Application and Network Intelligence

As network and application usage shifts on a daily basis, service providers are looking for new ways to analyze, optimize, and monetize applications so they can deliver high quality consumer and enterprise experiences. This requires changes on three critical fronts:

 

Maintaining accurate visibility of application and network traffic

Encryption renders most existing data collection methods ineffective. As the Internet continues to go dark, a new approach is needed to maintain a high-level of application and network intelligence, but also to ensure accurate charging and sustained profitability for highly valuable services.

 

Understanding contextual application Quality of Experience

Running a profitable network requires a deep understanding of how critical applications, such as video, gaming, social sharing, and enterprise applications are performing. However, most service providers lack the context and the associated key performance indicators needed to truly determine application quality of experience (QoE).

 

Scaling to meet performance and volumetric requirements

As video shifts to HD and 4K streaming, cloud gaming grows in popularity, and new smart workplace and industry applications gain traction, bandwidth usage is exploding with little additional revenues. Meeting this challenge on the data plane requires hyper-scalable software solutions optimized to run in flexible cloud, virtual, and physical deployment models.
