Empirix is thrilled to share the news about our IntelliSight and E-XMS technologies being certified for integration with Huawei’s NFV environment. The certification involved extensive interoperability testing for functions including data acquisition, mediation, advanced troubleshooting, real-time monitoring and data analytics, and means that Empirix solutions can now be sold to Huawei resellers across more than 190 evolved packet core networks and through Huawei’s NFV environment.
Empirix vMSP is the latest evolution of the Empirix probe system. It provides all of the same capabilities of the legacy MSP hardware appliance, but runs as software on virtual machines in both Private and Public Clouds. This is important because Digital Transformation initiatives are driving Service Providers to actively move from static physical appliances to highly virtualized and dynamic environments. NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) will be a key enabler for this transition and Empirix’s solutions are well positioned to support NFV.

In the highly-competitive mobile and fixed-line telecommunications space, providing a differentiated customer experience is critical to reducing costs and churn, and to increasing top-line revenues. Customer experience is not a unified concept; it is a combination of customer behaviors, expectations, and lifestyles. However, many organizations still lack the requisite visibility to collect all the information needed to ensure delivery of a top-notch customer experience.
Projections made in early 2016 predicted soft spending in the telecommunications service provider space. Empirix’s innovative solutions and ability to show clear value with an immediate, strong return on investment helped the company overcome these headwinds and achieve its best fourth quarter bookings in its history.
