Nexus8620 Service Monitoring in Converged Networks - GSM / GPRS / UMTS
Source: Nexus Telecom
In today's competitive environment, wireless service providers are expected to provide their end users with the highest level of Quality of Service (QoS). In traditional circuit-switched networks, passive signaling monitoring systems are considered as the state-of-the -art solutions for providing insight into the networks' performance. In the new 2.5G (GPRS) and 3 (UMTS) networks this type of passive monitoring is not sufficient. The packet-switched part, that extends the 2G network, requires new monitoring concepts This paper describes the monitoring approach for converging networks where circuit switched and packet switched are running in parallel and interact with each other.
