DPI Consortium Provides Deep Packet Inspection Training Program to USPTO
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 speakers featured in the training included:
"Deep packet inspection is used to assure the health and security of not just networks, but also the applications and services that are delivered over those networks. For example, DPI is an essential component in protecting national critical infrastructure such as communications networks, energy, healthcare and financial systems, and critical government defense networks," says Paul Barrett, President of the DPI Consortium, CTO for NETSCOUT's Enterprise and Federal businesses.
The DPI Consortium encourages anyone with materials relating to the history and development of DPI technology to submit those materials to their database as a resource for future technologists. Additional training in collaboration with the USPTO is forthcoming.
