LOS GATOS, Calif. -- Procera(R) Networks, Inc. (AMEX: PKT), a developer of Evolved DPI solutions providing the most accurate traffic awareness, control and protection for complex networks, today announced that its industry leading PacketLogic family of products have been deployed across three campuses of higher education: Eastern Illinois University, Newham College of Further Education (UK) and Australian Catholic University. EIU is now able to optimize network performance and manage bandwidth for more than 12,000 students, faculty and staff, while Newham is gaining visibility into network application traffic and control over non-academic use of network bandwidth to better serve more than 20,000 students. Network managers at ACU National are able to shape and prioritize IT services such as real-time IP traffic for its 14,000 students and staff.

EIU, Newham and ACU National are the latest in a string of universities that have selected Procera's advanced solution for application and network management. Procera has a particularly strong foothold in the APAC region, with 30+ universities, such as Flinders, La Trobe, Victoria and Ballarat universities in Australia, and Yonsei, Daegu and Seoul National universities in Korea.

Like most higher education institutions, EIU faces network performance issues due to dramatic increases in peer-to-peer (P2P), gaming and other recreational uses of bandwidth, as well as requirements for academic pursuits and to support business applications. Although EIU was using a legacy DPI product, rapidly changing network traffic patterns and usage led network managers to look for a more advanced traffic management solution.

"We knew immediately after the evaluation unit was installed that we had to have PacketLogic for our network," said Tim Lewis, a network engineering manager at EIU. "We found out more information about network usage in one minute than our old system could provide in a full week. PacketLogic's speed, responsiveness and intuitive user interface made it our hands-down choice for network traffic and service management."
