HELSINKI -- February 6, 2013

Comptel Corporation (NASDAQ OMX Helsinki: CTL1V) today announced that it has
completed interoperability testing with Procera Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PKT).
The companies’ joint, real-time policy control and charging solution, which
consists of Comptel Policy Control and Procera’s PacketLogic Subscriber
Manager and PacketLogic Real-Time Enforcement (PRE), enables communications
service providers (CSP) to offer, manage and monetise advanced data services,
while optimising network usage, improving the overall customer experience.

Key Facts

  *Comptel Policy Control gives CSPs the levers they need to transform their
    technology investments into profitable new business—it helps them combine
    sophisticated charging rules for multi-vendor 3G, LTE, WiMAX, fixed and
    cable networks with the real-time application of network and business
    policy. Based on the proven Comptel Control and Charge platform, it
    supports a number of use cases including subscription redirection, fair
    usage, time-, location- and URL-based policy, parental controls and
    roaming.
  *The interoperability test demonstrated how policy and charging rules
    managed by Comptel Policy Control could be enforced in Procera’s PRE
    product based on the real-time inspection of network traffic. The fully
    integrated, 3GPP-compliant solution provides:

       *Faster time-to-market with Comptel Policy and Charging Rules Function
         (PCRF) and Procera Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF)
         with DPI functionalities;
       *Flexibility in supported industry-standard interfaces for policy
         control via Gx. The Gx interface provides transfer of policy and
         charging rules from PCRF to PCEF; and
       *An extensible offering with comprehensive tools that go beyond
         control and monetisation of data servers.

Supporting Quotes

  *“This collaboration has enhanced Comptel’s and Procera’s ability to
    support CSPs challenged by the global data explosion,” said Antti Koskela,
    CTO, Comptel. “The integrated, real-time policy control and charging
    solution offers the flexibility and data granularity operators require to
    manage service usage easily and optimise their networks efficiently. Not
    only that, it leaves CSPs well-positioned to enhance the customer
    experience and capitalise on service monetisation and other business
    opportunities.”
  *“Network operators are investing heavily in policy-based services,” said
    Cam Cullen, vice president of global marketing, Procera. “Joint solutions
    from Procera and Comptel enable differentiated services and new pricing
    models that operators can offer to compete more effectively in today’s
    sensitive broadband market.”
