Turn your network data into business intelligence

As Internet usage grows, communication service providers (CSPs) struggle to keep their revenues and, not wanting to become a mere connectivity provider, compete with each other. Lack of knowledge about their subscribers’ various behavior, needs and problems becomes acute and threatens to create a rupture between customers and providers. This leads to a loss of business opportunities and a decrease of revenues for CSPs.

“Using the data from R&S Traffic Analytics Solution, we were able to identify the raise of subscriber interest towards services like Netflix, YouTube or Twitch.tv in time and could create efficient strategies to proactively respond.”

CSPs need to understand changes in subscriber behaviour better and have to be able to spot these changes early on. This is a challenging task because such information hides in the content of the transported data itself. The Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) traffic analytics solution uses IP probes with deep packet inspection (DPI) technology to scan the traffic and extract valuable data, which are used by the analytics platform to create holistic statistics and reports.
