Entrusted to monitor and troubleshoot some of the world’s largest networks, Empirix’s service assurance platform, Diagnostix, formerly known as E-XMS, is capable of monitoring both hybrid and pure cloud-native 5G networks. This puts Empirix in a unique position to support communication service providers who have identified a migration path for their networks to 5G.
Empirix announced today that a 3-year contract with a Tier 1 North American telecom operator was recently signed for $19M USD to improve the quality of performance of the operator’s mobile voice, VoWiFi and VoLTE networks, to score and increase customer experience satisfaction, and reduce OpEx related to mean-time-to-repair (MTTR).
This year, 5G took center stage and, for the first time that I can remember, car manufacturers showed up at MWC to demonstrate their connected and autonomous cars that 5G should “easily” enable.
To date, it appears most of the MSPs that have deployed VoLTE have relied on active testing to effectively “spot check” the end-to-end service improvements and overall performance. Very little appears to have been done to look at overall QoE across the entire customer base.
Service providers are demanding more from their customer experience and service assurance solutions because they have a keen awareness of the richness and value of the information that flows across their networks. Reliably and accurately extracted, this information can be used to help manage not just the network, but also the services offered and the devices deployed. Insights can be also be gained around the performance of providers’ vendors and—most significantly—the experiences and value of their customers.
By now, most of us involved within the Telecoms space will have heard about Voice over LTE. Like any new technology, it comes with a lot of hope and promise to improve customer experiences and reduce operating expenses, but what exactly is it and what challenges will it present for the service provider.
2015 is bringing significant changes to the radio access network (RAN) environment as the insatiable demand for mobile data continues to accelerate. These pressures are forcing operators to rethink their business models and how they operate. CSPs are aware of the need to improve the Quality of Experience for subscribers while also continuing to invest […]
The combination of the Gigamon Visibility Fabric with the IntelliSight platform enables Empirix service providers to improve customer experience with data-intense applications such as video, voice and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
LTE is spreading across the globe. Yet Mobile Service Providers still have to figure out how to best leverage the speed and capacity that LTE brings to create value for their customers – not to mention how best to generate more revenue.
LTE Direct is a device-to-device platform that enables true “continuous” proximity based discovery. LTE Direct is a synchronous system operating in licensed spectrum under the control of the Mobile Service Provider, where devices monitor for service layer announcements (also known as expressions). The synchronous nature of the system allows devices to stay on for an extremely short duration to announce and monitor these announcements. This results in minimal battery drains enabling truly autonomous location discovery.
