Day 1-t3-1750 guillaume-le-mener-20120523

  1. 1. Achieving Complete LTE ReadinessAccelerating The Connected World
  2. 2. World’s First Large-Scale LTE Network "As we maintain and deploy Americas most advanced 4G LTE network, we knew we needed a monitoring solution that helps assure that our services perform seamlessly for our customers. Tektronix Communications customer driven innovation approach resulted in a solution uniquely capable of meeting our business and operational requirements.” Nicola Palmer Vice President of Networks
  3. 3. “Achieving Complete LTE Readiness” ?• It’s not enough to build and deploy a “functional” network – OSS and BSS must also be set up from day one to minimize technical and financial risks – Operators must recognize a return on their huge investments — FAST• It’s too expensive and inefficient to deploy systems for LTE as independent silos – LTE networks are going to operate in parallel with 3G networks for quite some time Operational Commercial Readiness Readiness Functional network with all necessary OSS for Integration with mission-critical BSS such as performance management, troubleshooting, etc. billing, fraud, customer experience, etc. from lab testing through FOA to live network
  4. 4. Operational Readiness• Conformance and operation within the LTE network• Interoperation with other networks• Troubleshooting tools and processes for Tier 2-3• Proactive performance monitoring• Manage traffic growth and continuous network expansion
  5. 5. Commercial Readiness• Early, efficient integration with BSS and processes• Empowering customer care• Manage new revenue and service strategies• Track subscriber behavior and service usage
  6. 6. Carriers’ Concerns – EPC/LTE  Carriers’ rated integration and handovers their #1 concern  Policy control rated #2 with carriers’ showing concern on the growth of data services  Interoperability between vendors rated #3 as carriers’ show concern over NEM implementations
  7. 7. Addressing LTE’s Unique ChallengesCross-NetworkVisibility Unless a system can capture all the hops you will miss criticalLTE is not an island. As many othernetworks play an important role, ! pieces of information needed to manage interworking networks.interoperability carries great significance.Setup alone for an LTE session requiresat least 10 hops and hand-downs to 3Gonly extend the required visibility. The Solution1. Provides complete visibility to hand downs from LTE.2. Enables reporting, monitoring and troubleshooting across technical borders from one system. Multi-network, Multi-hop Support3. Supports an unlimited number of hops.
  8. 8. Addressing LTE’s Unique ChallengesFull Subscriber-basedCorrelation Failure to capture, decrypt and correlate the IMSI to the GUTIGUTIs provide the key to associatingactivity with a particular subscriber IMSI. ! when it occurs compromises data integrity and visibility toIn LTE environments, this temporary ID the subscriber.changes less often than in 3G due toinherent security measures and mayremain unchanged for more than 24hours. The Solution1. Patent-pending mapping algorithm efficiently decrypts and correlates subscriber identities including GUTI, IMSI, MSISDN.2. Real-time capture is superior to sampling—elimination of post- processing ensures critical Complete and Quick Retrieval of messages are captured. all Associated Messages
  9. 9.
