Empirix Introduces Comprehensive LTE Network Analysis

Empirix today announced the availability of the Empirix xCentrix LTE Analysis Package. Through intelligent correlation and comprehensive analysis of network data, Empirix xCentrix provides deep insight into LTE utilization, integration and performance issues as well as the myriad of factors impacting customer experience and Quality of Service. It enables operators to provide better service under evolving conditions, uncover new revenue opportunities, develop innovative pricing models and tightly control costs.

“Operators are evaluating and implementing a variety of strategies to manage the tremendous demand for bandwidth the smart-device revolution has created. Large-scale LTE deployment is an important step; however, there are significant challenges with regards to integrating with existing systems, continuously delivering a quality experience and minimizing overall cost per bit delivered,” said Akshay Sharma, research director, Gartner, Carrier Network Infrastructure. “By leveraging network analytics to provide a thorough understanding of how evolving conditions impact customer experience and the end-to-end performance of these complex environments, operators can more effectively control the success and profitability of their LTE investments.”

Empirix xCentrix delivers actionable intelligence operators can use to improve operations, optimize resources and boost profitability across the organization. With new visibility into how specific handsets, customer behaviors, applications, services and physical location impact LTE network resources, operators can preempt service-impacting issues, quickly troubleshoot issues and effectively plan infrastructure investments. It allows operators to easily track roaming activities across complex mobile environments and validate SLA performance to maximize revenues. Armed with an in-depth analysis of Quality of Service metrics, the Empirix xCentrix LTE Analysis Package helps companies tailor usage plans and reduces traffic expenses through tighter management of partner contracts. Most importantly, mobile operators can now vigilantly guard customer experience to reduce churn.

“Mobile operators deploying new LTE networks are facing unprecedented complexity, which can lead to unnecessary costs and untapped revenue opportunities,” said Tim Moynihan, vice president of marketing, Empirix. “Through our in-depth understanding of mobile technology and comprehensive analysis techniques, Empirix transforms data into intelligence, enabling operators to improve customer experience, optimize performance across the entire network and discover new ways to profit from their LTE deployments.”

Empirix xCentrix provides a comprehensive vision of mobile and LTE environments with granular insight into performance issues by tower, application and geography together with an analysis of customer behaviors, including app and device usage. With the Empirix xCentrix LTE Analysis Package, operators can quickly manipulate large volumes of data and present the information in a way that is meaningful across departments and job functions. Empirix xCentrix’s on-demand reporting allows users to interact with the data on the fly, fully explore all data dimensions and measures, and design reports or dashboards based on their unique requirements. It also offers a web-based interface for drilling into micro events or layering multiple data points and key performance indicators (KPIs) to instantly reveal hidden trends. Empirix xCentrix provides the following capabilities:

  • Application Analysis – offers insight into performance, quality, resource and usage information by customer, location or device.
  • Mobility Management Analysis – provides deep visibility into network connection management issues, including understanding the various EMM failure causes.
  • Session Analysis – allows users to understand key factors affecting user experience, including devices, operating systems, network locations and roaming statuses.
  • Bearer Performance Analysis – uncovers key issues related to bearer performance, including various EPS bearer causes.
  • Roaming Analysis – delivers visibility into traffic and performance for both inbound and outbound roamers by country, network and operator.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
