  • Deep packet inspection: Who needs it for network traffic management?

    Using deep packet inspection (DPI) is a great way to analyze Internet traffic and bandwidth use beyond the TCP headers, when its use doesn't violate network traffic management regulations. Carriers may find that if they don't embrace DPI, their competitors may use it to their own advantage.
