Procera Networks Delivers New PacketLogic Lawful Intercept Platform for Broadband Service Providers to Meet Looming FCC's -- CALEA Requirements for Homeland Security

PacketLogic's Flow-Based System Identifies and Intercepts VoIP and Internet Data Traffic to Help BSPs Meet May 2007 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) Deadline

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- NTCA Expo '07 -- Procera® Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: PRNW), a pioneering developer of intelligent network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, today announced its new PacketLogic Lawful Intercept platform, a flow-based traffic management system designed to enable Broadband Service Providers (BSPs) and Voice of Internet Protocol (VoIP) interconnect providers to provide intercepted internet data that is requested by Law Enforcement Agencies under a court ordered warrant. Procera's PacketLogic is the industry's first, cost effective, easy-to-implement platform that addresses the new regulatory requirements of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA). CALEA requires broadband service providers to have proper tools in place by May 14, 2007 to isolate, intercept, export and selectively monitor in real-time, a legally identified criminal suspect on the BSP's network, without compromising the constitutional right to privacy for the rest of the customers on the network.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) defined the requirements for CALEA, which was originally enacted in the mid-1990's to help Law Enforcement Agencies process warrants for listening to standard analog telephone communications. As the Internet has gained popularity as a communication medium over the last decade, CALEA has been modified to include the procedures and technical requirements for Broadband Service Providers to lawfully intercept Internet-based communications, including data and VoIP calls originating or terminating on the Internet.

When a Law Enforcement Agency issues a legal warrant to a BSP, the Caller Identifying Information (CII) or Call Content (CC), such as VoIP traffic, to and from a particular user is captured or redirected by the Procera platform, and sent to the Law Enforcement Agency for real-time forensic analysis. The warrant has to be very specific about the types of data traffic to be captured and distribution process to the Law Enforcement Agencies.

"Procera's CALEA platform is deployed throughout the service provider's network infrastructure and provides the Law Enforcement Agencies with an Internet wiretap mechanism that can only be accessed and triggered through a legal warrant," said Albert Lopez, VP of Product Management at Procera Networks. "Our new PacketLogic Lawful Intercept platform securely isolates very specific information on the network requested by a warrant while protecting the privacy of information not covered by that warrant. We're proud to be the first traffic management vendor to enable BSPs and VoIP interconnect providers with a cost-effective means for addressing the technical assistance requirements of CALEA."
