ABI Research evaluates technology vendors critical to monetizing 4G networks in the “Next Generation Optimization, DPI, and Policy” Competitive Assessment. These three technologies are essential for operators to maximize the profitability of their 4G investments and represent a $20B market opportunity for vendors in the next 5 years. The overall leaders considering both Innovation and Implementation are Bytemobile (Web and Video Optimization), Sandvine (DPI), and Broadhop/Cisco (Policy). A key focus in this assessment considers the 4G network evolution to a distributed architecture, and with this in mind:
The leaders at the 4G control points must continually innovate to maintain their lead as the virtualization cloud, and eventually SDN, moves into this market. “Virtualization aligns with the 4G distributed architecture, and we see those vendors moving fast,” says Joe Hoffman, principal analyst at ABI Research. “Virtualized and cloud oriented vendors to watch include F5 Networks Policy Enforcement Manager, Opera/Skyfire Rocket Optimizer, and Tekelec with their recently announced virtualization and SDN strategy.”
These findings are part of ABI Research’s new report, “Next Generation Optimization, DPI, and Policy”. This is published as a part of the Next Generation Optimization, DPI and Policy Research Service which includes Research Reports, Market Data, Insights, and Competitive Assessments.
