Over the last few years, high penetration of sophisticated devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets into the market has resulted in a surge in network traffic. Apart from the rapidly increasing demand for quality of service (QoS), bandwidth as well as speed, there is also an increase in the number of security risks associated with the cyber world. These dynamic security risks pose major threats for individuals, governments and enterprises across the globe. One way of dealing with these threats, is the use of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). DPI is a technology that monitors the payload content of IP packets being transmitted across a network. The payload contains the application layer data i.e. the actual user data that is being transmitted. In a nutshell, what DPI does is to provide network visibility and maintains the security and integrity of networks. Transparency Market Research
The rapid growth in mobile data networks is proving to be a huge opportunity for DPI and policy enforcement system vendors. With an exponential increase in the number of subscribers of data services, DPI is increasingly gaining popularity with service providers to make the network application aware. Mobile operators are also turning to DPI in order to monetize as well as control mobile data traffic. Though traffic management is the main use of DPI, there is an increasing level of interest in other applications such as new service and pricing models, video optimization and software defined networks (SDN). Some of the key players in this market include Allot Communications, Procera Networks, Inc. Sandvine Corporation, Arbor Networks, and Cisco Systems.
Some of the factors driving this market include increasing number of broadband users across the globe, increased mobile device penetration in the market and the increasing competitive pressure across network operators. Some of the common reasons for the adoption of DPI include enterprise data security, law enforcement, traffic prioritization, anti-terrorism and information contract. Mobile operators can use DPI to help troubleshoot at a subscriber and device level and can also use the data collected for up selling opportunities. DPI can also be used for targeted advertising wherein the web browsing habits of a subscriber are monitored, thus gaining insights into the subscriber’s interests
The shift to bandwidth heavy services ranging from voice and video to high-definition (HD) video on demand (VoD) is a clear indication of an increase in the burden on network infrastructure. In addition to this, security breaches on the network typically cost companies millions of dollars annually. These breaches not only affect the customers, but also service providers as post such security breaches, it is possible that the customers choose another provider that advertise higher security.
An increase in the degree of competition between the service providers translates to the need for them to be able to develop and deploy different and enhanced offerings in order to stay ahead. Service providers need to be able to deal with the explosive demand for bandwidth, traffic management as well as application and network security. Being able to provide a high level of quality of experience (QoE) while ensuring new revenue models, is what will set the service providers apart. In order to be able to achieve the aforementioned tasks, service providers turn to deep packet inspection (DPI). DPI is a surveillance technology that enables Internet service providers (ISPs) to monitor, record and take informed decisions based on the content of data packets in real time.
