CableMatrix and Allot integrate PCMM tech
Under the integration, the NetEnforcer will use Deep Packet Inspection technology to monitor and manage subscriber- and application-level bandwidth, and relay bandwidth resource requests to the CableMatrix ODSP (On Demand Service Platform) policy server.
Allot's system, which serves as an Application Manager (AM) in the PCMM architecture, also provides protection from network-borne worms, viruses and denial of service attacks.
PCMM, a budding CableLabs specification, injects QoS capabilities into a wide range of IP-based services and applications.
For a broader discussion on PCMM technology, please check out the archive of last week's Webcast, which featured speakers from Kinetic Strategies Inc., CableLabs, Cox Communications, and Lexcom Communications.
