Procera's Smart Campus Solutions Deployed at More Than 300 Universities Worldwide

PacketLogic™ Meets Higher Education's Growing Demands for Cost-Effective Packet Shaping, Bandwidth Management and Network Performance

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2011) - Innovation drives education as universities are bolstering their networks to deal with exploding demands for bandwidth. The Smart Campus suite from Procera Networks, Inc. ("Procera") (NYSE Amex: PKT) advances networks across more than 300 higher education institutions worldwide, including at such notable institutions as West Virginia University, University of California Davis, Northern Arizona University, University of Montana, Manchester University, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Sun Yat-Sen University and Pusan National University.

Procera's PL7720 PacketLogic solution has been key to successfully shaping network traffic at St. Martin's University, a Catholic Benedictine university founded in 1895 in Lacey, Wash. "Procera has enabled us to align our technology with our school's mission of empowering students to pursue learning," says Jordan Boland, network administrator at St. Martin's. "Procera constantly updates its list of signatures and applications, which enables us to accurately identify the sources of our bandwidth issues, including ones that use port-hopping, encryption, masking or other behaviors to hide their identity. Notably, Procera's support is the best of any vendor we've worked with; their unmatched responsiveness provides us with the peace of mind, knowing that they'll be there for any question we have."

Procera's Smart Campus suite provides traffic classification, management, statistics analytics and end-user provisioning -- features that combine to provide full visibility and control over campus networks. Priced for the needs of Higher Education institutions, Smart Campus combines Procera's inline PacketLogic devices -- PL8820, PL8720 and PL7720 -- with the PacketLogic Intelligence Center and the educational edition, PSM-E, of PacketLogic Subscriber Manager.

Vega Business Technologies, which provides technology solutions for Higher Education customers, assists universities in deploying Procera's Smart Campus suite. "In our three-year history of working with the PacketLogic product line, we've found it to be the network intelligence solution best suited to the Higher Education market," says Steve DeNato, President of Vega Business Technologies. "Our university customers love the PacketLogic platform's flexibility and extensibility. Only Procera can integrate with NAC vendors. Plus, its advanced intelligence allows institutions to manage high-consumption users and provide innovative mechanisms for preventing and reconciling DMCA/HEOA violations. By lowering bandwidth costs and IT overhead, PacketLogic often pays for itself."

"Our solutions deliver the network intelligence and enforcement required to enable hundreds of universities to sustain and improve their network performance," says Cam Cullen, VP of Global Marketing for Procera. "At the same time, Higher Education is the playground for new applications, so Procera's university customers help maintain our international scope and our leading database of signature applications."

Procera will be exhibiting at EDUCAUSE 2011 in booth 761 in Philadelphia from October 18 to 21. This conference showcases "The Best Thinking in Higher Ed IT." For more information on Procera Networks, please visit www.proceranetworks.com.
