What:
Deep packet inspection technology for monitoring/managing network traffic.

Yet, how deeply are packets inspected, and could DPI capabilities be used to invade user privacy? Net neutrality proponents also are wary.
Who's using it: Several telcos already use DPI in various capacities, though they haven't promoted it. Vendors of DPI technology include Allot Communications, Sandvine, Ellacoya, Continuous Computing, Cloudshield and several others.
