CloudLens + MobileStack: Subscriber-Aware Visibility for the Virtualized Mobile Core
Mobile network operators face a growing challenge—they have more users, with more devices, using more data for applications like Wi-Fi calling, voice over long-term evolution (VoLTE), and video streaming—and these users have incredibly high expectations for reliability and experience.
Operators must scale their ability to assure the quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) they provide subscribers in traditional, virtual, and hybrid environments. They must create a bulletproof monitoring infrastructure that keeps existing subscribers happy and minimizes the churn rate to ensure a successful business.
Ixia’s CloudLens with MobileStack capabilities addresses the mobile network operator’s needs by providing a way for it to scale the monitoring infrastructure cost-effectively—so it can ensure its subscribers remain loyal. MobileStack capabilities allow for specialized tracking of a subscriber’s sessions to be able to monitor both quality and experience. CloudLens with MobileStack is the first offering that addresses these needs for a virtualized mobile core network and is based on Ixia’s first-to-market and market-leading physical solution for the traditional core network—the GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) Session Controller (GSC).
