Heavy Reading: "DPI will be widely distributed in LTE; NEPs will buy the technology"

Graham Finnie,  Chief Analyst, Heavy Reading, analyses why DPI is going to be an important technology in LTE networks (for reason we heard many times), and provides some new thoughts on how it is going to be implemented:
  1. DPI will be everywhere, moving from dedicated devices we see today to other network elements, down to the base stations.
  2. Graham believes that although DPI is strategically important, TEMs will prefer to buy the technology, rather than develop it in house, due to the complexity and the need to keep-up with traffic and application changes. The use of standard hardware (ATCA) helps making this a simpler process
An example for the above may be seen in the Procera - GENBAD OEM deal, which states that "Procera’s DPI technology, integrated with GENBAND’s data products on the ATCA-based GENBAND GENiUS™ platform" (more - here).

DPI Vendors focus on OEMing are Qosmos (here) and Ipoque (here).
