Infonetics Research updated its DPI market forecast. Shira Levine (picture), directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research, forecasts that ".. the standalone deep packet inspection (DPI) product market to grow to $2.1 billion by 2015 .. Sandvine once again is the revenue leader in the worldwide standalone DPI market, followed by Allot and Cisco". Previously, the forecast was for "$1.5B by 2014" (here).
".. US operators hesitant to do any widespread deployments of deep packet inspection (DPI) technology .. We anticipate particularly dramatic growth in emerging markets in Asia, the Middle East and Africa .. Over time, the influence of DPI technology that is integrated into network equipment will limit growth in the standalone DPI market; however, Infonetics believes operators will continue to implement both in their network environments, possibly deploying standalone DPI products at the core of their networks and integrated DPI capabilities further out toward the access points"
