ipoque GmbH Grows Customer Base, Doubles Headcount and Expands Capabilities

Company growth underscores strength of solution portfolio

LEIPZIG, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/5g?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#5glt;/agt;–ipoque
GmbH
, a Rohde
& Schwarz
 company providing market-leading deep packet
inspection (DPI) software, today announced record growth in 2018, with
three of the five leading virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC) vendors
embedding ipoque’s R&S®PACE
2
into their solutions. To meet increased customer demands, ipoque
grew its employee headcount by nearly 115 percent year-over-year, making
significant additions to its development team. The company also expanded
geographically, opening a new office in Berlin.

ipoque’s growth is a testament to its powerful solution set, designed to
meet the market’s most pressing needs. As concerns related to network
subscriber intelligence and security heighten, ipoque enables users to
secure superior traffic analytics and best manage network traffic via
real-time monitoring and insights. In 2018, the company enhanced its
product portfolio, updating:

  • R&S INTRA to include flexible counting of subscriber
    traffic, enhanced analytics for encrypted traffic and custom
    classification group reports that allow customers to more easily
    understand protocol and application usage.
  • R&S PACE 2 – DPI to better support horizontal scalability
    as needed for large-scale distributed cloud environments, wide area
    networks (WAN) or probes in the core network – as part of preparation
    for the emergence of 5G.

ipoque’s advanced suite of solutions not only appeals to the vEPC
market, but also to communication service providers (CSPs) and network
quality experts who want to build the highest quality end-user
experiences possible. Increasingly, they are also being used for
application performance intelligence purposes, as well as for support of
internet security and parental controls.

“2018 was a year of rapid growth and expansion for ipoque,” said Dirk
Czepluch, CEO of ipoque. “In the year ahead, we will continue to enhance
our solution set – focusing on driving the deployment and performance
for full virtualization, especially with the emergence of 5G. We will
also stay laser focused on building technical excellence in packet
processing, traffic analytics and traffic management.”
