PlusNet traffic shaping

Ok so I read the service status emails about the introduction of traffic shaping to ensure guaranteed availability for low-latency applications

How is this done?

Do they monitor each person's connection to see which ports are being used most heavily?

I thought they were going to manage this by changing contention for heavy P2P users.
Would FTP class as P2P?

As I'm sure people could easily change their P2P app to use port 21 and open that on their router.

Thanks

Ben

The traffic shaping is done by a cleaver, expensive little box (or maybe not so little!!! I've never seen it!!!) called enanoy (sp), which does deep packet inspection on all the traffic to determine what kind of traffic it is, and then applies a specific profile on that packet depending on what package you are on.
