Infonetics: DPI Market Expected to Grow Rapidly

Service provider deep packet inspection (DPI) product revenue grew 29% to over $470 million worldwide in 2011 and is forecast to grow to $2 billion in 2016, according to a new report from Infonetics. The bulk of this increase is expected to come from mobile networks, where DPI is increasingly being incorporated into larger solutions, such as video optimization and mobile offload.

“Though fixed-line operators continue to invest in deep packet inspection solutions for traffic management and to manage the impact of over-the-top (OTT) content on their networks, wireless operators are looking to DPI for more granular traffic management, including prioritization and strategic offload, and are starting to deploy DPI hand-in-hand with their LTE network upgrades," notes Shira Levine, directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research.
