This project improved network operations in Asia Pacific in the area of Lawful Intercept.
OpenLI is the only open source software capable of meeting the ETSI standards for lawful interception. OpenLI has achieved broad acceptance among network operators in New Zealand but is not well known in other countries. It has benefits beyond low cost in that OpenLI is easy to deploy and maintain and is capable of high performance (i.e. multiple Gbps of concurrent interception).
This project worked with APNIC to reach out to operators in other Asia Pacific jurisdictions to understand their requirements for lawful intercept. It then provided development, training and other improvements as required to meet those requirements. It also involved the development of an engagement process to collaborate with network operators to deploy OpenLI and demonstrate that it is capable of meeting their lawful intercept requirements.
The long term aim is to move OpenLI to a sustainable model where the software is reliable and well maintained and continuously developed to meet new network and law enforcement requirements.
The final report is available here.
