Mobile operators are always looking to improve the performance of their network in order to provide better services for their customers. This requires access to every piece of hardware and software that is responsible for delivering digital telecommunications in real-time. Nokia has launched such a solution with its Real-Time Mobile Network Analytics, which, according to the company, will give operators the access they need to improve services, mitigate security threats and identify problems before they cause system wide failures.
According to Nokia (News - Alert), the Real-Time Mobile Network Analytics platform is going to provide a comprehensive view of mobile networks beginning with the network elements, cells, devices, operating systems, applications, subscribers and calls.
The analytics solution is able to link all these components together, making every mobile device part of the network testbed by monitoring the performance of applications and devices to network issues in real-time. With this type of granular view, operators can accurately pinpoint any issue as soon as it takes place because they are receiving the data directly from the source. The company said operators will no longer have to consult multiple tools and correlate the information manually in order to verify the data.
The analytics solution integrates the Nokia Wireless Network Guardian, Traffic, and Network Performance Optimizer, which together are able to source data directly from radio access and core networks.
Bhaskar Gorti, president of Nokia's Applications and Analytics business group, said, "Today, we introduce a completely new approach that meets the needs of modern-day operators by providing on-the-fly correlation of network-wide data and its analysis per application, per cell, per subscriber, per device and even per call. In the future we will extend this capability to support fixed networks and Wi-Fi."
Nokia said with the Real-Time Mobile Network Analytics, operators will be able to: achieve Internet of Things (IoT) device and service insight; provide real time input for automated congestion/traffic management; assure high quality, interruption-free VoLTE; identify problems with Over The Top applications; provide real-time marketing insight; and precise scaling of virtualized functions.
The Nokia Real-Time Mobile Network Analytics is going to dramatically improve the way engineers optimize and identify problems starting with the network and ending with a call, as well as any other point that is part of the operation. Hopefully this will translate to better services for the customer as we continue to rely more and more on our mobile devices.
