The DPI software library R&S PACE 2 detects and classifies thousands of applications and protocols. Used by network analytics, network security and traffic management vendors, R&S PACE 2 is a powerful and reliable tool which combines deep packet inspection and behavioral traffic analysis – regardless of whether the protocols use advanced obfuscation, port-hopping techniques or encryption. DPI delivers clear visibility on the nature of IP traffic, on whether it is wanted or unwanted, good or malicious. 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
