DPI & Content Filtering


With approximately 2 Billion websites today and 60,000 apps created per month on Google Play alone it is plain to see that the mobile internet is a fast moving environment.

It is also an increasingly Dark environment due to the increased volume of encrypted traffic.  Taken together the rate of change, the volume of data, and the extent of encryption adds a whole new dimension into the mix.

In providing data service in this environment, you as the Operator face three challenges:

  • Can customer’s access be protected from unwanted content/sites?
  • Can traffic be analysed & packet inspected to avoid revenue loss?
  • Can all the traffic be analysed for consumption and capacity trends?

Enea Openwave’s virtualized DPI and Categorization software components provide an agile, comprehensive, network-based solution for analysis, classification and enforcement. Traffic filter and management capabilities combine with traffic classification and analysis to deliver a comprehensive set of use cases so that Users and Revenue can be assured at the same point in network data path.
