Richardson, Texas, Sept. 10, 2009 – Tektronix Communications, a leading worldwide provider of Communications Test and Network Intelligence Solutions, announced that it has been selected by Pelephone, an Israeli-based telecom service network operator, to provide a single, integrated network monitoring solution to ensure end-to-end quality of service across both its legacy CDMA network (1xRTT, EV-DO) and next generation UMTS network (GSM, GPRS, UMTS).
“Since inception, we have been dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality mobile experience,” said Doron Kurz, vice president of engineering, Pelephone. “From initial network trials, we were impressed with the performance of Tektronix Communications’ Network Intelligence portfolio and its ability to cover multiple network technologies. We are relying on these performance monitoring solutions to provide us with the critical insight and real-time information we need to manage our networks and provide the high network quality that our customers have come to expect.”
Pelephone is integrating Tektronix Communications’ Network Intelligence Solutions, which include the OptiMon suite of advanced network optimization products and GeoProbe with Advanced Performance Monitoring (APM), part of the Unified Assurance suite of applications, for its mobile network. Tektronix Communications’ Network Intelligence Solutions provide an actionable path for network operators to make better business decisions through better data collection, correlation and analysis of information. The OptiMon solution allows Pelephone to identify the root cause of quality of service issues in real-time. GeoProbe’s network-wide probing capability provides visibility to network control and traffic; by adding APM, Pelephone can proactively address network performance issues across the entire network through the use of real-time alerts and ongoing historical analysis.
“Pelephone needs to provide consistent and dependable service to its nearly three million subscribers as they travel throughout Israel and roam abroad,” said Doug Dickerson, president, Network Intelligence Solutions, Tektronix Communications. “By deploying our Network Intelligence Solutions, Pelephone is able to identify and address network issues quickly and proactively, making it transparent to their subscribers and therefore alleviating unnecessary service calls and ultimately increasing customer satisfaction.”
OptiMon is an integrated suite of products that gather performance data from all the equipment on the 3G RAN interfaces (Iub, Iu, Iur). Captured data is analyzed to provide KPIs and long term trending analysis. Beyond detecting performance issues, users can also drill down into protocol detail level to determine root cause analysis. OptiMon’s unique feature set makes Radio Network Optimization and troubleshooting of mobile networks more efficient. At the same time, it provides measurements and analysis results that are not provided by other test tools. More information can be found at: www.tek.com/optimon.
