Integrating 5G Active Monitoring into visualisation platforms

Briefing paper:

Integrating 5G Active Monitoring into visualisation platforms

Emblasoft Evolver and Active Monitoring provides deep integration with monitoring tools, such as Prometheus, and visualisation tools, such as Grafana.

Evolver empowers operators to generate rich insights into network service levels and provides the ability to trigger automated actions based on near-real-time data.

This enables operators to explore 5G and network data in new ways – and to combine Active Monitoring and Performance Validation data with other sources, to discover new insights and optimisation opportunities.

In this briefing paper we explore how Emblasoft can help you unify data, obtain rich visualisations, and share insights across your organisation.

i-CORA - a Large-Scale Experimentation Platform for End-to-End 5G Services

Briefing paper:

i-CORA - a Large-Scale Experimentation Platform
for End-to-End 5G Services

The development of 5G and Beyond 5G (B5G) technologies relies on the availability of experimentation facilities that can evaluate and validate the performance of these technologies. It is of great interest and challenge to design, deploy and operate large-scale experimentation platforms to meet the high requirements of various vertical use cases for the 5G services.

This paper describes an i-CORA platform that we built with Telenor Research and Innovation, Telenor, Norway; and EMEA at RedHat, Germany; to support several EU-funded projects (5GMediaHUB, IMAGINE-B5G, FIDAL and COMMECT) and vertical use cases.

Simulated End-to-End Functional Testing for the 5G Core

Briefing paper:

Simulated End-to-End Functional Testing for the 5G Core

How to validate 5G core functionality in pre- and production environments

5G, the IoT, and cloud computing will enable a massive increase in the number of connected devices and users, and in data traffic volumes – with each service likely requiring a distinct set of performance and QoS parameters and KPIs.

It will also drive a more heterogenous ecosystem of network equipment, all of which needs to operate seamlessly with each other and within the network, in near-realtime.

Given the complexities of the 5G core, how can service providers and MNOs ensure their networks will operate as expected, end-to-end?

Testing and validating VoLTE roaming after 3G sunset

Briefing paper:

Testing and validating VoLTE roaming after “3G sunset”

As operators around the world switch off their legacy 2G and 3G networks and introduce VoLTE roaming, there is a growing need to test and validate services to meet QoE levels.

Emblasoft Evolver provides the answer

Many operators are still transitioning to VoLTE roaming and lack the tools to test and validate their networks pre-launch as well as dynamically post-launch.

Emblasoft Evolver has a proven track record as a cost-effective, multi-protocol testing platform for VoLTE roaming. Read our briefing paper to learn how Emblasoft can help you to close the VoLTE roaming gap.

Inside, you'll learn about:

  • The VoLTE roaming deficit
  • Solving the VoLTE roaming challenge
  • How Emblasoft Evolver demonstrates comprehensive testing and active monitoring throughout the VoLTE service lifecycle.

Ensuring the success of A2P messaging services

Briefing paper:

Ensuring the success of A2P messaging services

A2P messaging is a key business communication channel – the ecosystem depends on smooth service delivery, all the time

Evolver – a complete platform for A2P SMS message assurance and validation

A2P messaging via SMS is a key tool used by businesses to communicate with their customers. It involves a lengthy and sometimes complex value chain, with multiple stakeholders involved in the delivery process. Validating A2P messaging service performance is essential for their success – and for MNOs to meet SLAs with their business customers.

Read our briefing paper to learn how Evolver assures every step.

Emblasoft's Evolver enables MNOs to:

  • Test, assure and continually validate A2P SMS services
  • Measure service quality, delivery time, content integrity, deliverability and more
  • Isolate a uniquely broad range of nodes and test end-to-end
  • Collect metrics and reports via APIs
  • Validate and enhance protection mechanisms to avoid spam
  • Automate tests in pre-production and live networks
  • Use active monitoring to verify message delivery performance

Ensuring IMS performance in a virtualised environment

Briefing paper:

Ensuring IMS performance in a virtualised environment

Comprehensive multi-protocol monitoring, performance test and validation for assurance of virtualised IMS systems.

Transition to Virtual IMS with Evolver

Operators migrating to a new or virtualised IMS system or offering virtualised 5G-based VoIP or VoWiFi must deploy active monitors within the IMS to ensure service delivery and experience, and to meet their own SLAs. It's essential that operators have the ability to test and validate multiple traffic scenarios in the production environment.

Learn how Evolver simplifies performance analysis by simulating traffic from the Radio Access Networks or nodes within the Mobile Core/IMS. With Emblasoft, CSPs and network equipment manufacturers can:

  • Simplify and automate performance analysis of new services, as part of active monitoring and continuous assurance processes.
  • Confirm compatibility between equipment from different vendors in production environments.
  • Ensure consistent quality across different traffic loads and scenarios.
