Empirix solves the 5G service assurance challenge
Commercial and consumer network customers have a seemingly insatiable appetite for innovation — mobile device use is on the rise, smart homes are surging, and businesses can’t be in business without a digital footprint. Customers are demanding more bandwidth, better reliability, and faster service but they want it for less. So with shrinking margins and flat ARPU (Average Revenue Per User), how can mobile providers satisfy market demands?
They can’t. At least not with today’s 2G, 3G and 4G networks. Network architectures must fundamentally transform in order to meet these demands. Herein lies the justification for 5G, the next generation network that combines the latest radio access network and network virtualization technologies into a scalable, cost-efficient network designed to provide customers with the unprecedented bandwidth, throughput and reliability that they are demanding. It is a quantum leap for both mobile service providers and their customers.
Service assurance is more critical than ever
5G networks are complex. Often comprised of both physical and virtual components, capturing, correlating and analyzing traffic across the network is a challenge.
Entrusted to monitor and troubleshoot some of the world’s largest networks, KLERITY is a solution framework for 5G and IoT monitoring, assurance and analytics. It is cloud-native, open and flexible. By design. With the lowest TCO.Read more
It consists of a library of cloud-native functions and a set of applications that leverage them. KLERITY brings transparency to networks, services, devices, and applications, empowering operations, performance and quality teams to quickly identify service-impacting issues and their true root cause.
Its by design, cloud-native solution framework puts KLERITY in the unique position to support both hybrid and pure cloud-native 5G networks.
Services are distributed across the network to where they’re needed most and deliver unparalleled scaling abilities. This is critically important for service providers who want to migrate to 5G – they’re looking to leverage existing investments by integrating non-standalone 5G radio systems into their previous generation LTE core networks.
However traditional monitoring and assurance solutions offer limited visibility into software-centric architectures, such as 5G radio systems, creating blind spots. KLERITY provides centralized correlation of control and user plane traffic and supports any combination of fixed or mobile network protocols including SS#7, IMS, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G.
