Improving Network Packet Brokers with DPI-Based Traffic Classification
As networks become increasingly complex and virtualized, network packet brokers (NPBs) play a vital, central role by simplifying information distribution to third-party applications.
The integration of precise traffic classification based on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), can create added value in next generation NPB solutions by increasing efficiency and adding advanced features such as real-time session filtering and traffic de-duplication. These mechanisms optimize the quantity and timing of data sent to external tools and can also be used to expand the range of NPB functions to include security, performance management and analytics capabilities. This new approach allows innovative NPB vendors to gain a competitive advantage and also capture part of the value delivered today by point-solution tools.
