A new report by Susan Welsh de Grimaldo (pictured), director, Mobile Broadband Opportunities, Strategy Analytics predicts the ".. Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) market will top US$ 2 billion in 2016 as DPI expands its role as a core element of cost reduction, improved user experience, and new service delivery in mobile networks .. Better Quality of Experience (QoE) for mobile data services requires better tools in the network, with more granular visibility into traffic flowing over networks. DPI is becoming a strategic weapon for mobile operators as they seek to control and monetize mobile data traffic, and leading vendors are stepping up to meet evolving operator need ".
"..vendors with standalone DPI solutions—which offer benefits in scalability, fine grain detection, rapid rules updates and support for converged networks—are also evolving rapidly. In the world of pure-play DPI"
Susan's prediction is the same as Infonetics Research forecast for the DPI market size in 2016, published earlier this year and re-confirmed recently (here). My DPI Market Size table was updated accordingly (here).
