Tektronix (News - Alert) Communications, a provider of test and network intelligence solutions designed for communications providers has just unveiled an integrated solution for its GeoProbe system.
GeoProbe from Tektronix provides communications providers with the information needed to solve network performance issues through the use of near real-time alerts and ongoing historical analysis for more focused and effective troubleshooting.
The new OptiMon offering for GeoProbe allows customers to leverage their investment with a fully scalable, 24/7 real-time network-wide monitoring platform based on GeoProbe, with a state-of-the-art 3G RAN performance optimization solution provided by OptiMon. It allows communications provider to offer their customers improved subscriber accessibility, retainability and performance of their mobile networks.
In addition, the solution addresses multiple needs of communications providers including improving their daily network management processes, troubleshooting, and optimization workflows as network traffic and complexity continues to grow.
Thanks to the success of mobile broadband and the huge demand for high speed data services, today’s communications providers find it increasingly difficult to optimize 3G network performance and gain deep understanding of the RAN performance through the process and tools they have inherited from legacy technology operations.
The OptiMon for GeoProbe solution helps communications provider companies address this concern by offering an integrated suite of products that gather critical, real-time data from the 3G network. The captured data is analyzed to provide Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and long-term trending analysis.
Furthermore, users can also perform level 2 & 3 advanced RAN troubleshooting analysis to determine and isolate issues such as multi-RAB problems caused by smartphones, and other devices.
Richard Kenedi (News - Alert), vice president, Test and Optimization, Tektronix Communications said in a statement, “This combined offering helps our customers improve business agility by optimizing network infrastructure to deliver higher quality services faster and more efficiently, and improve their market competitiveness via a 3G RAN optimization solution combined with a 24/7 end-to-end network monitoring solution."
