Procera Networks Speeds the Creation of New Broadband Services With Introduction of DPI-Based Software Module

PacketLogic Subscriber Manager (PSM) Offers User Awareness and Location Awareness Through Quick Integration With Authentication, Policy Management and Billing Systems

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - Procera® Networks Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a developer of Evolved Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) solutions providing traffic awareness, control and protection for complex networks, today announced the PacketLogic Subscriber Manager (PSM), a robust software suite aimed at broadband service providers that speeds time-to-market for new broadband-based services. The PSM accomplishes this by quickly integrating the PacketLogic platform with surrounding network systems, such as authentication, policy management and billing, without requiring the service provider to do extensive custom integration on its own. This allows broadband service providers to create personalized offerings that attract new customers, minimize churn and increase ARPU through value-added services almost immediately. In addition, location awareness adds the possibility to resolve, or even avoid, congestions that could degrade consumers' broadband experience, as well as uncontrolled roaming costs through automatic policy enforcement.

"The PSM gathers all of our service creation capabilities under one umbrella suite," said Jon Lindén, Procera's vice president of global marketing. "We have designed the PSM as configurable functions that dramatically speed up integration and time-to-market for new Internet services. By putting this experience and functionality in source components, PSM provides great scalability and performance, particularly when compared with custom integrations, making it possible for PSM to grow with multi-million subscriber networks which is in line with our Tier-1 operator focus."

PSM can also connect to end-user portals to provide usage data and enable rules triggered by end-user selections. This puts more power in the hands of an end-user, which will unburden help desk resources and reduce subscriber churn, since a user has customized the service to suit their specific needs.

"DPI provides a tremendous opportunity to create additional value for our subscribers through the personalization of Internet access services," said Johan Andsjö, CEO of Yoigo, Spain's fourth-largest mobile operator. "DPI gives us the intelligence to be innovative when it comes to winning customers, keeping them, and finding ways to develop differentiated services for them, three key success factors in our highly competitive and maturing broadband market."

"Service creation has an immediate impact on service providers' bottom-line by resolving issues, increasing customer satisfaction and adding revenue-generating services," Lindén added. "Service creation is a cornerstone capability in what we refer to as Evolved DPI, which goes way beyond P2P control that DPI has been associated with in the past. For service providers to build business logics and pricing models based on the data provided by a DPI solution, they must rely heavily on the accuracy of such data, which is PacketLogic's strongest value proposition."
