Kentik - Network Flow Analytics

ISP | Telco | MSO

4 billion people. Billions more devices. 1.8 zettabytes of traffic. As a provider of access and connectivity, you’re scrambling to keep pace. How do you grow revenue — fast — while balancing security, performance, service levels, and costs? You need comprehensive network traffic intelligence, so you can see both the forest and the trees. That’s what Kentik delivers for network, security, and business teams.
  • “We are able to view traffic on a much more granular level using the built-in query engine. This allows us to drill into traffic data and make more effective decisions during project planning phases.”
    Dylan Mendes, Engineer
  • “Given the sheer scale and complexity of our network and the amount of data it generates, network planning analyses often took days to compile. Using Kentik, our team gets valuable insights about our network within seconds.”
    Toru Maruta, General Manager, IP Network Department
  • “DDoS was the primary driver for selecting Kentik, and their integration into our DDoS automation solution has been exceptional. We have also benefited from Kentik in regards to understanding our international traffic flows and security.”
    Rick Carter, Head of Networks
  • “When we deployed Kentik, we quickly gained live security monitoring and security investigation insights. With such good visibility from Kentik, we’re able to offload traffic that’s malicious in nature with a much greater degree of accuracy.”
    Alex Kitthikoune, Network Administrator
  • “Kentik allows us to provide network analytics to our customers, making our jobs much easier. When Kentik reports are shown to customers, it also builds their trust.”
    Adan Mendoza, Network Administrator
  • “Kentik has made it easier for us to provide great service to our customers.”
    Brad Lyon, CEO

  • Make sound traffic engineering decisions
  • Automate data collection and collation for traffic engineering tasks
  • Avert capacity crises by making space for new capacity lead times

Capacity Planning

Automate network capacity planning tasks and prioritize actions using growth forecasts and projected run-out dates. Gain integrated insights into network capacity, utilization, performance, and traffic composition to ensure the best service delivery at the lowest cost.


  • Automates data gathering and correlation to prioritize the most critical capacity issues
  • Eliminate complex spreadsheets and manual planning processes
  • Prevent congestion surprises that impact applications or users
