Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a type of data processing that inspects in detail the data that is being sent from the router.
Deep Packet Inspection reports are only available on InControl, on supported devices.
Balance: 30 LTE HW3, One, 210 HW4, 310 HW4, 305 HW2, 380 HW6, 580 HW2, 710 HW3, 1350 HW2, 2500
MAX: HD4, Transit, HD2 Mini, 700 HW3, HD2 HW5, BR1 ENT
MediaFast: 200, 500, 750, HD2, HD4
DPI needs to be enabled in the Device Details before the data is collected.
Select “edit” and scroll down to the “Enable DPI” section and switch the button to “ON”.
The DPI report will become available after the changes have been saved.
Using the Deep Packet Inspection reports, you have insight in the type of traffic that passes through your router, how big a percentage of the bandwidth they occupy and during what time.
For example, in the above pie chart, you can identify that “HTML5 video” accounts for 20.8% of the total bandwidth used.
