ipoque has resolved USEK's online registration delays with traffic analysis and student quota management
At the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) network performance issues had become a major recurring problem for students and staff alike. Specifically during times of online registration the necessary upload speed and general QoS of the network could not be guaranteed. This case study outlines how the problem was solved using ipoque’s PRX-2G Traffic Manager to effectively manage traffic and deploy a quota management system for all users.
Intel Labs using DPI from ipoque
Developers from Intel Labs have invented a ground breaking new technology, allowing small cells to allocate bandwidth across multiple networks (WiFi or Mobile) to delay-sensitive applications like Voice over IP or video streaming. The result is a radically enhanced Customer Experience. Only made possible due to ipoque’s PACE Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), which can accurately identify network traffic at the application level.
ipoque Integrated Application Awareness for Leading IP-Measurement
The demand for data is continuing to skyrocket with the rapid growth in smartphone and application usage. Unidentified applications are flooding the network causing congestions and quality of service issues for operators. Until now there has been no solution in the market that was able to detect IP traffic, as well as test and measure the impact of these applications on operator networks. ipoque’s DPI engine PACE has solved this problem, bringing application awareness to Rohde & Schwarz’s testing and measurement system, R&S®CMW500, setting them apart from the competition in a matter of days.
ipoque solves network Performance Problems caused by P2P
At the University of Innsbruck in Austria, IT personnel struggled with a large volume of peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P traffic such as BitTorrent and eDonkey that was using up to 60% of the overall network capacity and slowing down other applications. The existing bandwidth management system proved incapable of handling the high volume of traffic and failed to reliably detect encrypted P2P protocols. Read in this case study how ipoque’s PRX-2000 Traffic Manager has solved the .problems and restored the quality of service in the network.
PrX-5g Traffic manager convinces with effective and flexible Bandwidth management
Firewalls have numerous functions. Limited bandwidth management is one of them. As many operators prefer an all-in-one solution, they try to solve problems like copyright violations caused by P2P file sharing with blocking the application, using a firewall. But how exact is a tool that is not constructed for such tasks? This is exactly the kind of question the team of the Gauss IT Center at the Technische Universität Braunschweig asked, when copyright violations in their network increased alarmingly. This case study shows why firewalls are not always the best option and how operators can improve the situation .with a bandwidth management solution such as ipoque’s PRX Traffic Manager.
ipoque Traffic Manager Plays Key Role in Reform Project Implementation
Over the past two decades, Egypt’s Ministry of Higher Education has been developing and implementing, in stages, a comprehensive plan for reforming public management and enabling better administration of the higher education system throughout the country. The Higher Education Enhancement Project (HEEP) was formed to improve administrative efficiencies as well as the quality and relevance of both university education and mid-level technical education. With the PRX Traffic Manager from ipoque playing a key role by enabling IT personnel to prioritize allocated bandwidths, the ministry is well on the way to achieving all of its goals.
ipoque’s PRX-2G in a Corporate Network Environment Provides Reliable Application Detection
Corporate networks are struggling with prioritizing mission-critical applications and need to manage their limited band- width resources more efficiently. Read how PRX-2G Traffic Manager helps an infrastructure project developer, contractor and facilities management service provider to save infrastructure costs and bandwidth. PRX Traffic Manager enables the company to prioritize business applications in the network and prevents undesired peer-to-peer (P2P), HTTP and instant messaging (IM) traffic through reliable application detection.
ipoque Solves Performance and Reliability Issues Caused by P2P
At the University of Udine the many wireless Internet access points installed throughout the campus encouraged a massive use of peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) such as BitTorrent or eMule by students. This was taking away more than half of the university’s total Internet bandwidth, slowing down other applications. An evaluation of bandwidth manage- ment solutions revealed the most could neither manage this high-volume traffic nor were able to identify encrypted P2P protocols. Only ipoque’s PRX-2G Traffic Manager satisfied all of the university’s requirements and it effectively solved the performance problems by guaranteeing quality and reliability of the university’s network services.
PRX-5G Traffic Manager Convinces with Effective and Flexible Bandwidth Management

Legal File Sharing with BitTorrent Whitelisting
The renowned German technical university, RWTH Aachen, solved their peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing problem by installing ipoque's PRX Traffic Manager. Its unique P2P control features put the IT department in control of P2P usage and allow students now unimpeded access to legal BitTorrent content.
ipoque Guarantees Performance on Cable Provider’s Network in Angola
In Africa, Internet access is a scarce and valuable resource, as terrestrial solutions are rarely available and the cost of satellite access makes services much more expensive than in other markets. The cost of bandwidth often prohibits network expansion and subscribers are forced to share the limited resources on the network. These circumstances are especially challenging for carriers as peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing traffic increases. P2P traffic consumes ever more bandwidth, resulting in bottlenecks for business critical applications. At TVCABO, ipoque’s PRX-1000 Traffic Manager solved massive performance problems by throttling P2P traffic during peak hours.

ipoque Guarantees Skype Performance at the Top of the World
Many parts of the world still have only limited Internet service and bandwidth. Greenland is such a place and providing that valuable resource for the people at Thule Air Base has been a major challenge. Internet traffic management from ipoque is helping IT meet that challenge.
ipoque Enables Cable Operator to Balance between Network Performance and P2P Access
TVTEL, a Portuguese cable operator, struggled with a very high volume of peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing traffic. With an average P2P load of 65 percent rising up to 95 percent at nighttime, there was an adverse performance impact for all Internet users. TVTEL deployed several PRX Traffic Managers and implemented a priority management scheme that gives P2P traffic a lower priority and thus improves the quality of service for all other applications such as Web browsing and Internet telephony.
ipoque Improved Quality of Service with Tiered Service Internet Traffic Management
Unidentified traffic, network congestions and delays – when Internet service providers face such problems it all comes down to one question: Do you really know your network? This case study shows how Burundi’s incumbent Internet service provider, Spidernet, identified critical points, reclaimed its network and began managing its resources more effectively with PRX Traffic Manager.
