Procera Launches the PacketLogic(TM) PL78105 Gbps Intelligent Policy Enforcement for Higher Education and Enterprise Networks (April 03, 2012)
FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/03/12 -- Procera Networks, Inc. ("Procera") (NASDAQ: PKT), the intelligent policy enforcement company, today announced the launch of the PacketLogic 7810, a flexible intelligent policy enforcement (IPE) platform ideal for higher education institutions. The PL7810, as a critical part of Procera's Smart Campus solution set, provides a superior price-to-performance ratio for applications that require between 100Mbps and 5 Gbps. With support for six fixed copper ports of 10/100/1000 Ethernet and expansion slots for four additional ports of copper or fiber, the PL7810 provides an entry-level platform that can grow as required. The PL7810 is ideal for higher education institutions or high-speed enterprises looking to deploy user or traffic management at their Internet connection, or in their core network for distributed deployments.
"A major challenge for universities is deploying intelligent policy enforcement at a reasonable cost while supporting additional traffic growth with the same platform," said Trevor Failor, Procera's Director of Channels, Americas. "With the PL7810, Procera provides a high-performance platform that universities can grow as traffic increases and they discover new and innovative use cases for traffic management and policy enforcement. At such an attractive acquisition cost, the PL7810 is a great fit for higher education applications."
The PL7810's small form factor and low power requirements make it easily deployable in a decentralized access architecture where larger, more expensive chassis-based or larger appliance systems may not fit. It supports up to 100,000 active users and 2 million active flows, with the ability to enforce policy on every active flow in the system. When coupled with Procera's PacketLogic Subscriber Management System and Smart Campus, the PL7810 becomes a powerful tool that enables prioritization, management of traffic and provides business analytics through the PacketLogic Report Studio.
"Procera continues to lower the cost of implementing IPE," said Cam Cullen, VP of Global Marketing for Procera. "The ability to incrementally add bandwidth capacity to the PL7810 in a small form factor enables even smaller enterprises and education institutions to benefit from IPE technology."
PacketLogic's radical simplicity with point-and-click policy creation, as well as automated classification of any group, user, application or device through Smart Campus, enables powerful policy enforcement with the PL7810. The user awareness provided by the Smart Campus solution provides flexible adapters that ease integration with nearly any back-office and charging system. This all may be achieved over standard interfaces and protocols such as JSON, RADIUS, DHCP, Gx and Gy. Alternatively, custom interfaces can be easily configured and deployed as well. The PL7810 redefines the economics of implementing intelligent policy enforcement in higher education, enterprise and service provider networks.
The PL7810 is available immediately for customer shipments. For more information, please visit www.proceranetworks.com.
