LOS GATOS, Calif. -- Procera(R) Networks, Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a pioneering developer of telco-class network traffic and service management infrastructure equipment, and iTEC Technologies Ltd., a leading integrator of broadband communications solutions in Korea, today announced that Hanaro Telecom, a leading triple-play provider in Korea, has deployed Procera's award-winning PacketLogic solution to manage network bandwidth for the hanaTV IP video service.

Launched in mid-2006, hanaTV has gained more than 650,000 subscribers in its first year of offering high-quality video content including local movies and programming as well as Hollywood films. Internet-based video services are highly susceptible to latency and general network delays which can degrade performance and quality of service (QoS), resulting in customer dissatisfaction and churn. hanaTV's quality assurance department conducted an extensive review of network traffic management solutions and selected Procera's PacketLogic for its robust traffic shaping and statistics capabilities, as well as its Python-base API. Through the API, Procera and iTEC have provided hanaTV with customized capabilities to streamline reporting and management across its large network.

"In our marketplace, we compete with the national incumbent service provider as well as cable operators and others, and the quality of our service is one of our key differentiators," said Yoon Gwan Kim, head of the quality assurance team for hanaTV. "Through PacketLogic, we are able to monitor network speed data in real-time, across hundreds of thousands of active customers, and intervene if needed to maintain the highest-quality service for our users. The highly accurate statistics provided by the system also allow us to identify usage trends and patterns, and adapt our content offerings to meet subscribers' interests -- which gives us a competitive edge as well."
