|Title:||DPI – The Key Technology for Next Generation SD-WAN Solutions|
|Sponsored By:||Rohde & Schwarz|
The SD-WAN market is booming with increasing commercial interest and adoption plans. In order to stay competitive, SD-WAN vendors must advance their solutions with features and capabilities that stand out from competitors. Deep packet inspection (DPI) is necessary to support critical features such as real-time application visibility as well as enhanced security features and analytics in SD-WAN solutions.
Decisive elements such as network performance, traffic management, policy control or enhanced security features are crucially driven by DPI. As such, it stands out as an essential technology that SD-WAN vendors cannot miss out on if they want to secure their competitive edge on the market. Consequently, they have to make a strategic choice between building in-house DPI libraries, using open source solutions or licensing software from a DPI specialist.
Undoubtedly, as a key enabling technology embedded DPI software needs to deliver highly reliable and accurate real-time identification of network traffic and applications to lay the foundation for outstanding products and solutions.
In this webinar, we will explain how DPI empowers SD-WAN solutions with application-level visibility. We will also take a close look at the different sourcing options and the respective evaluation criteria that should be considered to take informed decisions. A real-life vendor scenario of an SD-WAN vendor will help us visualize the different aspects in a realistic use case.
