Infonetics: Virtualized Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to Take Off

The market for deep packet inspection (DPI) solutions deployed as a virtual network function (VNF) will grow at a 66 percent compound annual growth rate from 2014 to 2019, according to a new report from Infonetics.

SERVICE PROVIDER DPI MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • The FCC has released its net neutrality rules in the US, but the issue is far from resolved and court challenges are underway; regulations in Western Europe are under reevaluation as well and the topic is rearing its head in emerging markets
  • The focus of the deep packet inspection market is shifting toward use cases such as video optimization, granular charging, network security and content connectivity
  • In machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, DPI technology is being used to enable better identification of traffic generated by connected devices and mitigate its impact on the network
  • Sandvine and Allot are neck-and-neck in the race for the DPI market share lead, followed by Cisco and Procera.

“As operators evaluate likely targets for virtualization as part of a larger network functions virtualization strategy, DPI is a clear target, though ongoing concerns around performance and capacity will constrain the market for virtualized DPI in the short term,” said Shira Levine, research director for service enablement and subscriber intelligence at Infonetics Research, now part of IHS.
