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.
Standalone DPI solutions vendors Allot Communications, Sandvine (News - Alert) and Procera Networks are the main players in that sector.
