MNOs need detailed analytics in order to develop more personalized services. This means that analytics solution vendors must go beyond collection of server logs and use L4-L7 Deep Packet Inspection technology to gather detailed information directly from the traffic, in real-time.
Custom Probe for Analytics
This type of probe developed with the help of Qosmos Professional Services is designed to identify the application behind each IP session and deliver detailed metadata from protocols and applications.
The extracted traffic information is injected into a third party analytics system through a standard connector.
Flow decoding is carried out in real time, at core network speeds (e.g. 20 Gps per box). Virtualization or stacking of several appliances running the probe software enables monitoring of hundreds of Gps and millions of subscribers.
