Self-service, real-time performance management dashboards help to successfully ensure QoS and  reliability of IP/Ethernet mobile backhaul network.

Extending IP/MPLS and Carrier Ethernet technologies into backhaul aggregation and access networks clearly enables a sustainable infrastructure capable of meeting  ever-growing mobile broadband traffic demands. However, managing backhaul performance and quality of service (QoS) on these dynamic and flexible networks is proving more complex than mobile operators and backhaul service providers ever anticipated. Some of the critical challenges of assuring mobile backhaul performance include:

  • Understanding the backhaul performance of traditional services being carried over IP and Carrier Ethernet networks
  • Obtaining a combined vendor-agnostic backhaul performance view across fixed and microwave transport domains
  • Maintaining the end-to-end service quality and SLAs achieved by traditional backhauling technologies
  • Accurately dimensioning the new infrastructure relative to the actual demand and future forecast of mobile data traffic

InfoVista’s approach is a network lifecycle-aware solution that enables mobile operators and backhaul service providers to secure a smooth transition from deployment to optimization. Our solution provides unique backhaul performance management and visualization tools to network operations centers (NOCs) and network engineering teams to successfully deploy reliable IP/Ethernet mobile backhaul infrastructure.

Our Metro Ethernet Forum-aligned and carrier-scalable solution combines best-of-breed capabilities with award-winning collaborative reporting portals, which enable efficient monitoring and troubleshooting of current and future multi-vendor and multi-technology backhaul networks, from access to core.
