Empirix Delivers Service Assurance for Wireless Vehicle Solutions

Empirix today announced enhancements to its Empirix E-XMS service assurance platform for monitoring telematics solutions, including those that enable emergency notifications, remote vehicle diagnostics, wireless dashboard services and “MyCar” smartphone apps. By leveraging Empirix E-XMS’s advanced troubleshooting capabilities, operators can quickly pinpoint, diagnose and understand service delivery issues in these highly complex environments. With this offering, service providers gain an important level of assurance for an emerging class of wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions that promise to enhance the in-vehicle experience and improve driving performance.

“The growing momentum in M2M generally, including M2M for automotive, has opened up new opportunities for service providers worldwide,” according to Gartner. “M2M is typically an enabling technology; it is integrated into existing applications that were developed without reference to eventual integration and support of cellular technology.”*

Empirix helps service providers mitigate the complexities inherent in assuring multi-system, data-intensive mobile solutions. Empirix E-XMS is a high-capacity, carrier-grade solution capable of monitoring the vast amount of operator-to-manufacturer-to-vehicle communications that power telematics. For a complete understanding of user experience, Empirix analyzes both network and application performance, including support emergency service requests, vehicle health checks and smartphone-enabled solutions for remote start, lock or unlock. Empirix E-XMS also assures a growing class of in-vehicle and driving-relevant solutions, such as navigation, parts purchasing, media downloads and more.

By providing end-to-end visibility along with the ability to drill deeply into any performance issue, Empirix helps companies quickly diagnose a wide range of problems. It includes broad support for mobile, WiFi, datacom and IP protocols as well as the NGTP 2.0 standard created by the Next Generation Telematics Pattern consortium.

“Many of the leading mobile service providers we work with are leveraging their technical assets and developing new solutions optimized to deliver superior service quality. Wireless vehicle solutions are a great example,” said Steve Kish, director of product management at Empirix. “Unlike supporting an app downloaded to a smartphone, telematics solutions span multiple applications, data sources and network environments. This complexity makes problems difficult to isolate and the performance measure requires an innovative approach. Our customers requested an assurance and analytics solution to rapidly diagnose issues with these communications and we delivered.”

The Empirix E-XMS solution is part of the Empirix Systems Architecture (ESA). ESA unifies the company’s industry-leading testing and monitoring technologies with predictive analytics and business intelligence capabilities and empowers customers to take a modular approach to their deployments. This flexible, integrated solution enables companies to easily add new capabilities, as well as leverage their existing infrastructure investments, to increase the availability of critical systems, delight customers and drive revenue growth.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...
