Peer-to-Peer Filters: Ready for Internet Prime Time?

(Internet Evolution)
by Carsten Rossenhövel. Internet Evolution and SNEP (the Syndicat National de l’Édition Phonographique, an organization that represents the interests of the French music industry), commissioned an independent test lab, the European Advanced Networking Test Center AG (EANTC), to test the functionality and performance of P2P filters. EANTC invited 28 vendors of P2P filtering products to participate in the evaluation. 0nly five agreed to take part, and only two vendors were brave enough to agree with publication of the results.
