IP Traffic Management


With approximately 2 Billion websites today and 60,000 apps created per month on Google Play alone it is plain to see that the mobile internet is a fast moving environment.

It is also an increasingly Dark/Opaque environment due to the increased volume of encrypted traffic.  Taken together the rate of change, the volume of data, and the extent of encryption adds a whole new dimension into the mix.

In providing data service in this environment, you as the Operator face three challenges:

  1. Can Customer’s access be protected from unwanted content/sites?
  2. Can traffic be analysed & packet inspected to avoid revenue loss?
  3. Can all the traffic be analysed for consumption and capacity trends?
