The Explorer products show how BGP routing events affect service traffic paths and performance in real time. Historical analysis and interactive modeling capabilities help network teams optimize BGP peering relationships.

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) helps choose a path through the Internet, usually by selecting the shortest route to the destination. BGP routers gather information about the networks they areconnected to, then propagate this information to neighbors enabling routing across the entire internet. This design simplifies the process of inter-domain routing and is the number one reason why BGP was adopted over other protocols and has enabled the Internet to grow as fast as it did.
Packet Design was founded with the goal of closing a critical network service assurance gap. Myriad vendor tools monitor and measure infrastructure health, bandwidth consumption, traffic composition, application response times, etc., but only Packet Design correlates the performance of critical services delivered across the network to routing behavior, in real time. When OSS/NMS dashboards are green but users are complaining of intermittent service outages or poor performance, Packet Design tells you why.
Over the years, our product portfolio has expanded from routing analytics to a service assurance suite that is used in the world’s largest and most complex networks. Today, hundreds of network operators use the Explorer products to improve network availability and performance, deliver new services faster and more economically, and improve customer satisfaction.
But we are just getting started. Packet Design’s vision is to be the premier source of intelligence to optimize the performance and control of physical and virtual networks. We are delivering vendor-agnostic SDN service management and orchestration products, and are working with early adopters to help them achieve first-mover competitive advantages.
