Net Optics Presents Four Ways for Teleco Companies to Future Proof 4G/LTE Networks
How Net Optics Solutions Help Major Telecos Make the 4G/LTE Switch Without the HeadacheSANTA CLARA, Calif. – March 21, 2011 – Net Optics, Inc., the leader of real-time network visibility solutions, presents four ways for telecommunication (teleco) companies to future proof their 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks.
As the industry switches to 4G network platforms, telecos face increased pressures associated with the transition. Teleco providers must deliver more services at a lower cost, and maintain availability – anywhere and anytime – to attract customers to 4G infrastructures. However, escalating traffic stemming from faster networking capabilities is driving up network costs and affecting the scalability of existing infrastructures. On top of that, most smartphones lack the security software needed for telecos to quickly identify, isolate and resolve potential malware and virus attacks.
Based on Net Optics' experience and track record helping customers with 2/3/4G deployments Net Optics offers four tips for a seamless 4G/LTE transition which will alleviate some of these pain points:
- Monitor for heaviest data users using the highest share of network and throttle them back, or even block some traffic flows
- Employ network-wide visibility to enable quick issue resolution and cut downtime
- Optimize legacy monitoring tools rather than investing costly new tools wherever possible
- Use traffic management strategies such as Dynamic Load Balancing, compression of video downloads, and avoid wasteful use of network resources
Net Optics' solutions are currently employed by some of the world's leading teleco providers. By delivering reliable, passive access to 3G and 4G wireless traffic for quality-of-service (QoS) monitoring and billing, NetOptics taps enable visibility without disrupting the network. Products like the Director xStream, Director Pro and the Phantom Tap deliver real-time surveillance and visibility, while providing superior management resources which lower complexity and simplify trouble shooting for greater overall efficiency.
