Designed with unique flexibility, scalability and versatility, the IP probe, based on deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, meets the demands of network analytics and cybersecurity vendors, as well as those of system integrators, regardless of set up and use case.

Network analytics vendors are dealing with growing traffic rates and stagnating budgets, while the communications industry demands evermore advanced solutions with customized use cases. In this sensitive market situation, building your own IP probing system can turn out inefficient and even risky, while many third-party IP probes require high integration and adaptation efforts. To address these needs, Rohde & Schwarz offers the new OEM software IP probe, a lightweight and customizable product that is scalable to meet every demand. In this way, vendors can include customized probing functionalities in their systems without development efforts – unlocking time and money to concentrate on their core competencies.

With the market-leading DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 and a fast packet-processing library at the core of R&S®Net Sensor OEM, vendors obtain real-time visibility into both plain and encrypted network traffic, as well as information on traffic KPIs. Weekly signature updates ensure that traffic classification is always up-to-date. User and control plane correlation allows resolving network data at the subscriber level and gaining insights into subscriber behavior for analytics use cases.


Optional modules like a GUI, a database or additional aggregation and correlation functions can be flexibly added on demand, adapted to individual use cases. Mobile, fixed line and pcap support, granular reports in real time or aggregated values as big data input enable versatile deployments. Scalable up to several Tbps, the solution also offers improved performance. A single reporting interface, even in deployments with multiple probes, helps to minimize integration efforts.

With open APIs, flexible data export functions and dedicated technical support teams, R&S®Net Sensor OEM is designed to be seamlessly integrated into every analytics system. The installation is cost-efficient thanks to COTS hardware and virtualization.

“We understand the needs of network software and equipment vendors,” said Dirk Czepluch, CEO at ipoque. “Developing probing functionalities in-house takes a lot of time and effort. We have 14 years of experience in IP traffic analytics and gladly offer our expertise as a customizable solution which allows vendors to save costs and turn network data into intelligence.”
