New Ixia Solution Provides Unprecedented Visibility Into Rapidly Growing 4G LTE Networks; GTP Session Controller is the world's first solution to deliver exceptional visibility and control to manage explosive mobile data growth

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- BARCELONA, SPAIN -- Demonstrating continued market innovation, Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) introduced a breakthrough category of products that deliver a highly scalable network visibility solution to help mobile carriers better understand their rapidly growing 4G LTE networks. The Ixia Anue GTP Session Controller enables mobile carriers to gain better insight and control over individual user sessions in order to increase customers' quality of experience.


Decades after the creation of mobile phones, today's mobile networks are constrained by unmitigated complexity due the encapsulation of each individual user's mobile sessions -- including voice, data and video. Additionally, with mobile data growth and the fact that a session often moves through multiple towers before completion, mobile carriers have not had a way to truly visualise and control individual sessions. Ixia understood this roadblock to success and created the Anue GSC to provide unprecedented network visibility for mobile carriers -- ultimately providing a better quality of experience for customers.

News Highlights: Ixia Anue GSC enables unprecedented visibility and control With the current rates of data growth and the ever-increasing mobility of users, mobile carriers require drastically increased visibility into their networks as well as a way to view and piece together data coming from multiple towers. With the Anue GSC, Ixia unlocks scalability of and visibility into 4G LTE networks by providing: GTP-session awareness -- Offloads GTP session correlation from monitoring tools while keeping GTP sessions together across multiple probes. The Anue GSC understands GTP protocol and can deliver all packets from a single subscriber to a single tool as well as send GTP-session and non-GTP, non-session traffic to different pools of probes.

A scalable load balancing solution -- Offers a flexible load-balancing solution with room for future growth. It distributes millions of subscriber sessions to tools in a 32-port configuration, doubling the number of ports for twice the performance in a 2RU chassis.

Carrier-grade robustness -- Delivers uninterrupted control in demanding telecommunication environments and is NEBS Level 1 certified, including high-availability features such as redundant management ports, power supplies and fan trays.

Commentary: "Mobile operators need actionable information for each session associated with each subscriber, but a major issue for current network monitoring tools is that correlating sessions from 4G LTE networks in real time is very difficult and resource-intensive," said Iain Gillott, founder and president of iGR. "With a solution in place like the Ixia Anue GSC, the session correlation is offloaded from the network monitoring tools, which frees them up to focus on network monitoring tasks and scaling the network as traffic continues to grow. The network managers are therefore able to deliver the information needed to the operator's business management tools, cost-effectively and efficiently." "Today's mobile users expect a stellar quality of experience, and to compete effectively, mobile carriers require better visibility into and control over their networks," said Alex Pepe, senior vice president and general manager for Ixia Network Visibility Solutions. "We understand these challenges and designed a solution to resolve them by giving mobile carriers the information they need to ensure quality of experience and service for their customers."
