Performance, Security, and Availability for Every Environment

What is DPI, or Deep Packet Inspection?

Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a type of data processing that inspects the actual data traffic being sent over an organization’s network, and may take actions such as blocking, alerting, re-routing, or logging it accordingly. Deep packet inspection and analysis are often used to baseline application behavior, analyze network traffic, troubleshoot network performance, and assure that data is in the correct format.

Packets are fundamental to communication in today’s digital world. Each data packet is comprised of a header and payload that carry vital information, much like envelopes containing letters with critical messages. Visibility into packet-level information is essential to both network and security practices for the modern enterprise.

Powering the World’s Largest Service Providers, Enterprises, and Government Agencies

NETSCOUT's solutions leverage DPI to provide in-depth analysis of captured and stored packets. This enables IT teams to investigate and decipher the root cause of exceptionally challenging network and application issues. DPI is scalable for the world’s largest and most complex networks, empowering them to provide secure, peak network and application performance from anywhere at any time.

Keeping users happy is a critical IT mission. Holistic visibility and insight into the network, applications, servers, and user communities—and how they are performing—enables you to resolve issues before they become serious problems that negatively impact both users and the business. When problems occur with complex multi-tiered, web and/or cloud services, you need the precision and focus offered by deep packet inspection and advanced packet analysis.

Deep packet inspection and analysis powers NETSCOUT’s Visibility Without Borders platform, whether for enterprise or service provider networks. Our ability to perform DPI at any scale sets us apart. Whether you are looking to assure network and application performance, optimize end-user experience, shore up cybersecurity, or prevent DDoS attacks, NETSCOUT solutions can help.
