New Yankee Group Report Shows DPI Boosts Service Provider Revenue Streams

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- New research from industry consultant Yankee Group has found that network operators can reverse their trend of flat or decreasing average revenue per user (ARPU) for service providers by leveraging deep packet inspection (DPI) technology.

In a report titled "Knowledge is Power: The Role of Deep Packet Inspection in Generating New Revenue Streams," Yankee Group analysts found that "DPI is an emerging solution to creating new revenue sources and achieving revenue growth objectives."

"DPI equips service providers with subscriber and application awareness by providing highly granular visibility into application usage and subscriber behavior," said Mark Bieberich, vice president, Yankee Group. "With the granular visibility and control DPI provides, operators can introduce a variety of tiered service plans, applications-specific packages and content delivery structures."

Allot Communications, a leader in IP service optimization solutions based on DPI, can discuss Yankee Group's findings and the new return-on-investment (ROI) model Yankee has developed that network operators can use to quantify the value of DPI solutions.

"The Yankee Group research provides a new ROI model -- tested with service providers around the world -- that clearly shows how DPI technologies can deliver a strong payback by enabling deployment of new services," said Azi Ronen, Allot's EVP of Corporate Development. "Broadband users are demanding an ever-increasing range of new services, such as voice-over-IP, streaming video and interactive gaming. DPI can help service providers meet customer demands and ensure Quality of Service, while minimizing investments in new network infrastructure -- which in turn is expected to help service providers generate more revenue."

The Yankee Group ROI model is "based on the rate of return an operator can expect upon implementing a tiered subscription model leveraging subscriber and application intelligence enabled by DPI," according to the report.
