Infonetics Research: Standalone deep packet inspection (DPI) market to top $2 billion by 2015

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - Market research firm Infonetics Research ( released its latest Service Provider Deep Packet Inspection Products report, which tracks standalone DPI solutions and vendors.


"Although residual concerns over net neutrality and operators' proclivity for all-you-can-eat services have made US operators hesitant to do any widespread deployments of deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, the DPI market is growing at a healthy pace in other parts of the world. We anticipate particularly dramatic growth in emerging markets in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, where operators are looking to address network congestion caused by rapid subscriber growth, comply with regulatory requirements, and support cyber security initiatives. Meanwhile, operators across all regions plan to use DPI to enable value-added services, such as content-based charging and premium services that provide a guaranteed quality of service for applications like video streaming," notes Shira Levine, directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy at Infonetics Research.


  • Infonetics Research forecasts the standalone deep packet inspection (DPI) product market to grow to $2.1 billion by 2015
  • Sandvine once again is the revenue leader in the worldwide standalone DPI market, followed by Allot and Cisco
  • Over time, the influence of DPI technology that is integrated into network equipment will limit growth in the standalone DPI market; however, Infonetics believes operators will continue to implement both in their network environments, possibly deploying standalone DPI products at the core of their networks and integrated DPI capabilities further out toward the access points

Vendors tracked include Allot, Arbor, Bivio, Cisco, CloudShield, Huawei, Ipoque, Procera, NIKSUN, Sandvine, and Qosmos.
