Active Network Intelligence

The internet is changing on a daily basis. Network operators are struggling to keep up with changes on three critical fronts:

 

Maintaining accurate visibility of what actual traffic is on their network

Encryption renders most existing data collection methods ineffective. As the internet continues to go dark, a new approach is needed to maintain a high-level of network intelligence, but also to ensure accurate charging and sustained profitability for highly valuable services, especially zero-rating.

 

Understanding contextual performance between subscribers, their devices, and the services they consume

Running a profitable network requires a deep understanding of how critical services, such as video, gaming, and social sharing, are performing. However, most operators lack the context and the associated key performance indicators needed to truly determine quality of experience (QoE).

 

Scaling to meet performance and volumetric requirements

As video shifts to HD and 4K streaming, and cloud gaming begins to gain traction, bandwidth usage will explode from existing users with little to no additional ARPU. Meeting this challenge on the data plane requires a hyperscale software solution optimized to run on COTS hardware, whether bare metal, virtual, or cloud.
