Keenetic Taps ipoque’s DPI Software to Boost Wi-Fi Routers’ Performance

May 5, 2021
A technical collaboration between ipoque (Rohde & Schwarz) and Keenetic will improve QoE and QoS, and strengthen network security for wireless home and business applications.

Deep packet inspection (DPI) software is widely used to examine and manage the data being sent over networks for reasons as diverse as analysis and prioritization of network usage and ensuring security. The Wi-Fi router maker Keenetic Ltd. has licensed ipoque’s R&S PACE 2 DPI engine to add granular IP-traffic visibility to its router portfolio.

ipoque (whose parent company is Rohde & Schwarz) intends its R&S PACE 2 DPI engine to provide detailed insights into network traffic with application and user-level visibility. This visibility is key for Keenetic to meet customer needs by improving device performance, end-user experience, and enhancing network security measures.

Given an exponential increase in both network data and bandwidth demands, Keenetic requires reliable and powerful DPI software with low memory consumption to analyze and prioritize network traffic in real time. By embedding R&S PACE 2 into the operating system of their wireless routers, Keenetic can create application policies for thousands of applications by identifying bandwidth-heavy apps and analyzing usage trends over time. This enables their customers to prioritize, block, or throttle applications or application groups and to define policies by device, user type, or globally across the network.

R&S PACE 2 only requires 400 bytes per network flow and classifies thousands of applications and protocols across diverse operating systems, application versions and service types. It covers different regions, areas, and verticals, even if the traffic is encrypted or obfuscated. Weekly signature updates on applications and protocols during runtime keep the library up to date, ensuring the highest classification accuracy at any time.

Through its incorporation of ipoque’s software, Keenetic hopes to address the ever-growing number of applications and constant application updates with up-to-date traffic classification technology, which enables it to provide users with fast, secure wireless connectivity. In this way, Keenetic’s routers will optimize the user experience when running multiple online activities and minimize sensitivity to fluctuations in bandwidth delivered by ISPs.
