CENX, Ixia, Mitel, and VMware Displays Advance Service Assurance Within LSO Frameworks
FREMONT, CA: A provider of engineered service management and assurance solutions for physical and virtualized networks, CENX announced that it has engaged in concert with Ixia, Mitel, and VMware to exhibit radical real-time assurance of mobile data services for virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC). With the advent of CENX’S Exanova Service Intelligence, mobile service providers can swiftly recognize high quality of experience (QoE) for VoLTE, VoWiFi, and data enterprise and consumer subscribers, over massive hybrid networks including vEPC.“Working with CENX, Ixia, and VMware gives us a sophisticated set of management and analytics capabilities to operate our 4G LTE network solutions with an intelligence that matches the subscriber services that we enable,” says Terry McCabe, CTO of Mitel’s Mobile Division. The CENX, Ixia, Mitel, and VMware demonstration exhibits optimized real-time service assurance, within the framework of Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO).
Designed on vendor and network agnostic architecture, Exanova disrupts a variety of existing OSS and IT data sources. It provides a real-time, contextual search, along with intuitive and comprehensive macro-geographic and detailed path views across all segments of multi-vendor network path. It nails the root fold reasons and impacts on subscriber QoE.According to Jay McMullan, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, CENX, Exanova Service Intelligence’s real-time visualization and comprehensive KPI analytics will empower operators with robust means to navigate their network, isolate faults, and trigger automated workflows.
Ixia’s IxLoadTM Wireless provides full-featured application testing of wireless networks and components. It emulates real-world subscriber traffic—voice, video, data—simultaneously emulating wads of mobile subscriber activities. It provides full fledged test coverage from LTE and WiFi Offload base stations to mobile core at scale, for fast-tracking latest network services with verified quality
Mitel’s vEPC virtual is a 3GPP compliant solution for enabling protected connection between devices and the mobile operator’s EPS over untrusted non-3GPP access network. It provides a backhaul security through IPSec tunnels, optimized packet processing, and high throughput per user QoS support. It has a modular architecture to support distributed regional deployments with local entry points. Mitel’s vEPC virtual functions combine SBC and ePDG functionality into single platform.
