  1. Video streaming: networks and the game of bandwidth

    It is evident that video streaming is on a fast track to becoming the new definition of the ‘Internet’, easily outdoing other bandwidth-intensive applications such as cloud gaming, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). The demand for video content seems to move in tandem with network speeds, given that better speeds translate into faster streaming and improved quality of experience (QoE). One of the immediate effects of a rapid increase in video traffic is the strain it puts on network resources, resulting in network congestion and poor network performance. While this impairs almost all applications to some degree, video takes the biggest hit given its dependency on real-time availability of bandwidth and speeds. What operators need now are the right tools that deliver the required intelligence, timely and accurately, to maintain the required QoE and to successfully deploy their video streaming strategies.

  3. Identifying bestseller strategies: analytics and content monetization for telecom operators

    When it comes to content business for telecom operators, borrowed strategies rarely work because no two markets are the same and no two operators are endowed with similar resources. This blog article discusses telecom operator content strategies and how real-time analytics of traffic flows help them develop, improve and implement these strategies. It assesses in particular, how DPI-driven analytics help in the choice of content and content partnerships, content delivery and pricing models.

  4. Tethering and the lure of data: How to make every byte count

    While some CSPs have banned tethering altogether, others have threaded the path with caution by including extended terms and conditions in their service plan agreements. However, monitoring limitations and lack of transparency can render plan rules ineffective. Having real-time insights on tethering activity therefore not only allows CSPs to enforce what is agreed in their plans, but it also allows them to learn about subscriber sharing behavior and use this to expand their offerings for multi-device subscribers.

  5. VPN and visibility: the paradox of secure networking

    Secure connectivity provided by Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) enables enterprises to keep their users connected to enterprise resources. Real-time insights into VPN traffic help enterprises manage not just their own VPN services, but also third-party VPN traffic traversing their networks. This blog post discusses how deep packet inspection (DPI) delivers these insights and how enterprises can use these insights for enhanced performance and security of their networks.

  9. Unlock 5G speeds and low latencies with high-performance DPI for ultra-fast networks

    One of the key decision factors in deploying deep packet inspection (DPI) and choosing a solution that best fits one’s network needs, is cost. This evaluation is particularly important in 5G, where traffic is expected to record phenomenal growth rates over the coming years. With 5G, a network-wide upgrade of the underlying computing capacity is inevitable. However, what often baffles operators, is figuring out the exact upgrade requirements needed to support new 5G traffic volumes and the lower latencies, and ensuring that those upgrades meet the overall 5G network performance needs. Our new blog post discusses how underlying server processing capabilities influence the speed and throughput of a DPI library, demonstrated by a series of tests conducted by ipoque in collaboration with Intel®.
