While as a state net we don't deal with L7 shaping, I do know that
our largest University runs about 200Mbps of I1/I2 through a device
from Ellacoya (http://www.ellacoya.com/) and seems VERY pleased. I'm
not well versed in the Ellacoya product line, but believe it is a
little different than NetEnforcer or Packeteer.
