February 16, 2017 - Aricent, a global design and engineering company, and Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, a vendor of network analytics solutions, have announced a technology solution to enhance quality of service, traffic optimization and service charging.
Aricent’s Traffic Detection Function capability incorporates the deep packet inspection (DPI) engine R&S PACE 2, a DPI software library that uses different technologies (including pattern matching, behavioral, heuristic and statistical analysis) to classify network protocols and applications. Network equipment vendors as well as network and telecom operators around the world rely on R&S PACE 2 to get full visibility into IP-based network traffic.
Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity network security technology will be made available as part of Aricent’s Evolved Packet Core (EPC) Software Framework and Aricent’s Intelligent Switching Solution. R&S PACE 2 has been integrated using Aricent’s dynamic filtering capability to help mobile operators and service providers raise situational awareness, activate differential bandwidth control and optimize network resources.
Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity and Aricent plan to collaborate on various areas including:
- Differentiated quality of service and services charging based on subscriber, application and flow awareness
- Dynamic security orchestration and service function chaining using behavioral, heuristic and statistical analysis
- Advanced & reflexive firewall rules management based on traffic & application awareness
- Advanced network monitoring to help maintain security posture of a software-defined network using machine learning (ML) algorithms
