Packet inspection/traffic management

Continuous Snags 12 DPI wins

SAN DIEGO -- Continuous Computing(r), the only company deploying uniquely architected systems comprised of telecom platforms and Trillium(r) software, today announced escalating deployments of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology by wireless operators in order to manage rapidly growing mobile broadband usage and provide increased network security. The company revealed it has secured 12 DPI design wins with Network Equipment Providers and estimates that its DPI technology is being used in more than 10 Tier One mobile operator networks globally.

"The economics of today's mobile broadband business model has the potential to cripple wireless operators. Due to flat-rate data plans, wireless usage is increasing significantly faster than revenues, leaving carriers struggling to balance profitability with required network capacity expansion," said Manish Singh, Continuous Computing's vice president of product line management. "In an environment where wireless traffic is doubling every nine months and network capacity is inherently limited by spectrum, the anticipated gains from WiMAX and Long Term Evolution (LTE) will not be enough to resolve the bandwidth challenges on their own. As such, mobile operators are using DPI traffic management to make their existing bandwidth pipes work smarter and ensure sufficient quality of service for all subscribers."
