Apart from the rapidly increasing demand for quality of service (QoS), bandwidth as well as speed, there is also an increase in the number of security risks associated with the cyber world. These dynamic security risks pose major threats for individuals, governments and enterprises across the globe. One way of dealing with these threats, is the use of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). DPI is a technology that monitors the payload content of IP packets being transmitted across a network. The payload contains the application layer data i.e. the actual user data that is being transmitted. In a nutshell, what DPI does is to provide network visibility and maintains the security and integrity of networks.

With an exponential increase in the number of subscribers of data services, DPI is increasingly gaining popularity with service providers to make the network application aware. Mobile operators are also turning to DPI in order to monetize as well as control mobile data traffic. Though traffic management is the main use of DPI, there is an increasing level of interest in other applications such as new service and pricing models, video optimization and software defined networks (SDN). Some of the key players in this market include Allot Communications, Procera Networks, Inc. Sandvine Corporation, Arbor Networks, and Cisco Systems.
