Techopedia explains Network Intelligence (NI)
At the most basic level, NI is simply used to read and then analyze data packets going through the network in order to determine the source, destination, protocols used and other parameters so that the resulting information can be used for making certain decisions.
NI is often used by a wide range of applications and by service vendors who provide solutions over networks such as communications service providers, ISPs and cloud computing service providers for billing and charging, data mining for new products and services, and enhancing security. This is also used by private and public enterprises and governments primarily to extend network controls and enforce security.
