Procera Makes NFV Breakthrough, Lands Boingo

FREMONT, Calif. -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Subscriber Experience company, announced today that they have optimized their PacketLogic/V virtualized software solution to demonstrate over 150Gbps running on Intel Xeon Processor E5 v3 Family-based commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms, which eliminates performance barriers associated with deploying network functions virtualization (NFV) solutions. With this new benchmark, increased from the last reported performance tests of 40Gbps, Procera continues to set the standard in NFV performance, enabling network operators to rapidly gain the deep insight they need to improve network flexibility and service agility.

“These performance results are groundbreaking,” said James Brear, President and CEO at Procera Networks, “PacketLogic/V has demonstrated the highest NFV performance in the industry to date with full Layer-7 Subscriber Experience Intelligence functionality enabled. Our customers can begin taking full advantage of NFV and virtualization in their networks today."

Procera’s NFV performance was achieved through participation in the Intel Network Builders program and was focused on demonstrating that high-performance NFV applications can be successfully deployed on Intel architecture-based COTS platforms and utilizing the Data Plane Development Kit.

FREMONT, Calif. -- Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT), the global Subscriber Experience company, today announced that Boingo Wireless has chosen Procera’s PacketLogic/VTM solution to manage the consumer experience at its wireless hotspot locations.

Boingo has installed a virtual CPE solution from Procera to shape network traffic and apply granular profiles that deliver multiple classes of service as part of its S.M.A.R.T Network offering. “Procera’s platform is a great fit for our NFV-driven architecture,” said Derek Peterson, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer of Boingo Wireless. “Their ability to deliver a fully virtualized PacketLogic solution enabled Boingo to achieve the ROI that we needed for our business model. We evaluated hardware-based solutions, but they did not meet our cost or deployment flexibility requirements.”

“NFV is a strategic technology for Procera, and Boingo is a perfect example of new business opportunities enabled by NFV”, said Mike Kay, Vice President of Business Development for Procera Networks. “Virtual CPE solutions can bring the power of Procera’s solutions to the edge of the network with substantial cost savings and deployment flexibility.”

PacketLogic/V delivers the full suite of PacketLogic solutions in a software-only footprint, enabling network operators to enjoy all the benefits offered by Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technology. The virtual customer premises equipment (CPE) offering bundles all of Procera’s rich insights and actions solutions into an easily deployable Virtual Network Function as a Service (VNFaaS). Network operators can offer a wide variety of solutions to their consumer or enterprise customers as a cloud-based service offering with ultimate flexibility for both performance and functionality. Procera’s Virtual Network Function Manager will be used to dynamically create PacketLogic/V instances as needed, delivering on the promise of service flexibility and elasticity that the ETSI NFV specifications require.
