Another interesting deployment is NTT Plala, which is "Using Cisco SCE (Service Control Engine) as a DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) product that controls bandwidth and applications, NTT Plala is currently offering "Net Barrier Basic" [see below] value-added service that enables the provision of a safe and secure broadband environment. From now on, the company can establish an infrastructure that further enhances consumer security service that offers safe and secure Internet environment by combining the Cisco ASR 9000 and Cisco SCE".
See "NTT Plala Employs Cisco ASR 9000 Series" - here.
This is a rather old Cisco SCE deployment, originated to P-Cube days, and deployed already in 2003 for security and P2P control (see "Plala Networks Implements Cisco Systems Service Control Solution" - here). As we can see from the recent announcement - it is still there!
