Vasona Networks Debuts SmartVISION to Help Mobile Operators Gain Actionable Insights From All Subscriber App Use on Their Networks

Real-Time Intelligence Links Customer Experience to Cell-by-Cell Network Performance, Improving Operator Agility

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - VASONA NETWORKS, INC.®, a provider of platforms for mobile network capacity, resource management and intelligence, today announces the SmartVISION™ analysis suite. Mobile operators deploy SmartVISION for visibility about application activities within each cell of a network, including every session's impact on capacity utilization and congestion conditions. The new offering complements Vasona Networks' SmartAIR™1000 edge application controller, creating a tightly-integrated solution for improved mobile network performance.

"Vasona Networks developed SmartVISION based on global operator demand for a solution that improves insights into how traffic patterns in each cell correlate with customer experience and congestion issues," says John Reister, vice president of marketing and product, Vasona Networks. "SmartVISION addresses this need with unique capabilities to learn from all data and control traffic, helping operators connect the dots between certain cell conditions and resulting issues."

Mobile operators have vital imperatives to overcome performance issues for best customer experiences, maximize returns on network investments through efficient resource use, and identify where to focus attention in the network for long-term network success. Traffic overload problems in cells can come and go too fast for operators to react before customers start complaining. This is prone to happen when visibility is limited to control messages and raw throughput, with no insight into application use in cells. SmartVISION responds with robust tools for evaluating real-time behavior and historical trends for each cell in a network, with full contextual assessment of each session. As a result, operators can improve performance, and be more agile in responding to changing market conditions and customer needs.

SmartVISION provides both real-time monitoring of live operating conditions and analytical reporting about performance trends over time, including alerts triggered by certain conditions. This is a thorough solution to overcome issues impacting performance and experiences while they happen, and to guide investment and architectural considerations based on trends in use of cells and their resources. SmartVISION also facilitates centralized management of Vasona SmartAIR edge application controller deployments, which improve customer experiences with real-time capacity allocation based on considerations like cell congestion and session latency.

"The mobile industry stands to benefit from more big data driven assessment of network performance that operators can use to improve service quality, guide planning and respond more quickly to changing market needs," said Daryl Schoolar, principal analyst, network infrastructure, Ovum. "This is especially true of data collected from individual cells across a network, which can paint a better picture of exactly where operators need to focus resources and attention."

Vasona Networks designed SmartVISION as a carrier-grade solution that can scale to meet the needs of any size operator or network configuration. It is deployed in the NOC (network operations center) to provide a consolidated view of how each RAN (radio access network) cell sector performs. Data is collected from SmartAIR, processed and analyzed by SmartVISION for reporting, and can also be provided to third-party systems.

Vasona Networks will exhibit and demonstrate SmartVISION and SmartAIR capabilities in Hall 2 Stand 2G50 at Mobile World Congress, taking place February 24-27 in Barcelona. For more information, visit www.vasonanetworks.com.
