    --  Video will continue to be the dominant bandwidth application in mobile
        networks, with 80-90 percent of all global consumer Internet traffic
        expected to be video (TV, VoD, Internet and P2P) by 2017, according to
        the Cisco VNI Forecast.
    --  Infonetics forecasts the number of voice over LTE (VoLTE) subscribers to
        grow at a 145 percent compound annual growth rate from 2012 to 2017.
    --  Napatech and ipoque will assist network equipment vendors to accelerate
        the identification, measurement and analysis of video and VoLTE services
        at high speed, under any conditions, with high reliability.
    --  The joint solution will:
        --  Combine the power of Napatech's real-time network processing with
            ipoque's application recognition software up to Layer 7, which is
            critical for traffic steering of time sensitive VoLTE & video apps.
        --  Enhance QoE and provide valuable analytics on mobile video and voice
            using key performance indicators in real time, such as call time
            establishment, bit rate, jitter, call completion rate, packet loss,
            call duration, video and/or VoLTE calls and more.
    --  Napatech and ipoque are currently engaged with key customers in
        deploying these capabilities today.
