Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) Market will Exceed $2B in 2016
By Ed Silverstein
The Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) market will exceed $2 billion in 2016, according to a new study from Strategy Analytics (News - Alert).
The DPI market has new players like Neuralitic Systems. The company was recently awarded a patent for “context aware” DPI. Another new player is Qosmos (News - Alert), which “provides DPI solutions for integration into numerous network elements by large equipment vendors,” according to a Strategy Analytics statement.
In addition, standalone DPI solutions vendors Allot (News - Alert) Communications, Sandvine and Procera Networks are the main players in that sector.
Allot Communications leads in revenue and number of innovations, Strategy Analytics said. During the most recent quarter, it saw a 40 percent increase in revenue when compared to the same quarter in 2011.
Also, DPI is becoming more important to reduce costs, improve user experience, and provide service delivery in mobile networks, the study adds.
“DPI is becoming a strategic weapon for mobile operators as they seek to control and monetize mobile data traffic, and leading vendors are stepping up to meet evolving operator needs,” Susan Welsh de Grimaldo, director, Mobile Broadband Opportunity, Strategy Analytics, said in a recent statement from the firm that was carried on TMCnet. “Better Quality of Experience (QoE) for mobile data services requires better tools in the network, with more granular visibility into traffic flowing over networks.”
The predictions about the DPI market are included in a report, “Leaders in DPI/Policy Control Targeting Top Needs of Mobile Operators.”
“Top DPI vendors are supporting new operator revenue growth by integrating real-time charging, subscriber analytics, policy, and traffic optimization—especially for video—all to enhance customer satisfaction and QoE,” Sue Rudd, director, Service Provider Analysis, added in the recent firm statement about the report.
