Movik’s product announcement caught my eye, its a real time OSS type of network surveillance system targeted towards handover traffic. This solution is an interesting niche. There is going to be a significant amount of traffic ‘in flight’ moving between 3G, 4G LTE, WiFi etc… I can see this will be very useful for small cell deployments too. Check it out, full PR below…
Movik’s unique intelligent Radio Access Network (RAN) solution is based on its REACHTM (Report, Export, Act, Control, HetNet) architecture. Movik’s REACH architecture provides a comprehensive end-to-end intelligent RAN deployment lifecycle that provides flow-based, content aware RAN awareness in real-time across multiple Radio Access Technologies (multi RAT). REACH delivers a progressive solution designed specifically to address operator needs today and as networks scale rapidly for tomorrow’s mobile broadband demand as outlined below:
The company’s innovative solutions enable operators to improve the subscriber experience by intelligently correlating and acting in real-time, on all traffic in the RAN. Movik leverages network and content awareness to quickly and easily scale content distribution, establish policies and procedures based on real-time network conditions, and implement traffic management techniques that make the most efficient use of the existing network infrastructure.
Movik’s REACH architecture is the industry’s first solution that intelligently delivers real-time RAN awareness to the mobile network. Exposing real-time intelligence from the RAN – the part of the network that impacts efficiency and QoE the most – enables operators to better plan, manage, and control their most valuable network asset. With Movik’s REACH architecture, each individual element of the access network, down to the sector and device, become independently visible and controllable, allowing operators to take precise actions and policies on a per-sector, per-condition, per-content, and per-subscriber basis.
Movik Launches Industry’s First 3G/4G/LTE Correlation Solution
REACH™ Architecture Enables Deep Unified View into Operational Efficiencies of a Multi RAT Overlay Network
Westford, Mass. — May 22, 2012 — Movik Networks, the Intelligent RAN company, today announced the immediate availability of the industry’s first 3G/4G/LTE real-time correlation solution for intelligent RAN traffic management, Movik’s LTE Correlation and Multi RAT (Radio Access Technology) platform. Movik’s innovative solution allows operators to correlate in real-time not only what is going on in each individual network, whether 3G or 4G, but also correlate in real-time the mobility between the networks and the effects of usage as subscribers transition between networks. Operators no longer have to think of their networks as separate verticals; with Movik’s LTE Correlation and Multi RAT solution, they now have a single, unified view into the overall operational efficiency of all their networks.
Wireless operators have seen explosive growth in data traffic as a result of higher speed wireless data networks, mobile video and social media and ever increasing USB devices, smartphones and tablets. With demand for wireless data outpacing the mobile broadband infrastructure available, operators are investing in new, emerging RAT such as LTE and HSPA+. These newer access technologies have to work with existing technologies and to address this issue; operators are running layered, multi-generational, multi technology Radio Access Networks.
Movik’s LTE Correlation and Multi RAT platform, based on Movik’s REACH™ (Report, Export, Act, Control, HetNet) architecture, enables operators to resolve these problems and gain deep, unified insight into the operational efficiencies of their multi RAT overlay network. Operators can now trigger multi RAT traffic flow management and policies in real-time enabling subscribers to be optimally connected, anytime, anywhere.
“Our surveys show that sophisticated real-time management of traffic in the RAN, at the subscriber level, is becoming an increasingly high priority for network operators,” said Graham Finnie, chief analyst at Heavy Reading. “As operators begin the transition from 3G to 4G, they will also need to be able to apply these management techniques dynamically to subscribers moving between these networks, as seamlessly as possible.”
“Movik is pleased to announce the commercial availability of its LTE and Multi RAT platform that supports both 3G and 4G networks simultaneously,” said John St. Amand, CEO, Movik. “Operators now have for the first time, a deep, correlated view of the real-time RAN that enables them to understand exactly what is going on by device, sector, or network. They can finally see what the subscriber QoE is as they transition between 3G and 4G, and understand network behavior, whether it’s dropped calls, data sessions, or capacity degradation during those transitions as a result of various application or content usage. Movik’s LTE Correlation and Multi RAT platform provides the kind of granular visibility that allows operators to manage both their CAPEX and QoE much more thoughtfully for both their 3G and 4G networks simultaneously.”
Trials of Movik’s LTE Correlation and Multi RAT platform are underway in North America and APAC.
