Deep-Packet Offerings Proliferate
Ellacoya Networks Inc. and Sandvine Inc. , two providers of carrier-class bandwidth and performance monitoring tools, both advanced their DPI offerings, which can be used to study client behavior down to the end user level. The two vendors joined Allot Ltd. (Nasdaq: ALLT), which demonstrated its newest DPI technology here earlier this week. (See Allot Goes Deep on Packets.)
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Ellacoya Networks, a leading provider of carrier-grade IP service control solutions, announced the availability of a joint solution for monitoring, managing, and controlling broadband IP networks. (See Agilent Integrates Ellacoya .) The solution combines Ellacoya's deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, which identifies and classifies service use and performance information at gigabit rates, with Agilent's deep packet analysis (DPA) technology, which monitors and manages key services, to optimize network planning, improve troubleshooting, and deliver service assurance to multi-service IP networks.
Combined, the deep-packet inspection and deep-packet analysis technologies could enable service provider customers to study end user behavior and identify malicious or risky activity in real time.
