Service providers are fundamentally transforming how they manage and monitor their networks to keep up with escalating amounts of traffic, new handsets, new real-time services and complex subscriber behaviors. The approach to add more analytic and performance management tools has been challenging due to variable rate interfaces and variable throughput processing capabilities - making it previously impossible to integrate, scale or aggregate disparate traffic to achieve a holistic view of a subscriber's daily services and device use.
Network performance lags and new technologies are slow to rollout without being de-risked through the insight provided by a centralized tool rail. Many new services are sensitive to delay, jitter and latency forcing customer-service costs to rise and subscriber satisfaction to decrease. The previous inability to dynamically scale traffic to fit the busy hour requirement has caused both tool over- and under-subscription, further draining tool resources and decreasing overall operational efficiency.
Overlapping Flow Samples Deliver Service Providers Richer Intelligence & Insights
FlowVUE also increases tool performance by scaling the traffic to fit the attached tool processing throughput capacity as the network traffic volumes shift during high and low peak times. Service providers gain new operational efficiencies by avoiding the unnecessary traffic and tool dimensioning of over- and under-subscription across a wide set of tools. The optimized throughput processing allows operators to dimension their tool rail for a specific percentage of the typical busy hour and apply cost savings elsewhere on their network.
"For the first time, service providers can experience higher levels of subscriber-aware visibility and intelligence to make real-time decisions and improved customer experiences," said Andy Huckridge, director of service provider solutions at
Other key benefits of new traffic scaling with multiple overlapping flow samples include:
- For the first time, security tools can now be driven as part of a centralized tool rail, sharing and seeing traffic with Application Performance Management (APM), Customer Experience Management (CEM) or Network Performance Management (NPM) tools to provide better security coverage
- Raised customer experience standards by allowing service providers to focus less on monitoring traffic and more on enhancing performance
- Optimized infrastructure investments from maximizing analytic tool throughput and eliminating tool oversubscription
"Service Providers looking to operationalize Viavi's full portfolio of solutions want to have the flexibility to provide the right traffic at the right speeds at the right time to the right tools," said Sameh Yamany, CTO of
