Software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) promise to revolutionize the way services and applications are delivered through telco networks, but much of the detail on exactly how they will be implemented remains undefined. In this Webinar, we consider the specific case of deep packet inspection (DPI), which is widely used in existing networks. What role will it play if and when network functions are virtualized and SDN principles have been adopted? The Webinar will argue that DPI will be at least as important as it is now, making it essential to define how and where it is deployed.
