<< Back to the list

Integration of Qosmos DPI technology in the Integra Layer 7 SDN/NFV platform brings an understanding of application traffic in real-time, to improve quality for mobile services.

Paris, France – 7 October 2015: Qosmos®, the market leader in Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and network intelligence technology for use in physical, SDN and NFV architectures, today announced that Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize encrypted and unencrypted mobile data, has embedded Qosmos ixEngine® into its Integra Layer 7 SDN/NFV platform, used by operators to orchestrate value added services for mobile data.

Integra allows operators to dynamically insert value-added services such as real time video, audio and web optimization, innovative data quota, pricing and promotion options based on subscriber information, device, charging details, network congestion and content. This enables operators to differentiate from their competitors, maximizing potential revenues while minimizing infrastructure cost. 

Integra has the unique capability of addressing SDN at the service and application level, compared to the more common approach through Layer 2 – 4. Based on real-time traffic intelligence from Qosmos ixEngine, Integra manages mobile traffic (included encrypted) in different ways:

  • Directing traffic to specific services like firewall, caching, or video optimization 
  • Blocking traffic in the case of suspected fraud or security threats
  • Shaping and enforcing quality of service according to the application identified
  • Understanding and managing quota and promotion based on application intelligence



Matt Halligan, CTO and VP of Engineering at Openwave Mobility: “The rapidly increasing diversity of mobile data traffic is a challenge for service providers, who strive to deliver high quality user experience and to operate a profitable business. Thanks to Qosmos best in class flexible classification, the Openwave Mobility Integra platform is able to understand application traffic in real-time, to ensure a smooth and improved quality for mobile services.”

Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO at Qosmos: “Application level visibility is essential for telecom operators to optimize, protect and monetize mobile services. The partnership between Qosmos and Openwave Mobility is based on our shared vision that Layer 7 visibility is crucial for future networks based on SDN and NFV”.
