One of the key decision factors in deploying deep packet inspection (DPI) and choosing a solution that best fits one’s network needs, is cost. This evaluation is particularly important in 5G, where traffic is expected to record phenomenal growth rates over the coming years. With 5G, a network-wide upgrade of the underlying computing capacity is inevitable. However, what often baffles operators, is figuring out the exact upgrade requirements needed to support new 5G traffic volumes and the lower latencies, and ensuring that those upgrades meet the overall 5G network performance needs. Our new blog post discusses how underlying server processing capabilities influence the speed and throughput of a DPI library, demonstrated by a series of tests conducted by ipoque in collaboration with Intel®.

Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a critical element of 4G/5G wireless networks as it is mandatory for application awareness and flow prioritization for proper service delivery and high quality of experience. Tests of R&S®PACE 2 DPI performance show a 33.8% increase on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor-based servers when upgrading to a new CPU and demonstrate the performance impact between aligned vs misaligned non-uniform memory access (NUMA) in dual socket systems.
