The DPI software library R&S PACE 2 adds IP traffic analytics capabilities to network analytics, traffic management, and network security solutions. The software classifies thousands of applications and protocols, provides content and metadata extraction and delivers crucial information from IP traffic based on metrics and heuristics. DPI delivers clear visibility on the nature of IP traffic, on whether it is wanted or unwanted, good or malicious. R&S®PACE 2 is a critical enabler for a more secure, reliable and efficient network. It is needed everywhere in the network where intelligent management decisions need to be made. Better Together: R&S®PACE 2 and Intel: a partner solution tailored to suit your needs: - Maximized efficiency & traffic visibility when used together - Minimized memory & processing footprint - Optimized for low power consumption - Reduced time-to-market & total cost of ownership - Access to technical expertise & outstanding customer service
