IP Traffic Management &
Virtual Deep Packet

Reboot your DPI - monetize your IP traffic

Deep Packet Inspection ... or Dead Piece of Investment?

Maximum cost – minimum benefit. Outdated appliance DPIs demand dedicated hardware and come with service restrictions. These passive DPIs cannot fully monetize real-time use cases such as ad-blocking, content filtering, and QoE monitoring. And that’s before you even consider that increasing encrypted traffic means your DPI is seeing less and less.

Reboot your DPI - monetize your IP traffic flows

vDPI virtual Deep Packet Inspection - awardA flexible and agile virtualized architecture including virtual Deep Packet Inspection is the game changer for driving costs down and revenues up. Openwave Mobility's fully virtualized IP Traffic Management suite enables operators to re-insert themselves back into the path of IP traffic flows and add unique value that can be monetized immediately.

Our IP Traffic Management Product Suite

IP Traffic Manager

Our IP Traffic Manager (IP-TM) is a software-only Virtual Network Function (VNF) that runs entirely on COTS hardware. It provides a flexible plug-in platform that continuously performs packet/session classification and uses this to invoke a complete set of value added services. IP-TM is a new and far more flexible approach for operators moving to NFV that delivers revenue-generating services in a virtualized environment using COTS hardware.

60 seconds: DPI is dead! Long live … what exactly? Indranil Chatterjee provides the answer.


  • IPTM delivers all the classic mobile operator use cases including ad-blocking, content filtering, and QoE monitoring.
  • IPTM provides new emerging use-cases such as data flow & packaging options for users, and for IoT.
  • Employs leading edge vDPI virtual Deep Packet Inspection technology from Openwave Mobility
  • When combined with other plug-ins from Openwave Mobility, IP-TM extends its sophisticated service-chaining to deliver targeted promotions, and optimization of encrypted and unencrypted video.

IP Traffic Filter

IP Traffic Filter delivers content categorization and filtering in real-time to classify content, from adult to games, or gambling to search engines. It enables use cases for example BYOD to work for enterprises, blocking inappropriate content for minors, and blocking  unwanted content such as advertising.

  • Categorization is dynamic and selectively invoked (for example based on the user’s profile or a central policy).
  • Categorization works for both encrypted and unencrypted traffic.
  • IP Traffic Filter learns over time, improving coverage and accuracy for the long tail of web content.

Integra – NFV Platform

Integra is Openwave Mobility’s core NFV platform, providing the underlying architecture for all our Traffic Management solutions including IP-TM, IP Traffic Filter, Video Optimization, Secure Traffic Management and PPI.

Integra has a rich history of enabling carriers around the globe to manage and monetize growing mobile traffic. It provides the single point in a mobile operator’s network for service orchestration / chaining and dynamic policy enforcement, and intelligently detects exactly when and where to add value. Using the Integra framework as the basis of a number of VNFs, this provides operators with the means to transparently manage next-generation IP traffic streams and orchestrate value added services.

  • Deployed many times and across all geographies
  • Combines layer 2-3 speed with layer 7 capabilities to handle both encrypted and unencrypted traffic flows
  • Software scales on COTS x86 Blades, delivering low latency & high capacity for application service orchestration
  • Integrates with a number of key providers for virtualization architecture including our key partners Cisco, HP and Huawei
