User Experience Is Too Critical to Leave to Chance

Mobile is no longer simple. End users are utilizing video, audio, and VoIP more than ever. That puts pressure on mobile providers to deliver superior quality of service (QoS) and constant connectivity. But that's not all. Architecture changes are driving operators to perform critical revenue-generating voice services over the same data network with voice over Long-Term Evolution (LTE / VoLTE).

As users demand better performance and minimal latency, mobile operators need to maintain QoS and quality of experience (QoE) — and that requires specialized, packet-level monitoring. CloudLens, our platform for public, private, and hybrid cloud monitoring, enables mobile carriers to address these unique challenges. By capturing hard-to-reach information and delivering optimized data to specialized monitoring probes, CloudLens ensures positive user experiences and superior QoS.

Monitor physical, virtual, and hybrid transitional deployments — lowering cost per packet and total cost of ownership.


The Data Explosion

According to Cisco, the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) will help drive global mobile traffic levels to 49 exabytes per month in 2021. Mobile networks are already supporting phones, tablets, watches, and more — and must now also support cars, medical devices, manufacturing equipment, and everything in between.

But beyond devices, the consumption of newer media and services is also driving data growth. Technologies like 4K video, as well as applications like YouTube, Skype, WhatsApp, and WeChat, are making video streaming the dominant consumer of mobile data — causing overall data use to increase exponentially.

A Higher Bar

As mobile devices evolve, users are expecting more than ever from mobile carriers. Not only do they want to stream video and make calls over data connections, they also expect seamless connectivity no matter where they are. In fact, some countries in Southeast Asia exceed 100% mobile connection penetration — meaning subscribers are utilizing multiple operators to meet their demands. When coupled with current usage trends, such as nearly 11 hours of screen time a day for U.S. users (per a 2016 survey), subscribers have no patience for disruption of service or quality gaps from mobile carriers.

To meet subscribers' demands, mobile carriers need 24x7 visibility and monitoring, so they can scale with their growing needs.
