COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech, the world's leading vendor of intelligent network adapters, today released the latest brief in its "Time to ReThink" series of insights into crucial issues facing network analysis OEM vendors. In "Time to ReThink Mobile Network Analysis," Napatech argues there is a growing need for a new class of network analysis solutions capable of keeping up with the rapid growth in mobile data traffic.
"Carriers are under pressure to generate more revenue. They now recognize providing higher quality and innovative services is the way forward," stated Erik Norup, President and CMO, Napatech. "But to do this, you need detailed network and application visibility at key points in the network. Together with our partners, Napatech now has the capability to help Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) fulfill that need."
Napatech's products provide the tools for real-time visibility in mobile networks. New tunneling protocol support extracts information from GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) and IP-in-IP tunnels to allow efficient analysis of apps and services used on mobile networks. Napatech adapters can also perform flow identification and intelligent flow distribution to multiple server CPU cores based on the contents of the tunnels, rather than on the tunnel itself. This enables TEMs and their customers to accelerate their mobile data analysis application.
Napatech has also partnered with Deep Pack Inspection (DPI) vender Qosmos to produce the DeepFlow telecom probe, an analytics platform with high-speed application recognition for real-time big data analysis of mobile network traffic. In addition, new onboard IEEE 1588-2008 support will deliver nanosecond precision time-stamping capabilities that can measure jitter and delay—this is crucial for carrier quality of service assurance.
"Napatech's new products and features coupled with standard servers provide TEMs with a powerful platform that reduces complexity, time-to-market and cost," added Norup. "Our products can off-load and accelerate data analysis, thus maximizing the processing power in servers and allowing carriers to build a complete service usage profile. This provides TEMs with an effective tool to help carriers customize services and increase their revenue in the face of growing mobile data traffic."
