Procera Networks Digs Deeper with Content Intelligence

 Procera Networks is enhancing its Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology with a PacketLogic Content Intelligence solution that is capable of correlating the categories of content consumed by broadband subscribers for up to 100 million URLs.

The content categorization occurs with minimal performance impact to any of the PacketLogic Real-Time Enforcement systems.

Procera Networks said a single one of its PL20000 platforms can replace several racks of competing content categorization or filtering solutions, in addition to performing Intelligent Policy Enforcement.

PacketLogic Content Intelligence solutions are currently in trials worldwide, and will be generally available in Q2 2013.

“From the service provider perspective, Procera is delivering the final piece of the puzzle in understanding and responding to what is happening on their networks,” said Jim Brear, president and CEO for Procera Networks. “In adding content categorization intelligence to location, subscriber and application intelligence, operators now have even greater control in delivering the highest quality of experience to consumers. This adds the dimension of content to our understanding of user context which is truly differentiating.”

The traffic landscape on the Internet is dramatically changing, with streaming video driving usage, social networks dominating consumer on-line activities, and traffic often secured using SSL.
