FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/11/11 -- Innovation drives education as universities are bolstering their networks to deal with exploding demands for bandwidth. The Smart Campus suite from Procera Networks, Inc. ("Procera") (NYSE Amex: PKT) advances networks across more than 300 higher education institutions worldwide, including at such notable institutions as West Virginia University, University of California Davis, Northern Arizona University, University of Montana, Manchester University, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Sun Yat-Sen University and Pusan National University.
Procera's PL7720 PacketLogic solution has been key to successfully shaping network traffic at St. Martin's University, a Catholic Benedictine university founded in 1895 in Lacey, Wash. "Procera has enabled us to align our technology with our school's mission of empowering students to pursue learning," says Jordan Boland, network administrator at St. Martin's. "Procera constantly updates its list of signatures and applications, which enables us to accurately identify the sources of our bandwidth issues, including ones that use port-hopping, encryption, masking or other behaviors to hide their identity. Notably, Procera's support is the best of any vendor we've worked with; their unmatched responsiveness provides us with the peace of mind, knowing that they'll be there for any question we have."
Procera's Smart Campus suite provides traffic classification, management, statistics analytics and end-user provisioning -- features that combine to provide full visibility and control over campus networks. Priced for the needs of Higher Education institutions, Smart Campus combines Procera's inline PacketLogic devices -- PL8820, PL8720 and PL7720 -- with the PacketLogic Intelligence Center and the educational edition, PSM-E, of PacketLogic Subscriber Manager.
