Equipped with InfoVista's flow-based capacity planning solution, CSPs and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) can simplify and increase the accuracy of their IP/MPLS core network capacity planning, optimizing the efficiency of their capital investment and current traffic engineering policies. Capacity planning teams are empowered by enhanced visibility and analytics available from the application layer to obtain the greatest value from the existing network infrastructure.
5View Netflow extracts the valuable application traffic information from the network in a highly-scalable collection platform that in turn feeds the powerful, multi-dimensional analytics engine within 5View Mediation. VistaInsight adds full performance assurance capabilities.
InfoVista has a strong commitment to ensuring that our network performance orchestration solutions are performing at their best for you. Customers who take advantage of our training, consulting and support services experience faster return on investment and more successful implementations by working together with our experts.
Capacity planning has been affected by the exponential growth rates of mobile and business data traffic volumes. As a result of this growth, the capacity planning process has accelerated from a yearly process to a monthly exercise. Many factors can affect core network capacity planning for CSPs and MNOs, including mobile data traffic volumes, the addition of new POPs, new service offerings, mini-DCs, peering and transit traffic, customers with stringent SLA's, migration from 3G to 4G LTE and beyond, expansion into new regions and mergers and acquisitions.
InfoVista's flow-based capacity planning solution simplifies and increases the accuracy of IP/MPLS core network capacity planning. With CAPEX at a premium, core network infrastructure capacity investments are subject to an increasingly stringent justification and review process. Making any type of infrastructure financial investment is a dedicated effort and any decisions about infrastructure investment must be quickly and accurately weighed against their financial impact and benefits.
Building a business case for increasing capacity requires that capacity planning teams have accurate and up-to-date information about core network traffic volumes, traffic types, peering and transit traffic as well as traffic sources and destinations. CSPs and MNOs need the ability to collect more than just network usage data, but the application traffic details available in relevant flow data, aggregate that data and then run sophisticated analytics in multiple dimensions to obtain the greatest value from it to support a robust decision making process.
Employing accurate data available through InfoVista's flow-based capacity planning solution ensures that capacity planning teams can properly justify capital expenditures (CAPEX) for infrastructure improvements and increase the probability of making investments exactly when and where they are required.
Make sound infrastructure investment decisions and reveal where there is a risk of underestimating or overestimating capacity to prevent misdirected CAPEX outlays, thus minimizing financial exposure.
Establishing and validating capacity and performance baselines provides an indication of where resources may be over- or under-utilized and empowers engineers to best adjust policies, traffic engineering or reposition equipment to optimize the use of existing capacity.
Each peering or transit relationship includes both benefits and risk in terms of cost, quality-of-service and SLAs. Detailed information on AS-to-AS traffic is critical to determining whether or not peering agreements and existing policies are negatively impacting bandwidth, costs or QoS.
The impact of new service offerings on network capacity requires real-time status of current network loading to effectively judge whether capacity investments are required immediately or in the future.
