The Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) market will top $2 billion in 2016 as DPI expands its role as a core element of cost reduction, improved user experience, and new service delivery in mobile networks, according to a Strategy Analytics Mobile Broadband Opportunities service report.
The report, titled “Leaders in DPI/Policy Control Targeting Top Needs of Mobile Operators,” observed new players like Neuralitic Systems has received a patent for context aware DPI and companies like Qosmos supplying DPI solutions for integration into numerous network elements by large equipment vendors.
In parallel, vendors with standalone DPI solutions are also evolving rapidly. Among pure-play DPI companies, Allot Communications has become the revenue and innovation leader, and has just reported another strong quarter with 40% revenue growth from last year.
Strategy Analytics said 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 quality of experience.
