The value of licensing R&S®PACE 2

The massive increase in internet traffic and expanding technologies, such as cloud computing, the internet of things, the move to 5G and increased encryption, are challenging network connectivity and security. Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a key technology to master these challenges.

Our OEM DPI software R&S®PACE 2 delivers comprehensive visibility of network traffic by classifying thousands of applications and protocols and extracting metadata, empowering you to transform raw IP data into business intelligence.

Empower your product by adding traffic classification capabilities provided by R&S®PACE 2 to your networking solution and be able to analyze network traffic and user behavior, manage bandwidth, monitor application and network performance and enforce security policies.

Our DPI expertise - your benefit

How does R&S®PACE 2 work?

R&S®PACE 2 provides real-time classification of the underlying traffic, identifying applications and protocols, application characteristics and service types, traffic attributes such as speeds and latency, bandwidth consumption as well as anomalies and irregularities. Incorporated into network functions such as routers, gateways and firewalls, R&S®PACE 2 provides the intelligence necessary to reroute, quarantine or block traffic and create activity logs necessary for traffic reporting and analysis.

ipoque ensure the highest classification accuracy by using a wide variety of leading-edge classification techniques, including machine learning (ML), metadata extraction, pattern matching and behavioral and statistical analysis. By combining them, R&S®PACE 2 can classify applications and protocols reliably despite encryption and obfuscation.

App traffic continues to grow massively

With continuously evolving network protocols and applications, frequent application and protocol signature updates to the DPI library will become very critical over the coming years. Every day, the world produces 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. Added up, this amounts to 58 zettabytes of data created in 2020 alone. An estimated 130 billion apps were downloaded in 2020, up 10 % from 2019 and up from a mere 8 billion in 2010. Furthermore, it is likely that the COVID-19 pandemic may accelerate these trends even faster than previously expected, as more employees work remotely and as more cloud infrastructure is built to enable this.

Only an up to date DPI library ensures accurate IP traffic classification

The frequency of DPI library updates directly impacts the effectiveness of networking solutions. Not keeping the library updated regularly means that the DPI engine may not match all signatures. Frequently updated traffic signatures greatly enhance traffic visibility and the accuracy of network performance and security reports.

R&S®PACE 2 takes care of updates seamlessly and has been earning its trust with a wide range of global customers in the network management and IT security field for many years. Our dedicated laboratories, led by our traffic forensics teams, analyze gigabits of traffic on the network every hour and provide updates to our DPI libraries almost instantly. Continuous performance and reliability testing ensures that no application remains undetected and enables a smooth operation.
