Net Optics Director Pro and Director xStream Pro: Deep Packet Inspection Specialists
Most network monitoring devices only need to see a small fraction of network traffic to do their jobs. In some cases, sending more data than is required actually degrades efficiency because tools must expend processing power to process and disregard the non-relevant packets. Net Optics' line of Director products increases the efficiency of monitoring and security devices by pre-filtering and sending only the traffic that each particular tool is designed to monitor. Each monitoring tool is then able to focus on its designed task rather than being overloaded by irrelevant packets.
™ filtering technology found in Net Optics' Director family empowers your tools to handle more traffic, more links, and more protocols. When combined with the Deep Packet Inspection (DPI
) capabilities found in the Director Pro and Director xStream
becomes a powerful tool in maintaining costs by getting the most out of your existing tools.
to identify and filter on content anywhere inside a packet from headers to payload. It works regardless of packet length; of how "deep" a packet is; or the location of the data to be matched within the packet.

Technology and the DPI
capabilities of Director Pro and Director xStream
Completely transparent to the network, Director Pro takes the efficiency of your monitoring tools to a whole new level. Simple-to-use DPI
filtering lets you:
- Examine every bit in every packet at full wire speed up to 10Gbps.
- Filter by pattern matching, ASCII and hex-based data anywhere within the packet payloads.
- Filter packets by Ethertype, IP header information, payload and policy keywords.
- Forward packets to the appropriate monitoring or security appliances.
- Extend the filtering capabilities beyond the conventional L2-L4 header information, and deeper into L5-L7 headers and the entire packet payload.
- Search for nested MPLS labels, application headers or text based content.
Pro makes packet Inspection and filtering simpler than ever.
The solution inspects every bit of every packet - payloads and headers - at full 10 Gbps line rate.
Among other features, Director xStream
- Match patterns in complete packet payload as well as L4-L7 headers.
- Deliver unprecedented visibility with independent offsets for each pattern.
- Provide a graphical user interface that lets administrators specify filters intuitively.
- Review filter’s efficacy with captured traffic.
- Extend filtering all the way into the packet payload.
Whether you're in the financial, healthcare, public, or service provider markets,
the Director Pro line of network access switches helps you get more value,
efficiency, and productivity from your network.
