    1. 1. Packet Processing Solutions Why DPI Is Essential for Mobile Broadband
    2. 2. Critical Challenges for Mobile Broadband <ul><li>Tyranny of the Minority </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wireless bandwidth is a shared resource </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>P2P applications devour available bandwidth </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Quality = Prioritization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>QoS requires managed delivery of voice, video, data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bandwidth demand will continue to out-pace supply </li></ul></ul><ul><li>IP Security </li></ul><ul><ul><li>LTE is an “All-IP” network </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ever-emerging new threats – DDoS, IDS, IPS </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Challenges…and Opportunities <ul><li>Voice revenues saturating </li></ul><ul><li>Broadband driving growth </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Doubling every 9 months! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Only 20% capacity gain / yr </li></ul><ul><li>Video = network killer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Brings network to its knees! </li></ul></ul>Source: IDC Source: Cisco Visual Networking Index, 2009 The “ Exa-Flood ” is coming…
    4. 4. What Is Driving this Growth? Mobile Internet Devices Demographics Devices Demand Internet Generation Internet Apps & Content
    5. 5. DPI’s Role in Mobile Broadband <ul><ul><li>Look inside packets and quickly decide… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Drop? Modify? Prioritize? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Security, Traffic Management </li></ul><ul><li>IDS / IPS / firewall </li></ul><ul><li>Security gateway </li></ul><ul><li>Subscriber traffic shaping </li></ul><ul><li>P2P blocking </li></ul><ul><li>Content caching </li></ul><ul><li>Lawful intercept </li></ul><ul><li>Revenue Growth, Differentiation </li></ul><ul><li>Tiered subscriber bandwidth </li></ul><ul><li>Voice quality </li></ul><ul><li>Application-based QoS </li></ul><ul><li>Market intelligence gathering </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile targeted advertising </li></ul><ul><li>Caching – mobile video </li></ul>DPI = Deep Packet Inspection
    6. 6. DPI Delivers “Smart Pipes” <ul><li>Enables new revenue streams </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tiered SLA / bandwidth allocation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Real time service-tier upgrade </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enables higher network efficiency </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Traffic offloading / throttling (P2P) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Security: IPS/IDS, DDoS, firewall </li></ul></ul>Consumer / Subscriber Network Operator App & Content Provider $ $$ Bit Pipe $ ? DPI = Deep Packet Inspection, P2P = Peer-to-Peer 12 DPI customer wins
    7. 7. DPI Applications for Mobile Broadband <ul><li>Traffic Management </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Netbooks will drive P2P traffic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Internet video = network killer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Network congestion = poor QoE </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Adaptive Traffic Shaping </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic bandwidth allocation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not all cell sites loaded equally </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Internet Offload (DPI) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Offload traffic to the internet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Offloading at network’s edge </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to rate-limit / throttle traffic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3G / LTE are spectrum limited </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Application-aware, user-aware </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>RAN-aware traffic shaping </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Loading changes with time of day </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower CapEx in wireless core </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>12 DPI design wins! </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. DPI Driver: Wireless Service Differentiation <ul><li>Key concern is that ISPs have already “oversold” network performance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Most ISPs quote maximum theoretical performance </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Difficult to now go back and charge to “guarantee” that performance </li></ul>Fixed line domain is setting the standards for mobile broadband to follow; LTE users will expect premium service levels Examples of application-tailored service packages Source: Light Reading Service Provider Package Name Details StarHub (Singapore) MaxOnline Different services packages offering different speeds; but speed boost of up to 100Mbps at partner sites PlusNet (U.K.) Broadband Your Way Pro All gaming & VoIP traffic prioritized , up to 10GB usage allowance but free usage from midnight to 8 am to encourage off-peak gaming usage
    9. 9. DPI Driver: Traffic Management Ensure QoS and QoE without expensive raw capacity increases… unlike wireline, wireless networks are limited by access capacity P2P Traffic = Wireline ISPs’ Nemesis
    10. 10. Fixed & Mobile DPI Market Growth in mobile DPI market outstrips fixed DPI… driven by demand placed on All-IP core by LTE access
    11. 11. Surging Demand for Mobile Broadband Source: Pyramid Research Source: Cisco Visual Networking Index, 2009 Mobile IP data growing at 131% annually – doubling every 9 months!
    12. 12. Will Wireline DPI Solutions Fit Wireless Networks?
