Network Virtualization and Deep Packet Inspection

April 19, 2017

Software-defined networks (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) represent unprecedented architectural openness which promises to drive down operational expense while enabling new services and analytics capabilities. Purpose-built network infrastructure appliances will be replaced by virtualized counterparts. New software capabilities like deep packet inspection and analytics will also emerge in this environment, enabling greater visibility and better insights into network use trends. This white paper discusses Yaana Smart Network & Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology and how it fits into the context of SDN/NFV.
