Qosmos, the market leader in embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, virtualized and in Software Defined Networking (SDN) architectures, today announced a demo of virtualized DPI within a virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) framework for 4G broadband mobile networks.
The demo is composed of a reference architecture developed by Intel®, Qosmos, and Tieto which facilitates the deployment of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in telecoms networks and enables telecom equipment manufacturers to fulfil the vision for mobile service providers. Designed in accordance with ETSI NFV principles, the reference architecture removes key barriers to NFV adoption, and provides the flexibility and inherent intelligence needed to unleash innovation and rapid service development and monetization.
The live demo, shown for the first time at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, features advanced DPI, traffic shaping, and service invocation. Qosmos virtualized DPI (VNFC) analyzes network traffic in real-time and in detail, and feeds resulting information to a virtual PDN-Gateway that can trigger multiple functions such as quality of service (QoS) management or traffic shaping.
