The telemetry-enabled Brocade MLXe and Brocade Telemetry Application help mobile service providers to extract key insights from their networks. By leveraging the scale of the Brocade MLXe Series, the solution enables non-disruptive extraction and analysis of massive data flows, which helps providers to make intelligent, real-time business decisions.
As the world becomes more interconnected, digitized, and globalized from the proliferation of mobile devices, mobile service providers are facing an enormous surge in traffic that continues to grow exponentially. While network traffic levels continue to explode, it has become increasingly important for mobile service providers to have greater visibility into their network and services. More sophisticated levels of network visibility can provide the analytics to:
However, it is a significant challenge for mobile service providers to aggregate, filter, and replicate real-time data to the analytics tools. A single network link may carry traffic from multiple services, such as fixed, 2G, 3G, and 4G, but each service must be monitored separately using different analytic tools. The consolidated traffic must be replicated and filtered so that each tool receives only the portion of traffic it is intended to analyze. Existing technologies such as mirroring or span ports do not adequately meet the needs of mobile service providers.
The telemetry-enabled Brocade MLXe Series Routers and the Brocade Telemetry Application address this challenge by supporting the massive scale of mobile networks with the ability to aggregate, replicate, and filter traffic at line rate, delivering to each tool only the traffic it needs. This approach limits the impact to the revenue-generating production network and dramatically reduces the cost of the telemetry network. The Telemetry Application increases usability and simplifies network operations by providing levels of automation and supporting provisioning of area, region, site, or individual devices as dictated by the network operator.
