DPI Technology - Make or Buy?

An industry survey, conducted by Heavy Reading, concludes that "while some vendors still want to keep DPI expertise in-house .. there are very strong, counter trends and tendencies that are likely to push more vendors to outsource key DPI capabilities to emerging suppliers in the new DPI ecosystem". Reasons are shown in the chart below.

The survey, conducted among 258 individuals from 122 telecom hardware and software vendors of which 60% say they use embedded DPI s/w, finds that:
  • 66% say that DPI is a "must have" technology
  • 64% use internally developed  DPI while 36% license the DPI s/w

The full report, commissioned by Qosmos, with lots of additional statistics is available here.
