Procera's PacketLogic a Vital Element of Gardonville Co-op's First-Class Triple-Play Services and FTTH Strategy

Rural Minnesota Telephone Cooperative Selects Procera for CALEA Compliance and Advanced Network Management Capabilities

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Procera® Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: PRNW), a pioneering developer of carrier-grade network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, today announced that Gardonville Cooperative Telephone Association has chosen Procera's PacketLogic™ platform to meet the technical assistance requirements of CALEA lawful intercept regulations, and to manage bandwidth for the cooperative's state-of-the-art broadband and video services.

Serving the rural communities of Garfield, Brandon, Evansville, Millerville and surrounding areas, Gardonville provides voice, video and data services throughout its region and has recently expanded to provide wireless data services in neighboring Alexandria in competition with that community's incumbent provider. As a member-owned cooperative telephone company, Gardonville's focus is on providing top-tier services to its subscribers -- including high-quality, low-latency broadband services, an extensive menu of analog and HD IPTV services and, in the near future, fiber-to-the-home throughout the service area.

Broadband usage has grown rapidly for the co-op, driven largely by full- or part-time telecommuters in the communities and in tourist cabins at nearby lakes. Gardonville has deployed four PacketLogic 7600 platforms in its central offices to manage broadband traffic, assure service levels for latency-sensitive applications like IPTV, and to assure compliance with the U.S. lawful-intercept regulation CALEA (Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Agencies).

"We looked at a number of other traffic and service management solutions, but the PacketLogic products offered the deepest level of inspection -- a critical factor in accurately identifying and managing our network traffic," said Andy Erickson, network engineer for Gardonville Cooperative Telephone. "Through PacketLogic we can easily troubleshoot the network; for example, if we see an inordinate amount of upstream traffic from a given user, we can instantly throttle it back to snuff out viruses, botnets and other malware. And with its CALEA capabilities, PacketLogic provides us with a complete network management solution."

"The Gardonville Cooperative Telephone Association exemplifies the technological innovation, driven by a strong commitment to customer satisfaction, that is taking place among service providers on a global basis," said Albert Lopez, vice president of worldwide marketing for Procera Networks. "Through the PacketLogic products, Gardonville can continue to assure a high-quality broadband experience for its subscribers, and meet the CALEA requirements as well -- effectively gaining dual benefit from a single investment."

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.
