ABI Research Says Bytemobile, Sandvine, Broadhop Come Out On Top in the $20B Web and Video Optimization, DPI, and Policy Market Competitive Assessment
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
ABI Research evaluates technology vendors critical to monetizing 4G
networks in the "Next Generation Optimization, DPI, and Policy"
Competitive Assessment. These three technologies are essential for
operators to maximize the profitability of their 4G investments and
represent a $20B market opportunity for vendors in the next 5 years. The
overall leaders considering both Innovation and Implementation are
Bytemobile (News - Alert) (Web and Video Optimization), Sandvine (DPI), and
Broadhop/Cisco (Policy). A key focus in this assessment considers the 4G
network evolution to a distributed architecture, and with this in mind:
Bytemobile Unison (News - Alert) and T3100 platforms provide the right
granularity of processing power to distribute web and video
optimization into the 4G network, can scale with operators from less
than 1M to over 100M subscribers, and pack extra functions, such as
DPI, into the package.
Sandvine (News - Alert) Policy Traffic Switch provides the high performance
needed for inline DPI, scales to operator needs with different models,
and supports a hierarchical and distributed PCRF PCEF/DPI.
Broadhop/Cisco Quantum (News - Alert) Suite wins by a nose in the
fiercely competitive Policy (PCRF) market with many advanced features
for operators to differentiate and monetize their 4G brands.
The leaders at the 4G control points must continually innovate to
maintain their lead as the virtualization cloud, and eventually SDN,
moves into this market. "Virtualization aligns with the 4G distributed
architecture, and we see those vendors moving fast," says Joe Hoffman,
principal analyst at ABI Research. "Virtualized and cloud oriented
vendors to watch include F5 Networks Policy Enforcement Manager,
Opera/Skyfire (News - Alert) Rocket Optimizer, and Tekelec with their recently
announced virtualization and SDN strategy."
These findings are part of ABI Research's new report, "Next Generation
Optimization, DPI, and Policy". This is published as a part of the Next
Generation Optimization, DPI and Policy (http://www.abiresearch.com/research/service/next-generation-optimization-dpi-policy/)
