[Heavy Reading]: "DPI is likely to be at least as important in an SDN as it is today"


A new white paper by Graham Finnie (pictured), Chief Analyst,  Heavy Reading (commissioned by Qosmos), "The Role of DPI In An SDN World" shows that "DPI is destined to play an even larger role as software defined and other virtualized networking environments emerge".

According to Finnie - “SDN and DPI have similar objectives. Simply put, DPI seeks to make the network application-aware, while SDN seeks to make applications network-aware .. DPI is likely to be at least as important in an SDN as it is today [see chart], and making the right decisions about where and how to deploy it is among the more important choices the industry faces”.
