Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) is a technology that enables the network owner to analyse internet traffic, through the network, in real-time and to differentiate them according to their payload. DPI is often used for understanding the performance or behaviour of subscribers, which applications they use, how often etc. This helps operators to focus on improving service for important applications. For instance, video streaming services like Netflix, YouTube, etc consume a lot of bandwidth. DPI can be used to limit this.
DPI facilitates analyzing and managing IP traffic and securing IP networks in real-time by providing network visibility and real-time application awareness. Besides influencing bandwidth and traffic management decisions, DPI can provide insights into:
There are generally two different main applications for DPI:
Cubro offers blocking application on 10Gbit traffic using EXA8 and EX2. The EXA8 in combination with the EX2 can also be used to block applications like WhatsApp, Skype, Youtube, etc. We currently support up to 4000 signatures and applications. The traffic passes EX2 which performs a special sampling method to feed the EXA8 with traffic. The DPI engine on EXA8 decodes the traffic and configures the drop rules on EX2.
