Optimize and Accelerate Video Conferencing and Other WAN Communications
 
Procera Networks Gains Customer Traction in the Fast-growing Market for Internet-based Video Conferencing - by Eliminating the Cost of Installing Additional T1 Lines and Improving the Quality of VPN Telecommunications Services With a Compelling ROI CAMPBELL, Calif., April 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Procera(R) Networks, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PRNW), a pioneering developer of optimized network security and compliance systems, announced that IC Media, a fabless semiconductor manufacturer with multiple domestic and international offices, has deployed Procera's OptimIP Application Accelerator appliance systems to dramatically reduce the cost and improve the quality of its essential multi-office telecommunications. The Procera system provides IC Media with optimized quality of service for video conferencing, large FTP data transfers, access to Windows file servers and email -- all without requiring additional expensive T1 connections. "We searched extensively for a solution to improve our video conferencing image and voice quality and data transfers using our inter-location VPN," said Jonathan Clark, Director of MIS at IC Media. "The Procera OptimIP appliance works harmoniously with our Cisco 3524 switches to dramatically improve the quality of service of H.323 and FTP protocols and Windows-based file services using our existing bandwidth and without requiring us to reengineer our WAN/LAN topology. The OptimIP systems installed in a snap and provided an essential asset to our IT environment." The Procera appliance provides dynamic port control for IC Media's H.323-based video conferencing system to ensure that video conferencing sessions operate without interruption across the same T1 lines that can also handle other essential inter-office communications. In conjunction with its Integration Partner and Procera Channel Partner, The Duncan Group, IC Media has implemented the Procera solution as an essential element of its converged WAN topology to dramatically improve the quality of its inter-office video conferencing system, optimize the network so that large file transfers and access to Windows file servers no longer interfere with other application and VPN services, using existing bandwidth, video conferencing systems and networking equipment. According to IC Media, all new IT expenditures were required to provide near-term return on investment; in eliminating the need for additional communications alone, the Procera system paid for itself during the course of just a few months. Procera's OptimIP(TM) Application Accelerator is the first non-intrusive, wire-speed intelligent network appliance that works with existing network topologies and equipment to provide guaranteed quality of service, reduced latency and efficient use of bandwidth on LAN and WAN-based networks. The Procera system provides up to 20 times the bandwidth of conventional bandwidth management and traffic shaping systems -- at less than one third of the price of these conventional products. "Procera's OptimIP appliances can play a major role in any converged network environment where it is vital to selectively optimize, control and network traffic for multiple application and network services across expensive WAN pipes," said John Clark, Executive Vice President of The Duncan Group, a leading Silicon Valley systems integrator. "Procera's approach to providing intelligence inside networks means that you no longer need to over-provision bandwidth to ensure the reliability, quality and performance of essential communications, especially between geographically distributed locations across expensive leased lines. Procera's OptimIP provides the essential dynamic port control that enables video conferencing, VoIP and other congestion and latency-sensitive applications services and VPN traffic to securely traverse perimeter security, especially in environments using the popular Cisco PIX firewall." The new OptimIP(TM) Application Accelerator can process up to 24 Gbps of sustained throughput at network speeds without introducing latency and provide guaranteed service levels for VoIP, video conferencing, streaming media and business-critical applications, such as ERP/MRP database and other transaction-intensive applications -- all using existing bandwidth, LAN/WAN topologies and network equipment. The wire-speed OptimIP(TM) Application Accelerator optimizes existing bandwidth without introducing latency. The appliance works with and alongside WAN network optimization and bandwidth-management systems to enable IT groups to transparently control overall quality of service, bandwidth reservation, rate limiting and prioritization policies on internal LAN and campus networks.
