Nokia is launching Real-Time Mobile Network Analytics, which the company calls “the industry’s first solution to give operators an end-to-end view of mobile networks from individual subscribers, applications, devices and operating systems, network elements, cells and calls.”
The analytics link the performance of applications and devices to network issues in real-time, effectively making every mobile device part of a network test bed.
This enables operators to pin point potential causes of service degradation much more rapidly than they can today since they no longer need to consult a myriad of tools and correlate the data from them manually, according to Nokia.
It also offers engineering teams a proactive way to understand Over The Top (OTT) application impacts on the network and optimize opportunities, said Nokia.
With the suite, Nokia is integrating three of its existing tools including the Nokia Wireless Network Guardian, Nokia Traffica and Nokia Network Performance Operator. The three address engineering, apps, networks, devices and real-time trouble shooting and analytics.
Nokia added that it will also combine open application programming interfaces so carriers can customize according to big data needs. According to Nokia, the use cases include IoT insight, automated traffic management, and interruption-free VoLTE.
