Change is the only constant and it is no different with networks. As India migrates from what has been predominantly a voice-centric teleconomy to a data-driven world expected from the newly minted 3G (and soon 4G) network rollouts, things are rapidly changing within and outside the network. As new elements take pole position in the network core, changes are also impacting speciality functions such as DPI (deep packet inspection).
Just two years ago DPI was considered a solution to track rogue MAC addresses, identify malicious content sources, identify bulk P2P traffic generators and was generally classified as an interceptor for prevention of criminal activity. But its functionality has grown by an order of magnitude in the new 3G / 4G core by gaining significant importance in its expected contribution to the new core network.
As Indian operators ready 3G roll outs and service launches in several circles, they are considering future proofing their network investments by ensuring adequate sophistication in functions such as Network policy control / enforcement. Policy Function is not necessarily a new thing and was first proposed in 3GPP Rel 5 in 2004. But Indian 3G roll outs are happening now and 4G is on the horizon therefore its importance is being felt even more at this time. Besides, the EPC (Enhanced Packet Core) of the LTE network allows setting up bearer with multiple service classes (based on service delivered – video / group voice) making for an even more complex billing / charging environment- thus making policy definition and control mandatory.
