Velocent Systems and Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) announced a partnership that will bring together the companies’ technologies to help customers accurately monitor mobile networks of any size. The combined technologies from Velocent Systems, the pioneer of Customer Experience Assurance (CEA) for Mobile Data and Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and Ixia, a leading provider of network assessment and optimization solutions for enterprises and service providers, capture and analyze network traffic in a scalable solution.

“Through this strategic partnership with Ixia, our customers will have access to utmost scalability and accuracy, features that are becoming ever more critical in today’s fast-growing market,” said Jagadeesh Dantuluri, Vice President of Marketing and PLM, Velocent Systems. “The Ixia Net Tool Optimizer (NTO) and GTP Session Controller (GSC) will provide complete network access for OneVu, offering scalability up to 320 Gigabits per second (Gbps).”

The Ixia NTO will passively direct out-of-band network traffic from multiple access points (SPAN ports or TAPs) in the network to Velocent CEA LexaVu monitoring systems for analysis. Traffic will be aggregated from all needed access points in the network to provide comprehensive visibility. In addition, the Ixia GSC correlates all GTP sessions enabling monitoring solutions to scale more efficiently by offloading the aggregation and correlation of subscriber data from monitoring systems.

The joint solution also offers the following features:

  • Full network visibility – Provides operators with unique visibility into data traffic across an increasingly complex environment in which voice evolves onto data and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications continue to proliferate.
  • Simplified deployment – Provides a simplified methodology for addressing the complexity of end-to-end network monitoring, as well as management of visibility systems through a central architecture and advanced traffic aggregation and filtering capabilities.
  • Easy, affordable scalability – Delivers a cost effective solution to scale network visibility as data, voice and video bandwidths continue to rise.

“Ixia’s network visibility solutions complement Velocent’s OneVu CEA by extending access to all needed mobile network traffic. The joint solution provides complete visibility into network traffic in a highly scalable, easy-to-deploy system,” said Roark Pollock, Vice President of Network Visibility Solutions Marketing, Ixia.

“As the capacities of individual Mobile Core Gateway nodes are increasing into hundreds of Gbps, network operators can depend on Velocent’s CEA solution to help with customer experience management (CEM), Big Data and VoLTE, scaling from hundreds of Gbps on the low-end up to Terabits per second (Tbps),” said Dantuluri.

The joint Ixia-Velocent solution is immediately available to mobile operators.
