For press release

9/10/03

A team of senior students from the University of Colorado Computer Science Department and APconnections are jointly working together to develop a "pattern discovery tool". This will be a user friendly tool to discover and refine new layer 7 patterns on an open network. The completion will be spring 2004.

Layer 7 , or application patterns are the signature patterns of application such as Kazaa, Winmx , and many others that typically tunnel through HTTP. Once you know the "pattern" you can firewall or shpe off the application as desired. With the explosion of various gaming and file sharing application on the Internet and no end in site, pattern discovery has typically been the territory of the more expensive equipment makers and their laboratories.

Note: APconnections currently has an open source mini howto detailing a method to do pattern discovery; but it is not exactly "turn key". So stay tuned for access to this new tool. It is not clear as to whether the tool will be GPL'd but we will certainly share patterns as our policy.

 What some users are doing, Benchmarks and quotes from users

PHP-NukeWhat some users are doing...

-Serious gaming users are now using the bandwidth Arbitrator priority feature to insure they have bandwidth on their home networks when they need it.

-Dial up users with very little bandwidth are using it to allow simultaneous chat sessions during active downloads and the same network.

-Large Universities are using it to scale back their P2P traffic.

-Commercial bandwidth resellers are using it to divvy up bandwidth between their customers.

-Large Trade shows have used it as quick affordable solution to control bandwidth so communication links (Internet broadcasts) were not interrupted by recreational use on the demo floor.
