Procera Networks' NAVL Engine Selected by Connectem for Industry's First Virtual Evolved Packet Core Solution

NAVL OEM Embedded Software Engine Provides Internet Intelligence Through Deep Packet Inspection for vEPC Product in a Virtualized Environment

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Internet Intelligence company, today announced that its Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) has been selected by Connectem to enhance its virtual evolved packet core (vEPC), the industry's first comprehensive EPC solution for a virtual environment. Procera's NAVL software engine provides application identification, traffic visibility, intelligence and control for Connectem's solution. This ensures the Connectem vEPC offers all of the advanced traffic management functions, and delivers world-class analytics in the demanding mobile network environments that providers are building today. Additionally, this collaboration takes advantage of Network Function Virtualization (NFV), further solidifying the approach of both vendors in relation to this critical and emerging carrier initiative.

Using NAVL's Internet Intelligence, Connectem's vEPC provides ongoing, real-time application usage information that is critical to mobile providers. Such analytics and usage data can help define product mix and potential new service offerings, as well as alert operators to new and emerging trends. An increased focus on specialized service packages, the ability to clearly delineate what subscribers are doing on the network and potentially enforce policy and service level through application identification has become a critical capability.

"In our review of Procera's NAVL product, we found that Procera is committed to the vendors that are developing products for the NFV environment," said Barry Hill, founder at Connectem. "That commitment, combined with a laser-focus on simplicity of integration and performance, makes NAVL a great fit for inclusion in our vEPC product. We look forward to introducing our product in the market, knowing that we have chosen the right partner from a network analytics and deep packet inspection perspective."

James Dirksen, vice president of OEM products at Procera, stated that, "Enabling strong partners such as Connectem with state-of-the-art embedded intelligence is what NAVL was designed to do from the ground up. As the market moves toward NFV, Procera's commitment to powering these NFV solutions with embedded products remains steadfast. We have made significant investments in critical engineering functions to further expand NAVL's market leadership in this space, and feedback from our customers and prospects has been strong -- with many already making commitments to Procera's NAVL application identification engine."

NAVL's industry leading traffic signature database is updated on an ongoing basis, allowing solutions providers to keep their products current, a difficulty with a constantly evolving network landscape that includes frequently altered and newly emerging malicious sites, security threats and potential sources of Internet abuse. NAVL is a next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) software engine that provides real-time, Layer-7 classification of network traffic. Running on all popular processors and operating systems, NAVL allows integrators to remain focused on their core competencies while implementing industry-leading DPI functionality from Procera in their products.
