Deep Packet Inspection Consortium


A new resource site and Team has shown up in the Technology Arena!

The Deep Packet Inspection Consortium!


 DPI Consortium and its mission to improve patent quality and deter frivolous patent claims. The press release details the Consortium’s advisory board and the role NETSCOUT played in founding the organization and includes a history of deep packet inspection.

This site and its supporters are focused on open sharing of information related to the Network Monitoring and Analysis arena of which Deep Packet Inspection is the latest member of these elite monitoring solution to help prevent malicious attacks on today’s networks.

The DPI Consortium, an independent, non-profit organization committed to providing educational resources regarding the history of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology and development, recently conducted a technical training for the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) as part of the USPTO’s Patent Examiner Technical Training Program (PETTP). The training featured the DPI Consortium’s Advisory Board, a panel of leading technologists, inventors, and founders who have led the development of DPI technology since its inception and was part of the DPI Consortium’s ongoing work to advance the field of DPI technology by making historical research and development resources available to all.

The purpose of the DPI Consortium is to bring to light and document the history of DPI technology and innovation for new generations. Not only will this help to enhance the quality of future patents, by ensuring they only protect inventions that are genuinely new and inventive, it will also help members of the Consortium to respond to attacks from PAEs seeking to benefit from people’s lack of knowledge about that history.

“This consortium will help the DPI community carry the fight against those who seek to exploit the patent system. By sharing information and helping the patent office understand that core DPI technologies were developed before the patents being asserted were filed, we can let innovators focus on what they do best.”
