Mesh Picks three6five for Virtualized DPI

By Paula Bernier March 29, 2017

Mesh Telecom of South Africa has implemented the CloudNet NFV-vDPI service provided by systems integrator three6five. The service provides the carrier with detailed bandwidth management reporting, creating savings and improved experiences for all by enabling dynamic bandwidth throttling when services, such as torrent streaming, take over too many network resources.

“For example, we frequently come across a situation where a single user in a small to medium-sized office is absorbing most of the company's bandwidth via torrent or video streaming,” said Darren Keogh, sales director at Mesh Telecom. “The reporting available through Sandvine on CloudNet means we can provide a report to the customer, showing which user is absorbing the data and for what purpose, enabling transparency and accountability.”

The service also features AAA, Tacacs, Availability Monitoring, Configuration Management, Performance Management, vDPI, vADC, vCPE, SD WAN, vFW and DNS services. And Mesh Telecom gets engineering support from three6five as part of the service. The service is available as a cloud-based or on-premises solution.

“WhatsApp launched video calling. YouTube started 4K live streaming TV. Pokémon Go went viral,” John Giere wrote in a January blog for Openwave Mobility Inc. “These were just some of the developments that took place in 2016. So, there’s one sure-fire certainty. OTTs will launch even more services in 2017. To deliver all of this, operators have the unenviable task of balancing the huge bursty traffic loads on their network capacity while managing subscriber Quality of Experience. Poor QoE leads to churn. So, what can operators do? Conventional static Deep Packet Inspection won’t cut the mustard. It needs to evolve. It needs to be agile and virtualized. As networks migrate to the cloud, this becomes critical.”
