vEPC ASSURANCE

What if you could deliver assured
services for VoLTE and video
through virtual infrastructure with
complete confidence?

Virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC) functions as programmable software offers service providers increased agility and reduced opex and capex. Without a solution that bridges network and service operations between physical and network function virtual infrastructure (NFVI), virtualization also increases network complexity considerably. 

CENX’s comprehensive data and visualization, real-time operations, and closed-loop automation capabilities enable mobile service providers to take full advantage of multi-vendor, vEPC solutions, while avoiding much of the increased operational complexity and costs.

CENX enables end-to-end visualization, assurance, and closed-loop automation across
mobile network services and vEPC infrastructure

WHAT IF YOU COULD VISUALIZE AND MANAGE SERVICES DELIVERED THROUGH YOUR VEPC AND YOUR PHYSICAL INFRASTRUCTURE TOGETHER IN A SINGLE PANE?

CENX ingests all your network inventory and service topology data—across both physical and virtual infrastructure—correlates it and then visualizes it in a single pane of glass with real-time fault, performance, utilization, and other network KPIs. Visualize even the most complex core networks with CENX. CENX’s real-time operations and closed-loop enablement capabilities enable service providers to deliver premium QoS and QoE for data service delivered across physical and virtual infrastructure. No need to swivel-chair between multiple management systems with CENX.


WHAT IF YOU COULD DELIVER AMAZING VOICE OVER LTE (VOLTE) SERVICE QUALITY THROUGH YOUR VEPC?

vEPC enables quicker, more elastic, and lower cost delivery of VoLTE services. CENX provides quick resolution to loss of service by monitoring VoLTE performance and correlating KPIs in real time while vEPC VNFs and NFVI are under various load conditions, side-by-side with physical network element performance. To demonstrate this use case, CENX used Cisco’s Quantum Virtual Packet Core (QvPC), Openstack VIM, and Spirent Landslide™.


WHAT IF YOU COULD GUARANTEE SERVICE QUALITY OF EXPERIENCE (QOE) FOR IOT VIDEO MONITORING SERVICES?

As IoT devices, platforms, and services become ubiquitous, assuring service QoE and availability in an automated, orchestrated way is increasingly critical to service providers and their customers. In this use case, CENX provides real-time troubleshooting to resolve low service quality of a home monitoring video stream over LTE, as it traverses the vEPC. To demonstrate this use case, CENX used Cisco’s virtual Packet Gateway, VMWare vSphere VIM and Ixia Ixload™.


WHAT IF YOU COULD ANALYZE ROOT CAUSE OF LOW MEAN OPINION SCORE FOR VOLTE AND VOICE OVER WIFI (VOWIFI) IN A SINGLE PANE?

As small cell, carrier WiFi, and other new technologies emerge, it’s important that a service assurance solution can accommodate them flexibly. In this use case, CENX’s real-time analytics enables service providers to perform root cause analysis of low Mean Opinion Scores (MOS) for VoWiFi and VoLTE calls. To demonstrate this use case, CENX used Mitel’s vPGW and virtual Evolved Packet Data Gateway (vEPDG), VMWare Integrated OpenStack (VIO), and Ixia Ixload™.
