Mobile Network Optimization
Visibility Into Quality
Are VoIP services meeting call quality expectations?Where and why are mobile calls being dropped?What happens when we offload voice traffic to Wi-Fi?
With user demand for high-quality anytime, anywhere communications continuing to grow exponentially, mobile providers are evolving core networks to higher capacity technologies such as 4G LTE. As they do so, detecting and preventing potential performance issues becomes both more essential and more challenging, as the mix of tools, probes, interfaces, processes, functions, and servers involved in networking monitoring and optimization expands.
Ixia's network visibility solutions provide the ongoing data needed to deliver a high-quality subscriber experience reliably and cost-effectively despite the growing diversity of network technologies, user devices and security threats. As operational complexity increases, network engineers at leading mobile service providers can leverage Ixia's Anue Net Tool Optimizer® (NTO) suite of network monitoring switches to ensure the end-to-end visibility needed to minimize OpEx, sustain profitability, and safeguard quality and user satisfaction.
Ixia Anue NTO Features:
- Traffic optimized for monitoring
- Automated troubleshooting reduces MTTR
- Breakthrough "drag and drop" GUI managemenet interface streamlines configuration
- Expanded network monitoring capacity
Carrier-grade NTOThe most recent addition to Ixia's network visibility suite, the Ixia Anue NTO 5293 equips network engineers at telecommunications providers to achieve end-to-end network visibility more simply and efficiently. NEBS-compliant and suitable for 4G LTE packet cores, the NTO 5293 enables the connection of multiple network monitoring tools to a large number of 40GbE, 10GbE, and 1GbE interfaces (up to 16 40GbE ports or up to 64 10GbE ports) in an efficient form factor. The NTO 5293 complements the NEBS-compliant NTO 5273.
Leveraging Anue Systems' globally renowned monitoring innovation, NTO carrier-grade solutions feature:
- MPLS and GTP filtering
- Custom dynamic filtering to allow visibility into the first 128 bytes of packets
- Uninterrupted access for high-availability network monitoring
- NEBS certification ensuring robustness
- Redundant, hot-swappable powers supplies and fan modules
- Local and remote alarm relay support
- Emergency out-of-band reset
- Intuitive drag-and-drop control panel
- Aggregation of data from multiple network access points
The NTO series enables telecommunications providers to easily access end-to-end analyses of architected networks, validate field applications, and improve customer loyalty and support. Delivering the actionable insight needed to dynamically detect, avoid and address issues, Ixia's end-to-end network visibility solutions enable engineers to evaluate and optimize network and application performance under diverse conditions, maximizing ROI and the quality of the user experience.
