LEIPZIG, Germany -- ipoque, the leading European vendor of Internet traffic management solutions, today published its award-winning DPI engine as open source software. OpenDPI is derived from the commercial PACE product, ipoque's traffic classification engine that is used in its carrier-grade DPI and bandwidth management solutions. The core of OpenDPI is a software library designed to classify Internet traffic according to application protocols. Everybody can use the software and contribute to it under the conditions of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

"The idea behind OpenDPI is to stipulate knowledge exchange between all interested parties. We value any feedback from the open source community and everyone else. In the end we hope that we can return something to the community," says Hendrik Schulze, CTO of ipoque and responsible for the OpenDPI project.
