IP Service Assurance Solutions for Long Term Evolution (LTE) Operators
Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the first wireless standard that unifies the roadmap of mobile operators worldwide. LTE is viewed as the unified mobile standard for GSM/UMTS operators as well as CDMA and CDMA2000 mobile operators. As LTE advances the mobile operator’s capability to offer mobile broadband, new IP-based services, multimedia services and to simplify operations, it utilizes an all-IP network that requires visibility into IP subscriber, service and network data.
The nGenius® Service Assurance Solution provides detailed IP level insight, end-to-end visibility and assurance into the subscriber, network and service domains. This visibility enables operators to manage the IP network transformation, to monetize, support the demand and growth for data, voice and video services.
Simplified LTE network
Capabilities of the nGenius solution include:
- Unified view with unprecedented access-to-core visibility (S1-MME, S1-u, etc)
- Predict and prevent service degradations (S1-MME, S1-u, MIP, Diameter, etc) and quickly resolve issues.
- Intuitive network and service troubleshooting workflows.
- Extensive back-in-time forensic analysis.
- Full visibility into significant revenue (Blackberry, iPhone) and over-the-top services.
- Detailed drill-down into control, data and user domains
- Broad support for LTE specific metrics (S1-MME, S1-u, S5, S6, S11, SGi, etc)
The nGenius Solution provides complete visibility, from KPIs to flow data to packet details, into service metrics and statistical information gathered by monitoring all key access-to-core interfaces. The nGenius Service Assurance Solution leverages intelligent deep packet capture and inspection technology to deliver real-time service-level intelligence that spans from high level services, application and conversation flow information all the way down to actual packets. This enables LTE operators to improve network, subscriber and service monitoring and reduce time to repair.
The flexible, service-oriented architecture of nGenius Service Assurance Solution enables mobile operators to upgrade to LTE Enhanced while retaining their existing investment.
