Probing systems - Neptune
Astellia offers passive probes designed to monitor 2G, 3G and 4G network performance, service quality and customer experience management. Probes enable operators to get access to a whole set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and call data records (CDRs / xDRs) to identify and troubleshoot any problem affecting customer experience.
Astellia's probes monitors in real-time 200Gbps of user plane traffic. Astellia probes monitor multi-vendor mobile networks from radio access to core and process both user plane and signaling traffic.
Astellia’s probing system offers vendor-independent, scalable and cost-effective deployment options enabling mobile operators’ teams to perform:
- 24/7 end-to-end monitoring
- Data performance monitoring and QoE analysis
UP load balancer - Flex
Astellia’s Flex was developed as a response to operators needs for more flexible, scalable and future-proof monitoring solutions. Flex is an important milestone in Astellia’s next generation monitoring solution towards NFV/SDN. Flex is available as software, running on Commercial-Of-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware, reducing hardware footprint by 40%. Flex intelligently load balances traffic across different soft probes to ensure monitoring stability.
Astellia analyzes real-time multi-vendor, multi-technology radio OSS call traces from BTS, nodeB and enodeB. Call traces are generated by network equipment for every call and data session from any subscribers on the entire mobile network. These rich call traces provide detailed information including radio measurements, radio and network equipment behavior.
The combination of call traces and probe data (RAN + core) brings unique information about E2E geolocalized QoE and usage for voice as well as data services.
