Procera Networks Announces New Texas-Based Value-Added Reseller Partner, TRC Engineering Services -- Consultant to U.S. Telcos

Diversified Company Deploys Procera's PacketLogic for CALEA Compliance and Traffic Management for Its Customers and Its LEC Operations

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - Procera® Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: PRNW), a pioneering developer of telco-class network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, today announced TRC Engineering Services, Inc. has become the newest member of Procera's channel partner program. In addition to marketing and selling Procera's products to its customers, TRC has deployed Procera's PacketLogic platform at its sister company, Border to Border Communications, Inc., for network traffic management and the PLID (Procera Lawful Intercept Delivery) solution as the foundation for Trusted Third Party (TTP) lawful intercept services.

TRC Engineering Services specializes in telecommunications and IP engineering design services for wireline, wireless, fiber, coaxial and hybrid networks for incumbent and competitive service providers. In addition to its local exchange carrier sister company, Border to Border Communications, the company offers value-added enhanced calling services through TRC Telecom, and operates a competitive local exchange carrier, Frontera Telecommunications.

Prior to selecting PacketLogic, TRC evaluated several competitive products for CALEA (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Agencies) technical assistance; however, PacketLogic is unique in the marketplace in its ability to meet the technical assistance requirements of CALEA while giving service providers advanced deep packet inspection and network traffic management capabilities.

Using the PLID, TRC provides Trusted Third Party services to their service-provider clients, which have purchased and deployed a PacketLogic system through TRC. In the event that the service provider receives a lawfully authorized electronic surveillance (LAES) request, TRC will process the request through its PLID and the TTP clients PacketLogic, and handle the communications and interface with the law enforcement agencies involved.

"Procera's PacketLogic fills a clear need for service providers in the U.S. by allowing them to cost-effectively meet the technical requirements of CALEA while providing the network visibility and control they need in order to effectively and efficiently operate their networks," said David Hamlyn, VP of central office equipment for TRC Engineering Services, Inc. "Rather than incurring an expensive sunk cost by purchasing a product designed only for CALEA compliance, our customers can meet the law's requirements while improving network performance and throughput."

"TRC Engineering Services has specialized in offering their clients realistic and practical solutions for their networks and the unique environmental and regulatory environments that they face," said Albert Lopez, vice president of worldwide marketing for Procera Networks. "Through Procera's PacketLogic and PLID platforms, TRC can now offer a cost-effective yet superior solution to manage, control and optimize network traffic, and meet the CALEA requirements as well."

The PacketLogic product family includes the PL5600, PL7600, PL7620 and PL9200 models, which range from 4 Mbps to 2.5 Gbps bidirectional throughput capacity. The modular software design includes Surveillance (standard in all PacketLogic systems), Filtering, Traffic Shaping, and Statistics options. Procera also offers the PLID, an option for compliance with the technical assistance requirements of lawful-intercept regulations such as CALEA in the U.S.
