What is most valuable?

The ability to detect and decipher torrent traffic for the purpose of identifying what some refer to as "copyright violators".

What needs improvement?

Sure, at the time we bought the product, the GUI and graphs/reports/pie charts etc ... were not fully developed.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Nothing more than the usual power/cooling/space required by a 2U server.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did attempt to do the job using a DPI engine, but the product failed to deliver our requirements.

What other advice do I have?

Don't bother spending time stitching your own solution, because you will find that to be more expensive that this cost effective solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

For the sake of confidentiality I can not disclose the name of other products, except, as mentioned above, that we attempted to use a DPI engine previously.
