networks.
