MYCOM OSI announces network performance management upgrades

MYCOM OSI has launched an upgrade to its PrOptima solution in a bid to boost carrier network management capabilities.

The network assurance specialist claims PrOptima 5 will introduce new, open APIs which facilitate the rapid roll out of network monitoring solutions and more advanced integration with third party applications, such as analytics, to develop greater insights into near real-time network performance data.

MYCOM OSI says network/service operations centre (NOC/SOC) teams are able to resolve performance issues faster by aiding root cause analysis techniques, and as such gain greater clarity into vulnerable or degrading cell locations as well as enhanced visualisation of general RAN performance.

Along with the upgrade to PrOptima, the vendor has also announced its new service called the Early Warning System. EWS, claims MYCOM OSI, utilises self-learning algorithms to monitor traffic flow based on network conditions in a context-aware fashion; considering time of day, week, month or year. It says users are able to set a variety of conditions where, if triggered, they will receive notifications and warnings from the system to help prevent data loss. The aim is to gain rapid and actionable insight into a wide range of potential issues to help NOC/SOC teams prevent further data loss or associated problems occurring.

“To date, the vast majority of Operations Centers have failed to include performance data and therefore failed to be adequately proactive. Traffic is the one metric that suffers if anything goes wrong in the network – this is the network metric that users, not networks, generate and is most closely associated with revenue – so CSPs care about it,” said Dirk Michel, VP Solutions at MYCOM OSI. “By using traffic absorption rates at network ingress points as a near real-time surveillance sensor, and continuously calibrating these sensors with updated targets based on historical traffic levels, operations center teams can really start to listen to the heartbeat of the network. When an anomaly is identified they can instantly kick in with their NOC/SOC pacemaker system to take rapid action.”
