Acme Packet Announces Real-Time Monitoring Solution for Next-Generation Service Provider Networks

BEDFORD, MA, Feb 25, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Acme Packet(R) (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session delivery networks, today announced the release of Palladion 3.0 for quickly and securely migrating service providers to IP networks, reducing operational costs, increasing customer satisfaction, preventing voice fraud, and minimizing churn. The trusted, new solutions provide real-time monitoring, troubleshooting, and analysis of next-generation service provider IP networks -- including IMS, LTE, and consumer and business voice over IP (VoIP).

Palladion, a non-intrusive monitoring solution, consists of three new management options: Communications Operations Monitor to track network signaling and media in real-time and enable detailed troubleshooting capabilities; Fraud Detection and Prevention to discover and prevent voice fraud; and Control Plane Monitor to track and troubleshoot Diameter signaling traffic in IMS and LTE networks.

News Highlights: -- Communications Operations Monitor - The solution provides real-time end-to-end correlation and quality metrics of all calls by passively capturing all signaling messages and analyzing all media from the network -- thereby enabling simple, drill-down troubleshooting for the root-cause analysis of many service related problems.

-- Fraud Detection and Prevention - Within minutes of implementing Palladion 3.0, service providers can proactively identify and prevent fraud by comparing real-time analysis of user behavior to an automatically established baseline.

-- Control Plane Monitor - The solution will offer advanced, real-time usage and monitoring features, as well as drill-down and sequence diagrams for troubleshooting Diameter signaling. Designed for service providers' signaling and roaming network infrastructures, the solution will provide end-to-end correlation of Diameter transactions.

-- Embedded probe - The Palladion 3.0 solution leverages vendor-neutral network probes to monitor any type of VoIP network through a web-based Graphical User Interface. As well as being available on third-party hardware, for the first time in the industry, probes are also available as a software component integrated into a session border controller (SBC), which reduces network complexity and total cost of ownership.

Solution Benefits and Features: -- Real-time, end-to-end call correlation and analytics -- Segmentation of the network path for fast and accurate problem localization -- Instant troubleshooting down to the individual subscribers -- Historical and current session data to assist analysts in preventing fraud -- Media quality analysis, including R Factor and MOS value -- Unparalleled insight and analysis of signaling messages -- On-demand scoring and fraud alerts -- Vendor-agnostic across the VoIP protocol stacks -- Probe availability on Acme Packet's Net-Net Session Director and third-party hardware Quotes: -- "Acme Packet has long been the leader in the SBC market, and Palladion 3.0 helps differentiate its solution offering," said Diane Myers, principal analyst, Infonetics Research. "By enhancing their portfolio with Palladion 3.0, Acme Packet not only provides security, reliability, and interoperability, but also real-time analysis, monitoring, and troubleshooting for next-generation networks." -- "Palladion 3.0 will revolutionize how service providers understand their next-generation networks," said Pat MeLampy, Acme Packet's chief technology officer. "Acme Packet's instant fraud detection, real-time troubleshooting of call quality issues, deep drill-down into media, SIP signaling, and Diameter, as well as innovative probe design will deliver a full view of any type of IP network to service providers."
