Xirrus releases Deep Packet Inspection tool at the network edge

Xirrus has launched Xirrus Application Control, which uses Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology at the network edge to restrict usage of bandwidth-heavy applications, block certain applications, and detect threats to the network. According to the company, the new product gives network administrators full control over the network especially in an environment where people bring their own devices. Xirrus claims their new product improves on the traditional approaches that use central gateways. The application is targeted to schools and colleges, large public venues and healthcare institutions.
