AGILENT Technologies has released a service assurance solution that monitors and manages universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) networks and voice, video and data services.
It offers end-to-end insight into network operation and service performance and enables wireless carriers to aggregate data from key UMTS interfaces, perform real time analysis and understand unusual events and trends.
Agilent has integrated its Distributed Network Analyzer, Data Mining Toolkit and Signaling Analyzer solutions. The resulting service assurance solution is Agilent UMTS Performance Analyzer. It allows wireless service providers to use the data collected from UMTS interfaces to better manage the performance of the network and services. The system's data collection and aggregation platform can also be used in other areas such as radio frequency (RF) quality of service management.
Flexible reporting allows a wide range of analysis on the collected subscriber data, enabling users to identify and troubleshoot issues across the UMTS network and understand the performance of voice and data services. UMTS Performance Analyzer provides insight into the quality and performance of the radio access network. It monitors and troubleshoots radio network controller handovers and reports on the performance of the network and UMTS and GPRS services.
