Rohde & Schwarz and Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg Establish Research Partnership

Sponsored by Businesswire

, a Rohde & Schwarz company, today announced a strategic
partnership with Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg to establish
a joint research program. The R&S subsidiary provides market-leading
network analytics solutions for more secure, reliable and efficient
networks. The joint research with the Computer Science Institute of the
MLU will focus on future technologies like big data analytics, machine
learning or artificial intelligence and how they can boost network
analytics. The project is intended to run for 4 years.

A fast and efficient identification of malicious software, encrypted
malware and network attacks is the main prerequisite to keep the
networks of the future safe and reliable. However, protocol complexity
and traffic rates grow, while more and more devices connect to the
Internet. This way, the challenge to timely identify threats continually
steps up. As a response to that challenge, future technologies have the
potential to further enhance network analytics and security
solutions. This will be a main topic in the research partnership.

“Basic research is the foundation of technological leadership and
enables market-leading products. That is why we are very glad to have
Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg as a research partner”, says
Dr. Martin Mieth, project leader at ipoque GmbH. “We are confident that
with joint research we can stay ahead of the technological development
and establish a partnership of mutual benefits.”
