What is DART?
Dynamic Actionable Recognition Technology (DART) integrates Allot’s vast expertise in IP traffic identification and policy enforcement into a highly effective toolkit for managing bandwidth consumption and service performance in mobile and fixed broadband networks.
DART gives network operators the visibility that enables them to optimize their service by introducing traffic management policies that will assure QoS (Quality of Service), to monetize their network with value-based charging schemes and value added services, and to personalize their offering by enabling subscribers to benefit from enhanced QoE (Quality of Experience).
- Comprehensive visibility of all network traffic
- Regular protocol pack updates for up-to-the-minute recognition capabilities
- Uninterrupted traffic detection and enforcement through hitless signature updates
- Enhanced QoS policy enforcement and network management
- Ability to monetize specific applications and deliver better QoE
Intelligent service optimization, monetization and personalization begin with granular visibility and an understanding of how IP-broadband network resources and services are being consumed. To that end, DART provides four layers of traffic awareness: application awareness, device awareness, network topology awareness, and subscriber awareness.
DART can also identify the user who is generating the traffic. For example, the service provider may see that one subscriber is streaming YouTube videos to his laptop, while another is Skyping from her iPhone. DART employs real-time mapping of static or dynamically allocated IP addresses to subscribers and their service plans in order to monitor subscriber-application usage and to track consumption patterns and trends in order to personalize the Internet experience.
