FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 10, 2012) - Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced that it has received a $2.0 million follow-on order from a leading fixed-line operator in Eastern Europe. This order was placed through a key business partner in the region. The operator is using PacketLogic™ Intelligent Policy Enforcement (IPE) systems to monitor network traffic on its peering uplinks operating at 10s of Gbps in its network, enabling substantial CapEx savings by identifying unauthorized network usage. The operator is also using the systems to generate incremental service plan revenues by creating innovative new broadband service features and personalized tiered service plans for Internet subscribers on its fixed access network. Procera expects to recognize the majority of revenue related to this order in the second quarter of 2012.
"This operator continues to acquire our PacketLogic IPE systems because of their proven ability to analyze large-scale data traffic volumes in real-time on its network's high-speed peering uplinks to significantly reduce costs," said Paul Gracie, Vice President of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East (EMEA) at Procera. "This is especially challenging in a large scale network utilizing many international interconnect uplinks where the operator needs to identify unauthorized network usage, even in the case where data flows may be asymmetrical and transit multiple uplinks to avoid detection. Since the Procera IPE system is designed to scale and handle the heavy traffic volumes without suffering latency and throughput degradation when recognizing asymmetric traffic, the Procera solution is ideally suited for this network environment."
Several Procera PacketLogic features used together offer service providers like this a unique solution for managing expensive network uplink resources. PacketLogic Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) peering capabilities use BGP-derived information, enabling service providers to perform peering analysis on uplinks. By analyzing the destinations for each service and flow, BGP provides important insights into upstream link routing preferences and utilization, such as differentiating between on-net versus off-net traffic and domestic vs. international traffic. This enables traffic to be managed in real-time by the PacketLogic Real-time Enforcement (PRE) platform. BGP peering and application statistics can be reported in real-time to ensure that traffic is managed according to policies established. Procera's FlowSync™ capability identifies asymmetric traffic flows so that appropriate policies are applied, scaling across multiple systems regardless of geographical location.
