Deep Packet Inspection (DPI): A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Robust growth in the number of Internet subscribers, rapid proliferation of internet-connected devices and rising use of bandwidth-intensive activities are leading to significant growth in IP traffic volume and additional bandwidth requirements. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and governments worldwide are facing significant challenges in the form of growing incidence and sophistication of cyber security attacks. Network service providers, ISPs, governments and enterprises are increasingly adopting Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) to ensure effective bandwidth management. A network packet filtering technology, DPI aids in scanning as well as analyzing network traffic in real-time. DPI monitors and oversees data movement across the network, employing sophisticated internet surveillance and traffic filtering mechanisms. DPI plays a pivotal role in the provision of content-based and value added services, and helps service providers design innovative service packages for customers. The capability of DPI to address myriad Internet governance issues such as copyright protection, congestion management, and security issues emerging from malware led to its significant adoption over the years.

DPI allows real-time examination of data packs and allows ISPs to act upon it, rendering new revenue generating opportunities. DPI allows ISPs to offer differential service plans to their customers based on their usage, enabling them to prioritize application packets and determine access speeds. Standalone DP], which helps in implementing a common policy control throughout the network, is a popular type of DPI among ISPs, governments, enterprises and educational institutions. Factors such as higher overall costs and contribution to network complexity associated with Standalone DPI are, however, paving way for integrated DPI solutions.

Also called Embedded DPI, Integrated DPI is gaining popularity as it functions as a single platform that combines the DPI function with companion applications to streamline and simplify network operations, enabling operators to gain more control over network resources. These and other beneficial attributes are contributing to robust growth in demand for Integrated DPI solutions worldwide. Growing debate on net neutrality has led governments issue policies, regulations and guidelines on network management that pose challenges to the use of DPI. Technical issues such as lack of standardized architecture and inconsistency in software management also hamper DPI’s market prospects.

As stated by the new market research report on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 20.5% over the analysis period. Increase in online gaming, social networking, ecommerce, and video-enabled communication will continue to fuel demand for additional bandwidth requirements and bandwidth management tools such as DPI.

Major players covered in the report include Allot Communications Ltd., Bivio Networks, Inc., Cisco Systems, Inc., cPacket Networks, Inc., Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., ipoque GmbH, Procera Networks, Qosmos, Sandvine Incorporated ULC and SonicWALL L.L.C. among others.
