Procera Networks Provides Competitive Differentiation for Swedish Triple-Play Cable Operator, Insat Net

Procera Adds to a Growing List of Cable-Operator Customers; PacketLogic Chosen for Network Bandwidth and Service Management

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - Procera® Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: PRNW), a pioneering developer of carrier-grade network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, today announced that Insat Net AB, a triple-play cable operator, has selected the PacketLogic 7600 to manage network bandwidth and services, to ensure service levels are applied appropriately, and to roll out new tiered services that further differentiate Insat's service offerings for competitive advantage. Insat joins a growing list of cable operators utilizing PacketLogic to manage and control their network traffic, bandwidth and services.

With operations in Southern Sweden and Northern Denmark, Insat has grown its customer base through innovative services, a local presence, and personalized service. The 15-year-old company, which offers cable TV, data and voice services, offers end-customers a cost-effective alternative to the service offerings of the national incumbent telephone companies. The PL7600 allows control over bandwidth-hogging applications such as BitTorrent and file sharing -- thus maintaining quality of service for all users -- and will permit Insat to offer differentiated service packages to its customers.

"PacketLogic provides us with the intelligence and control we need in the network," said Patrik Forsén of Insat Net AB. "Using PacketLogic, we are defining the base level of service that will provide our customers with a good Internet experience, and going forward we plan to offer additional tiered services to satisfy different customer needs. Through these services, we can improve customer retention, attract new customers and better compete with the incumbent telcos. Differentiation is the way of the future."

"In our experience across multiple cable operators worldwide, PacketLogic has been proved to deliver extra value in cable networks," said Sven Nowicki, executive vice president of EMEA operations for Procera Networks. "These networks use a 'shared' model, in which multiple users split an allotment of bandwidth, as well as an asymmetric technology design -- the combination of which requires highly accurate traffic identification and flexible rules to maintain quality of service."

The PacketLogic product family includes the PL5600, PL7600, PL7620 and PL9200 models, which range from 4Mbps to 2.5 Gbps bidirectional throughput capacity. The modular software design includes Surveillance (standard in all PacketLogic systems), Filtering, Traffic Shaping, and Statistics options.
