DPI Announcements - Allot Launches CellWise

In perfect timing for the FCC Broadband plan introduction today, Allot Communications (NASAQ: ALLT) announces the launch of CellWise a  "network service that is designed to enable mobile broadband operators to manage traffic down to the individual cell and alleviate backhaul congestion in real time by providing intelligence about their network at the cell level."  (here)

See background  on my yesterday's post "Net Neutrality Speculations and 3UK" (here).

Managing traffic at the cell level, at congestion time, seems to be an acceptable (or "reasonable" in the FCC language) traffic management practice. Similar approach could be used by cable operators, replacing the term "Cell" by "CMTS", assuming the congestion is at the access or backhaul.
