Astellia, leading provider of network and subscriber intelligence for mobile operators, has launched as part of its long-term monitoring strategy, Flex, an intelligent traffic load balancer for flexible user plane monitoring and troubleshooting solution.
Today’s changing networks must support ever-increasing traffic volumes, higher speeds and more mobile apps. This massive data growth is outpacing operator’s ability to cost-effectively monitor it. Operators therefore need to adapt their data capture and processing strategies, all while controlling their monitoring CAPEX.
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.
In order to reduce UP monitoring costs and improve scalability, Flex can target UP traffic based on criteria like IMSI, mobile app, APName, QCI, geographical areas, handset and IP address while still generating QoS information (throughput & volume) for every subscriber.
