Distributed VoLTE QoE Monitoring to be Showcased by Accedian and Sandvine at Mobile World Congress 2016

First ever demonstration of complete EPC to eNodeB visibility, combined with network policy control and business & network analytics, for VoLTE QoE.

Montreal, Canada – February 16, 2016 – Accedian, the end-to-end network performance experts, announced today that it has teamed up with network policy control vendor Sandvine to demonstrate how Accedian’s new FlowBROKER™ distributed packet broker solution can be used with a centralized implementation of Sandvine’s products to achieve real-time, VoLTE QoE monitoring across the entire mobile network from evolved packet core (EPC) to eNodeB.

The solution will be showcased during Mobile World Congress 2016, February 22-25, in Barcelona. Learn more and book a private meeting with Accedian’s CEO and CTO.

FlowBROKER™, the industry’s first distributed packet broker solution, separates traffic access from analysis, allowing centralized tools to analyze traffic at any location, without compromising data integrity, granularity, or timing precision.

In the demo, Accedian’s FlowBROKER™, orchestrated by the SkyLIGHT VCX Controller™, will remotely capture VoLTE calls from multiple locations in an LTE mobile network. This will allow the Sandvine solution to analyze VoLTE QoE at any point along a call’s session path to provide complete insight into each user’s experience. This allows one-way calling issues, invisible at the core, to be detected for the first time.

“Accedian’s FlowBROKER™ extends the reach and utility of Sandvine’s traffic classification and analysis, resulting in segmented, localized visibility into VoLTE call setup and signaling performance, and the end-to-end quality of experience for each caller,” said Chris Frederick, Sandvine’s Director of Partnerships. “These technologies together give mobile network operators complete, end-to-end QoE visibility, which they need to deploy services like VoLTE, and prepare for 5G.”

“The ability to make QoE analysis ‘location aware’ is crucial if operators are to rapidly isolate and resolve performance issues affecting end users’ quality of experience,” said Henrik Nydell, Senior Product Manager at Accedian. “A combination of virtualized passive and active test technologies and network policy control can create a ubiquitous instrumentation layer to form the foundation competitive mobile networks will be built on. Our demonstration with Sandvine shows how easily this can be achieved today.”
