LTE Deserves Evolved Network Support
More Mobile. More Data. More Speed.
There are billions of mobile users across the globe and they all have one thing in common. They want more: more media, more apps, more voice – and more speed. To meet these data-rich delivery demands, say hello to Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. Compared to today's 3G data rates of 2-3 Mbps, LTE predicts a future data download rate of 300 Mbps and beyond – 100 times faster.
To meet the need for this revolutionary speed, LTE leverages the power of IP infrastructure to significantly increase the performance of mobile communications. But once it's deployed, how do network carrier teams meet the challenge of high-volume, high-speed connections while delivering outstanding mobile experiences to millions of users?
Comprehensive Monitoring. Dynamic IP Intelligence.
As mobile environments jump to IP-based communications, meeting the challenges requires in-depth support. The Observer Performance Management Platform delivers comprehensive visibility to fully characterize your backhaul environment from pre-deployment to full operational status. With expansive analysis, packet-level IP detail, plus end-to-end service, device, and network vision, this powerful solutions helps to optimize 4G LTE service and each customer connection – whether it's across an ocean or down the street.
For troubleshooting, look to the Observer Platform for real-time aggregate network views, intense drilldown power to identify root-cause, and the industry's fastest retrospective network analysis – which allows you to rewind the network to past events for fast and accurate problem solving.
The Observer Platform offers comprehensive support from the E-UTRAN to the Internet for protocol stacks and logical connections – with broad monitoring for specific protocols that power the LTE environment – Layers 2-7 like SCTP, GTPv2, NAS, and more. With the Observer Platform, you can also locate user identity and device details with high-level performance summaries to pinpoint who, where, and why a customer has a problem. And we generate automated reports of LTE-specific Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), to address the unique operational requirements of mobile carriers.
Designed for IT carrier teams
Get total protocol and transport support
From the radio network through the backhaul to the Internet, get non-stop end-to-end support. This includes complete protocol and transport analysis for both LTE-specific and IP technologies. Populate user volume across customized links and use the Observer Platform to accurately detect and quickly enable rapid root-cause determination to minimize customer impact.
Simplify millions of connection metrics
With millions of mobile users, there are tons of metrics to sift through, and network teams need to access the relevant statistics for rapid troubleshooting. With the Observer Platform, you get robust data statistics specific to each interface and stack within the LTE environment – with metrics that tie to each link. Includes graphic displays of volumes and errors per user and in aggregate.
Zoom in and out of packet action
Top-down workflows allow network analysis to begin with a high-level composite of network activity and dive down into individual packets within specific transactions. High-level views and drilldown to packet details and operational metrics help deliver high-quality performances while traffic moves at breakneck speeds.
Grab and store data without slowdowns
Obtain and retain traffic from high-volume networks while maintaining high-performance, high-speed service delivery. With Observer GigaStor, just rewind the network and pinpoint issues by user, date, and time. It quickly defines whether a problem is a network or application issue and stores data for days, weeks, or months.
Fully characterize the health of your VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) environment at the individual user-IMS call session level with real-time perspectives of all key metrics including MOS, jitter, and packet loss. Replay specific calls to fully assess end-user experience or gain insight into system-wide performance over time using historically trended data.
