PARIS -- Qosmos, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, virtualized and in SDN architectures, today announced the release of a new white paper, “DPI & Traffic Analysis in SDN and NFV,” prepared by Graham Finnie, Chief Analyst at Heavy Reading, on behalf of Qosmos.

This white paper explores the role of DPI and related techniques in virtualized networks based on ETSI Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Cloud services. It is based on an exclusive survey conducted by Heavy Reading in Q4 2013, examining the challenges and opportunities for telecom vendors around DPI/traffic analysis and virtualization.

Key findings from the survey include:

  • Two-thirds of vendors now believe DPI is a must-have technology
  • The proportion of vendors choosing to source DPI from a third party is gradually rising, and a majority of those doing so prefers to use a pure-play supplier of DPI components
  • Over 90% said ETSI NFV would affect the design of next-generation products, and over half said that availability of standardized virtualized network function (VNFC) components would likely lead them to source more third-party components, including the proposed ETSI DPI VNFC
  • Over two-thirds said the virtual switch would be important in future product designs and most respondents also said it should be application-aware

    Quotes:
    Graham Finnie, Chief Analyst at Heavy Reading: “Use of DPI will continue to grow, but the emergence of DPI and NFV is one of several forces that are changing operator requirements in this area. Vendors need to be able to respond fast if they are to benefit from the continuing opportunity.”

    Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO at Qosmos: “Our strategy is perfectly in line with the shift to virtualized networks: Qosmos products provide the built-in application intelligence required for service-awareness in new SDN and NFV environments.”

    Erik Larsson VP marketing at Qosmos: “This survey confirms the need for new products like a DPI plugin for open virtual switch and the ETSI DPI VNFC, which both facilitate and accelerate the development of application-aware solutions for SDN and NFV.”

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
