R&S®Net Reporter 2– connecting the dots

In a typical deployment scenario, R&S®Net Reporter 2 receives IP data records from multiple R&S®Net Sensor probes deployed throughout the network and automatically aggregates and stores application classification information. When hooked into additional databases (subscriber DB, CRM, TAC), the application classification is supplemented with additional information such as subscriber, device, location and data plan. An easy-to-use, intuitive user interface provides a wide variety of views, filtering and drill-down options on the underlying data.
