Vector visibility: Why DPI is a must for vector packet processing

Network traffic visibility, specifically application awareness, plays a key role in vector packet processing (VPP). It forms the basis for protocol or application-aware vectoring – that means, the creation of vectors where packets of similar attributes are batched together. It also enables a more efficient load balancing of packets within a forwarding graph. This article discusses VPP for software-based network functions such as VNFs and CNFs. It looks at how traffic awareness delivered by DPI software enhances VPP in the high-throughput classification of vectors, realigning VPP graphs to current traffic needs and managing VPP security.

Reinstating cloud visibility with deep packet inspection

Deep packet inspection software delivers cloud visibility by equipping analytics intermediaries with application awareness which can be used to select and forward cloud traffic to a wide range of monitoring, security and network management tools. For distributed applications hosted and delivered from different clouds, the analysis provided by R&S®PACE 2 ensures that no gaps are left unattended in managing and delivering critical applications. Likewise, R&S®PACE 2 enables further optimization of cloud security management by coupling inspection of traffic anomalies with application awareness.

Solution brief R&S®GSRM

To circumvent the limitations of traditional load balancing, network packet brokers can deploy the GTP Subscriber Resolving Module R&S®GSRM, which is developed by ipoque, a Rohde & Schwarz company, to deliver subscriber and session awareness for the mobile core network. Using identification information provided by R&S®GSRM, a network packet broker is able to aggregate all packets of a session and filter them by each subscriber. Packets from the same session are forwarded to a single device such as an IP probe, providing complete visibility for any end device, across any user session. With GTP correlation, operators do not have to rely on bandwidth-intensive, traditional session analysis, which is limited due to its inability to scale up to rapidly increasing traffic volumes in the core.

How subscriber awareness augments mobile network security

Conventional load balancing across mobile networks leaves network security functions with huge visibility gaps. Furthermore, in the context of 5G, the need for higher bandwidth and speeds across applications that are data-intensive and that connect to multiple end nodes simultaneously poses new challenges for operators. R&S®GSRM in combination with R&S®PACE 2 delivers deeper, more granular insights into the risks and vulnerabilities that are present in a mobile network. Operators benefit from enhanced network intelligence to manage and improve mobile network security.

Delivering subscriber-aware load balancing through GTP correlation

The volume and diversity of data on mobile networks is only going to increase over the years, making the challenges of load balancing evermore pertinent. In this context, smart load balancing through subscriber awareness can make the difference between a struggling and thriving mobile network. Traffic insights brought by real-time correlation of user and control traffic help deliver more responsive and reliable mobile networks.
