ipoque GmbH, provider of professional solutions for Internet traffic management and analysis, and TelecomAdvisors International S.A., a distributor dedicated exclusively to telecom and security specific products and solutions, have signed a distributor agreement. "For ipoque this partnership means the strategic expansion on a market with competitive prices", says Michael Herbst, Sales Director at ipoque. For ipoque arises a good possibility to serve this market together and consistently with TAI with the required technical know-how. Resellers and system integrators working together with TAI will then be enabled to offer ipoque products to effectively control applications such as P2P, IM, VoIP or Skype. Such applications are often undesired in a network due to their high bandwidth consumption and potential security problems.
Andreas Wunderli, CEO of TelecomAdvisors International S.A., states: "TelecomAdvisors is proud to have ipoque GmbH as a new solution partner, representing its portfolio for the first time in Latin America and the Caribbean. We are convinced that this new partnership confirms the right selection of innovative and 'state of the art' telecom support and security solutions. This marks an economies of scale aspect and an optimization of resources for our prime customers, Telecom Operators as well as public and private enterprises in a little while".
The PRX product line provides a tool for the effective control of applications such as P2P file sharing, Instant Messaging (IM) and VoIP, including Skype™, for enterprises (small and medium-sized to large enterprises), ISPs, universities etc.
This product line for Internet traffic management and analysis comprises hardware traffic managers for Gigabit and Fast Ethernet. Besides the bandwidth management the whole network traffic can be detected and analyzed in real-time. The ipoque filter technology works in two principle ways.
On one hand, it provides the opportunity of completely blocking applications such as P2P file sharing, IM, VoIP or Skype, which are able to bypass legacy firewalls. On the other hand, ipoque Traffic Managers allow an intelligent user-based bandwidth control as well as an improved utilization of backbone networks by throttling P2P traffic automatically in situations of high network load. All products are enhanced continuously and adjusted to the current requirements as well as extended with various add-on modules. Besides these standard products ipoque also develops customer specific solutions.
