Service Provider Maximizes Visibility in Mobile Networks
This mobile service provider was introducing new services on the network to grow subscriber base. A key challenge was monitoring performance to ensure delivery in accordance with the company's goals for service assurance and quality of experience. Another challenge was to find an improved solution for correlating session data, which provides a complete picture of the subscriber's activity across the radio access and core networks. As the network had grown, the existing solution--performed by monitoring probes--was not able to keep up with the traffic.
The network team decided to conduct a proof of concept with several vendors' solutions. Ixia's solution complemented the monitoring architecture and provided the data needed to ensure service assurance and big data analysis.
