Procera Announces Version 5 of PacketLogic Subscriber Manager

Enhanced Version of PacketLogic's Integration Software Suite Offers Increased Scalability and New User Interface

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - September 7, 2010) -  Procera® Networks Inc. (NYSE Amex: PKT), a developer of Evolved Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) solutions providing traffic awareness, control and protection for complex networks, today announced the release of version 5 of PacketLogic's™ integration software suite, PacketLogic Subscriber Manager (PSM). This enhanced version 5 offers a significant increase in performance including an upgraded design that enables 50,000 subscribers to be provisioned per second. Version 5 is also the first PSM version with the new administration user interface (GUI) for intuitive configuration, integration setup, creation and modification of service packages, and adjustments to accommodate new network conditions.

"PacketLogic Subscriber Manager has quickly become a central component in virtually all PacketLogic installations," said Jon Lindén, Procera's vice president of global marketing. "DPI has always offered application awareness. Adding subscriber, location and device awareness opens a Pandora's box of opportunities in network forensics, network optimization and service creation."

Core functionality in PSM is mapping of subscriber ID (SID) to the then current IP address or IP addresses, which enables policies to be defined per subscriber, even when IP addresses are dynamically assigned. This is done by integrating PSM with operations (OSS) and authentication systems like RADIUS, policy control (PCRF) and DHCP through standard interfaces. Now individual and personalized service plans can be implemented, managed and monitored. Standard PSM interfaces are also used to export billing and charging information to BSS and OCS.

PSM also provides more functionality to classify network traffic based on network location and what device is being used -- also known as location and device awareness. Intelligence about when, where and with what device users access the network removes congestion and verifies validity of offered service plans. PSM is deployed at most of Procera's Tier-1 service provider customers. The constant increase in traffic, policies, and number of subscribers has made performance and scalability a high priority.

"The performance of PSM version 5 exceeds what I originally envisioned when we designed the product," said Alexander Haväng, CTO and vice president of engineering at Procera. "This extra capacity leaves headroom for growth, even with our largest Tier-1 deployments. Optionally, it allows for innovative use of further capabilities with guaranteed performance."

PacketLogic Subscriber Manager (PSM) version 5 is generally available now. For further information about PSM, please visit Procera's website (www.proceranetworks.com) or contact your local Procera sales representative.
