Why active monitoring is essential for the continuous assurance of differentiated services
Service assurance has long been handled by passive probes, but today’s cloud-native networks now require active monitoring to complement traditional approaches
Enable thousands of live measurements, in live networks
Surging data volumes, dynamic scalability and, with 5G, growing end-to-end encryption, make it difficult to monitor traffic with traditional, passive probes. 5G services also demand a wide range of different QoS settings, particularly for mission-critical applications. It’s essential that MNOs can continuously validate and determine the performance delivered.
Secure real-time feedback and control
Active monitoring is based on the deployment of software agents – mimicking UEs – into live networks. They participate in real services and interact with delivery components, enabling the collection of real-time data to assess performance and the experience delivered to service users. Agents can be controlled to test different service features.
With differentiated services, MNOs need to know how each behaves in the live network across slices and domains.
B2B partners depend on the SLAs you offer; active monitoring enables objective verification of delivery.
Complex services span multiple entities in control and user planes. Live, end-to-end validation is essential.
With new levels of service agility, you need live active monitoring to move in lockstep with dynamic systems.
Functional testing, performance testing and active monitoring for mobile networks
Live validation of performance, from the network
Emblasoft’s active monitoring solution is based on a complete, distributed architecture, extending from monitoring agents (UEs) to the execution platform and control centre. Configurable software-based agents generate user traffic and capture metrics regarding the QoS delivered, for multiple applications and services, across all technology domains.
The execution platform can be deployed in virtual architectures and service orchestration can be performed from our solution, or via an MNOs existing orchestration platform, ensuring effective automation. The control centre manages thousands of agents to ensure that active monitoring is provided for all relevant services, at scale.
Use pre-built or create your own test scenarios, for any service and feature.
Assure RCS, SMS, RB, video and IoT services, with live KPI reporting.
Validate service performance across slices and domains, for control and user planes.
Cloud-native and fully automated, with API integration to key systems and nodes.
