 Paris, France – March, 6, 2012

Anritsu, leading provider of service assurance solutions, today announced it is partnering with Qosmos to embed its ixEngine Network Intelligence (NI) technology into Anritsu’s MasterClaw® Service Management Suite. As a result, Anritsu’s mobile network operator (MNO) customers enjoy unprecedented visibility into their service operations, enabling an improved customer experience and service levels.

Anritsu’s MasterClaw® Service Management Suite provides mobile operators with an unparalleled, instant overview of the network’s service operation and customer experience, with easy access to workflows, analytical reports, and SLA management. This results in lowered operational costs, improved service quality, better-managed partners and reduced churn.

Qosmos ixEngine is a unique Network Intelligence SDK that provides unprecedented visibility into data traffic, describing thousands of protocols and metadata attributes for the most accurate picture of real-time data activity on networks. Going beyond traditional Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, Qosmos treats the network as a real-time database, to identify, query, and extract specific data with unparalleled precision and detail.

Qosmos ixEngine delivers real-time visibility into network traffic for Anritsu’s MasterClaw® , resulting in greater granularity and accuracy in the type of data extracted by the system. MNOs can have instant knowledge of what is going on in the network, as well as access customer usage and behavior metrics such as what services they are using, how much, what device, and more.

“By embedding Qosmos technology into MasterClaw® we will improve the speed, depth and breadth of information capture possible for our solution,” said Neil Tomlinson, Global Marketing, Product Management and R&D Director at Anritsu. “Our MNO customers benefit with a broader array of mobile traffic metrics and analysis methods, which they can leverage to improve their competitiveness, operational cost, and business performance.”

“Service Providers, their networks, and their customers all have unique needs. In order to meet them, customized service assurance solutions are required. Embedded Qosmos network intelligence enables Anritsu to offer tailored OSS Solutions that sharpen service providers’ competitive edge,” said Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO of Qosmos.
