MNOs need detailed analytics in order to develop more personalized services. This means that analytics solution vendors must go beyond the collection of server logs and use stateful inspection technology up to Layer 7, including classification of protocols and associated metadata, 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. n x 10 Gps per box). Virtualization or stacking of several appliances running the probe software enables monitoring of hundreds of Gps and millions of subscribers.
ixEngine Application Classification and Metadata Engine
Qosmos ixEngine application classification and metadata engine is a software library with constantly updated protocol and application plug-ins, in line with new applications used over landline and mobile networks.
Designed to be embedded in analytics solutions, ixEngine APIs provide full visibility on what applications and services are consumed by subscribers.
