SevOne Announces End-To-End 4G LTE and IMS Network Performance Management Solution

Solution Addresses Key Mobile Operator Challenges With Comprehensive Performance Visibility Across LTE, IMS and Backhaul Infrastructures

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - TM Forum Management World -- SevOne, the new leader in network performance management, today announced its end-to-end 4G LTE and IMS network performance management solution that is now available by extending the capabilities in its SevOne Performance Appliance Solution (SevOne PAS™). This new capability supports the real-time visibility and order of magnitude increase in IP network scale that mobile network operators require in delivering the superior quality of experience expected from 4G LTE networks.

"Services deployed over a LTE network will require consistent uniform performance management across the access and backhaul network," stated Patrick Kelly, Research Director at Analysys Mason. "SevOne xStats enables operators to report on the performance of the network and service across multiple domains."

With SevOne's new LTE solution, mobile operators will see not only how their entire network is performing end-to-end, but how individual services on the network are performing, including those provided by backhaul service providers. This provides the visibility and scale they need, from one performance management system, to proactively monitor and troubleshoot any issue before it becomes service impacting.

SevOne has been working with leading mobile and cable operators to implement the collection of bulk performance statistics, via the new SevOne xStats plug-in, from the element management systems (EMS) of their LTE, IMS, and backhaul equipment providers. Starting with routers or eNIDS at the cell-site and following the data path back through the entire network to the core, SevOne can now monitor all of the components in the data path (including eNodeB, PGW, SGW, MME, PCRF, CSCF, HSS, and more) and deliver an end-to-end view of the LTE and IMS infrastructure, independent of equipment type.

The all-in-on SevOne PAS supports more than 15 performance metric collection methodologies, including SNMP, NetFlow, and IP SLA. The new SevOne xStats bulk data integration capability further delivers on the company's vision of removing all scalability and affordability limits to data collection, analysis, and reporting, now for mobile operators, communications services providers, and cable operators for their LTE, IMS and backhaul infrastructures.

Mobile operators will be able to address the following key challenges:

  • Effectively manage and optimize network capacity while reducing LTE, backhaul, and IMS expenditure and customer churn;
  • Proactively monitor network performance to ensure the infrastructure at all points meets current service level agreements and addresses future demands;
  • Optimize 4G LTE and IMS infrastructure to support increased multi-media traffic levels, markets and geographies; and
  • Isolate, determine, and alert on performance issues ahead of service impact to meet and exceed customers' expectations.

"The growth of mobile data is a large and a growing problem for mobile operations, with Gartner estimating that data growth per user can easily reach 30% to 50% per year, in particular due to video," stated Michael Phelan, President and CEO, SevOne. "SevOne is benefiting from this growth by gaining early entrance into the new and rapidly growing 4G LTE technology roll-outs. We are already engaged with key mobile network operators and MSO backhaul providers to deliver the comprehensive performance visibility these providers need to deliver on the heightened service expectations that 4G LTE technologies promise."

SevOne is demonstrating its industry leading network performance management solution this week at TM Forum Management World 2011 in Dublin, at Interop Tokyo June 8-10, and at The Cable Show 2011 in Chicago June 14-16.

TMCnet and SevOne are hosting a LTE focused webinar on June 8th at 11 AM EDT with Ericsson and Analysys Mason, titled: Key Factors for Managing 4G LTE and IMS Performance at Scale. Register now.
