FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 2, 2012) - Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced deployments of its PacketLogic™ SmartCampus solutions at several prominent universities across Canada including the Universities of Western Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Brock, Memorial University in Newfoundland and Sir Wilfred Grenfell College. Procera's SmartCampus solution delivers intelligent policy enforcement (IPE) and industry-leading user management capabilities to higher education networks throughout the world.
These customers expand Procera's footprint in the Canadian higher education sector, making the company's solutions a de facto standard in this technologically advanced vertical market. Traditional packet shaper technologies are no longer sufficient in these environments as network managers seek to apply IPE based on sophisticated permutations of user, device and application. Additionally, Procera's industry-leading scalability and flexible "pay-as-you-grow" licensing model are attractive to schools of all sizes.
"Other bandwidth management devices had complex and slow interfaces, making them time-consuming to setup and maintain, but that was not the case with Procera," said Steve Scott, senior systems administrator at Memorial University in Newfoundland. "Procera has created one of those rare solutions that reliably accomplishes its intended purpose without being overly complicated to use."
Doug Dennis, WAN network manager at the University of Manitoba, commented, "Procera's IPE solution ensures that bandwidth is available for traffic that is critical to the operation of the University. It easily provides a real-time breakdown of the type of traffic flowing across our network, which helps with capacity planning and identifying problems."
Chris Tipper, CEO of Canadian reseller Peak Networks, added, "While advanced technologies are indeed important, Procera's easy-to-use interface, flexible licensing, and extensible platforms with weekly application signature updates provide immediate value to our customers' networks. These aspects of the product line ensure future scalability and are clear differentiators that resonate with our mutual clients."
"We continue to see strong demand for Procera's tailored SmartCampus solutions," said Trevor Failor, senior director of enterprise sales for Procera. "Our recent wins in Canada have further cemented our position as a thought leader in the category. Procera's advanced IPv6 and Network Address Translation functionalities are bolstering the company's position in the higher education market as the number of devices on campus continues to expand."
