Virtual Probe & Analytics for Mobile Network Providers

by Cindy Turner

Mobile network operators understand the value of network intelligence to drive business decisions and improve the customer experience. Affirmed Networks delivers the industry’s only virtual probe that embeds probe/packet brokering functions into its Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) rather than delivering as a separate network appliance. Operators can dramatically reduce hardware costs, network complexity and the performance issues typically associated with appliance-based probe solutions while providing real-time network intelligence and probe geographically distributed VNF’s in a scalable, cost-effective manner, reducing current probing costs by as much as 50 percent.
