Telecom & Enterprise Equipment Vendors 

Strengthen your solutions with embedded DPI to offer IoT- ready  products 

Telecom & enterprise equipment vendors

To build the right IoT infrastructure and to develop products which can handle IoT data traffic, application classification and metadata extraction as provided by the DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 can be used by vendors to capture and fully understand IoT network traffic in real time. 

By embedding DPI into core  network infrastructure components such as CPEs, probes, EPCs, small cells, smart switches, wireless access points or IP traffic analytics platforms, vendors can enhance their solutions and create leading-edge products that meet the highly dynamic network requirements of a business or a telecom operator.

The protocol and application classification and metadata extraction capabilities enable network equipment vendors to offer products that ensure network functionality and service operation, network enhancement planning, bandwidth management as well as enhanced user experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS).

Benefits:

  • Focus on core competencies to become more efficient and profitable
  • Speed up time to market by optimizing the development schedule
  • Reduce and optimize development costs by outsourcing DPI
  • Leverage a market-leading DPI engine with up-to-date signatures

Industry and Critical Infrastructure

Monitor and analyze your OT network in order to ensure operational continuity

Industry and critical infrastructure

The adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and connectivity technologies has introduced new risks to operational continuity and productivity.
The Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity industrial network analytics solution combines in-depth analysis of IP network communication with an intelligent big-data-based analysis platform to support IT operators and administrators of IIoT networks by ensuring continuous operation.

Our solution provides realtime data analysis of the entire machine-to-machine communication at neuralgic points in the network and extraction of critical communication protocols (SCADA, Modbus, DNP3). It gives valuable information on the IIoT network state and enables the early detection of abnormal behavior such as human error, infected machine controllers or potential cyberattacks.

Benefits:

  • Prevent operational downtime, product manipulation and data theft
  • Reduce operating costs through early troubleshooting
  • Ensure operational continuity
