Attn: DPI Vendors - US Net Neutrality Vote on February

Follow-up on my recent post "FCC Expected to Adopt Net Neutrality this Quarter; Google Supports Neutrality" (here):

Brian Fung [pictured] reports to the Washington Post that "Federal regulators looking to place restrictions on Internet providers will introduce and vote on new proposed net neutrality rules in February, Federal Communications Commission officials said Friday .. It's still unclear what rules Wheeler has in mind for Internet providers. Analysts and officials close to the agency say that momentum has been building recently for far more aggressive regulations than Wheeler had initially proposed".

For the DPI vendors, this is a major milestone. Back in November, Allot Communications said ".. We believe that once the FCC will get to a final resolution about [Net] neutrality it will open doors for large scale projects with our type of technology. We’re starting to see over the last few months, more interest coming from them. We are in direct touch with them, doing trials, but nothing yet that has materialized to a project".
