A SINGLE SOLUTION FOR 24/7 MONITORING OF ALL MOBILE NETWORKS

Modern mobile networks are under constant evolution with new technologies and techniques coming from various vendors. In addition, since competition is fierce in the mobile network marketplace, operators are under pressure to maximize the performance of their networks and provide their customers with flawless services and precise billing. To achieve and maintain such quality of service (QoS), they need powerful, first-class instruments to ensure interoperability between IP and traditional transport technologies as well as between different vendors’ equipment.

The BrixMobile solution. Highly Scalable System Not in all networks are massive and costly monitoring
The BrixMobile solution.
Highly Scalable System
Not in all networks are massive and costly monitoring and reporting systems needed from the beginning of use. In many cases,
monitoring and troubleshooting starts with smaller systems, and then expands as network monitoring needs grow. BrixMobile’s
easy scalability provides small and mid-sized network operators with a solution that evolves from a small core system to a more
advanced system that delivers complete support for 3G/2G and mobile core networks, as well as new technologies such as LTE.
As an open solution, BrixMobile is a robust call data storage platform for reporting applications (e.g., key performance indicators
(KPIs) on network performance monitoring, billing verification, or any in-house solution). The call data is accessible via standard
northbound interfaces, enabling the BrixMobile platform integration as a new data source on any operative NMS solution.
Analysis, Troubleshooting and Estimation
BrixMobile offers highly efficient end-user tools for network-problem troubleshooting, customer-trouble ticket investigation, network-
failure isolation and many other needs. Not only can users access and investigate the subscribers event log on XDR databases,
but they can benefit from detailed protocol views that help them identify the cause for reported problems.
BrixMobile supports the latest 3GPP protocols, including LTE, HSPA and 3G/2G technologies, as well as the newest vendor-
proprietary specifications.

BrixMobile Components

The BrixMobile system consists of Verifier capture units, signaling processing units and end-user tools for business intelligence reporting, XDR queries and detailed protocol analysis (M5 Analyzer option). Configuration and health monitoring is performed through BrixMobile’s System Administrator 5000 application. EXFO provides turnkey installation and training to help you get started quickly and easily.

BrixMobile Software—Business Intelligence Reporting Packages
BrixMobile reporting packages offer easy navigation via dashboards, which provide high-level status information about the
underlying KPIs, showing any alarming key performance indicator (KPI). The most critical performance indicators can be configured
using a threshold limit, and the alarms using an e-mail notification. Providing the essential network status and performance reporting
at a glance, BrixView dashboards for BrixMobile truly helps decision making.
BrixMobile’s near real-time KPI dashboards make it easier to start troubleshooting sessions in order to solve the root cause
of a subscriber’s reported problem, to optimize network element utilization, to verify equipment upgrades and new service roll-outs,
and to make better business decisions based on long-term history reports.
BrixView report packages contain a wide set of pre-defined KPI dashboards for network quality monitoring based on signaling
events and on-demand reports for long-term history reporting. It is also possible to configure and create your own reports.
BrixMobile dashboards contain very effective data aggregation and drill-down capabilities from the highest level information to
the most detailed protocol data. TOP x comparison charts expose the most overloaded network entities on the network, which is
the first step for isolating a problem.
Various BrixMobile packages are available, including CS Core, PS Core and LTE interfaces. A Roaming Analysis package containing
on-demand reports for detailed roaming analysis is also available.

BrixMobile Software—XDR Views and Protocols Analysis

BrixMobile’s web-based XDR Search enables you to easily retrieve a call/session/operation within a large XDR database in just

a few seconds, searching the XDRs according to a specific time frame (day, starting time, duration) or event type (successful or unsuccessful end state). The queries can be extended with subscriber details such as IMSI, IMEI, calling/called party number or link/network element information.

If the XDR information is not complete enough for resolving the problem, you can turn to the NetHawk M5 Analyzer option for

advanced investigation. Featuring a truly intuitive GUI for offline use as a Windows client application, M5 Analyzer comes with

effective protocol monitoring capabilities.

The NetHawk M5 Analyzer option simplifies protocol analysis thanks to multiple advanced views:

The Message Sequence Chart view (ladder diagram) clearly displays the message flows.

The Single-Line Decoding view presents a one-line sum-up of the event information and protocol content.

The Detailed Decoding view provides the full signaling information.

Protocol messages are correlated between the views, making it easy to carry out the analysis while switching from one view to another. The NetHawk M5 option also features an extensive Protocol Help tool that delivers additional general information about the 3GPP releases and detailed information about hundreds of LTE/3G/Core specifications.
