  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. From smart grids to tactile UX: How application awareness drives 5G service classes

    As applications evolve, so must networks. In 5G network slicing, application awareness plays a key role in shaping virtual instances or ‘slices’, enabling network operators to maintain network responsiveness and performance. How do traffic visibility and network intelligence provided by future-proof DPI software facilitate the management of network slices and what is the role of DPI in securing the applications and slices across today’s 5G networks?

  10. The importance of SD-WANs and the need for application awareness

    In today’s digital economy, businesses rely on connectivity. SD-WANs offer predictable application performance and reliability along with secure, uninterrupted connectivity, but they need to be intelligent or application-aware to ensure advanced security, optimize user experience, enable real-time business decisions, and increase business productivity. With the help of embedded deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, SD-WAN vendors can now deliver intelligent routing, traffic steering and enterprise application performance with advanced reporting capabilities to take SD-WANs to the next level.
