‘Peer-to-Peer Pressure’ Whitepaper Reveals New P2P Management Model for ISPs Wednesday 4 June 2008 PDF Print Cardiff, June 4, 2008: Epitiro Ltd., the leader in broadband benchmarking, today published ‘Peer-to-Peer Pressure, Evolution of the ISP Network Management Model”, a visionary network management whitepaper for ISPs keen to address the increasing demand for P2P broadband services. Epitiro’s ‘absolute coverage’ model aspires to capture metrics concerning both network performance and customer experience for applications including client/server data transfer, P2P file sharing, VoIP and video streaming. “Consumer and business expectations will evolve from being satisfied with mere access to broadband, to choosing the best broadband service for their personal requirements.” said JP Curley, CTO, Epitiro. “ Our vision for network management provides ISPs with an understanding of every subscriber’s experience, plus a comprehensive view of how the competition is performing.” The whitepaper contrasts the full scope of the new ‘absolute coverage’ model with the shortcomings of today’s typical network management methodology that fails to capture customer-experience details or provide insight into competitor performance. The wealth of intelligence gathered with the absolute coverage model enhances the ability to operate Traffic Management schemes in addition to providing key data to improve Network Planning, Customer Support and Marketing functions. The paper also explores the anti-piracy, regulatory and consumer activities associated with surging popularity of P2P file sharing in both the U.S. and the EU. ‘Peer to Peer Pressure’ may be freely downloaded at www.epitiro.com About Epitiro Epitiro is the global leader in comparative broadband benchmarking providing customer experience insight to ISPs, media providers, multi-national corporations and government regulators.
