Traffic Explorer

Traffic Explorer™ provides real-time and historical views into traffic flows. In combination with Route Explorer, it delivers visibility into network-wide routing paths and traffic behavior. With Traffic Explorer, the world’s largest organizations can operate, troubleshoot, plan, and optimize their networks with unprecedented accuracy and speed. Network engineers, planners and operations teams are able to view complex IP networks as integrated systems rather than collections of discrete devices and links, enabling them to maximize IT efficiency and productivity while reducing the capital and operational expenses required to maintain top network service quality.

For network planners, architects, and engineers preparing to build next-generation, adaptive networks by leveraging SDN technologies, Packet Design's unique mapping of service traffic to path, predictive traffic models, and vendor agnostic orchestration capabilities, are key enablers.

Key Benefits

  • Identify, diagnose and resolve network-wide routing and traffic problems faster
  • Continually optimize traffic flow to maximize asset utilization and avoid unnecessary link upgrades
  • Ensure new applications and traffic loads have adequate capacity before they are implemented
  • Simulate network changes to understand their impact on traffic and avoid unexpected outcomes from maintenance
  • Simplify the analyses required to optimize peering arrangements and costs
  • Monitor network-wide traffic behavior with the minimum collection footprint

Product Capabilities


  • Traffic Explorer provides visibility into traffic flows across every link in the network. It extends traditional traffic analysis beyond interface-centric reporting by leveraging the real-time network topology intelligence of Route Explorer.

    Traffic Explorer presents path-aware views into all traffic network-wide without having to deploy probes, and without the overhead associated with collecting flows at every interface or polling devices. Engineers are able to interact with an “as-running” model of the network, where actual traffic flow information is dynamically overlaid on a real-time Layer-3 topology map.
