US Government Spending on DPI

  
A report by Market Research Media predicts that the US government concludes that "DPI technology is in a favorable position to emerge as a major line of cyber defense for years to come. The U.S. Government Deep Packet Inspection market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 31% from 2013 to around US$ 1.8 Billion by 2018. The market will see a few good years of explosive growth in all segments before going flat" (reflecting a $466M market for 2013).

".. Deep Packet Inspection is the only currently available technology capable to provide security of IP traffic at ever growing rates that has inherent traffic management capabilities. Recently massive growth in data processing power and new cyber threats have spurred the deployment of DPI technologies in the U.S. Government agencies".

US Government will Spend $6.7B on DPI Based Security for 2013-2018

    
A new research by Market Research Media finds that "The U.S. Government Deep Packet Inspection market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 31% from 2013 to around US$ 1.8 Billion by 2018. The market will see a few good years of explosive growth in all segments before going flat"

"While technological advantages of the DPI technology leave no doubt about its significant role in cyber security, lawful interception and data leakage protection, the perception of DPI as “postal employees opening envelopes and reading letters inside” and privacy concerns hurdle its deployment."

While the report shows a nice annual growth, the numbers are smaller comapred to the previous report, which projected $7.2B spending from 2010 to 2015 (here).

NSF Funds Research on DPI

 
The Internet Governance Project website reports that "Syracuse University Professor Milton Mueller was awarded $304,000 by the U.S. NSF for his research on “Deep Packet Inspection and the Governance of the Internet" The research will take place over two academic years, 2010-11 and 2011-2012"

See "U.S. National Science Foundation funds research on social impact of network surveillance technologies" - here.

"The project will contribute to an understanding of how new technological capabilities interact with politics, public policy, regulation, and law. Drawing on research literatures in science, technology and society studies (STS), Internet governance studies and political science, it will test and improve theories about the co-production of technology and governance institutions, especially theories which assign agency to technological artifacts .. Mueller’s research will investigate whether the use of DPI by Internet service providers is producing major changes in the way users and suppliers of Internet services are governed"

Market Research Data: "U.S. Government will Spend $7.2B on DPI"

Market Research Data analysis of DPI for the US government market (here), concludes that  “The U.S. Government Deep Packet Inspection market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 36% from 2010 to around US$ 1.8 Billion by 2015. The market will see a few good years of explosive growth in all segments before going flat”

My blog covers DPI as a technology and a fundamental tool for broadband traffic management. Market Research Data recent research refers mainly to the security needs of the US government – and defines: “Deep Packet Inspection is the only currently available technology capable to provide security of IP traffic at ever growing rates that has inherent traffic management capabilities”.

These two ways to use DPI (traffic management and security) are complementary and many companies offer an integrated product (like the DPI pure players, Allot Communications and Sandvine).
