DPI for SD-WAN solutions

Application-driven networking with SD-WAN and DPI


SD-WAN as a strategic NFV application can be a massive opportunity for service providers, but only if they are able to add value beyond what they already offer as managed service providers. This is why it is of critical importance for SD-WAN vendors to be able to offer advanced features such as application analytics for policy and security so that service providers can develop features to match them.


As SD-WAN vendor you can rely on the integrated DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 to identify and analyze in real time the applications and protocols running on your networks. The flexible and customizable software simplifies integration with on-premises and cloud-based SD-WAN products. Our DPI software allows you to further enhance real-time monitoring capabilities and intelligent routing based on dynamic network conditions. Furthermore, it contributes to strengthen security measures and service level agreements (SLAs) related to application performance.
