Reverb Networks and Guavus Partner to Make Service Provider Networks More Efficient With Streaming Analytics

Partnership Will Enable Carriers to More Efficiently Automate Network Optimization Based on Fine-Grained Policies

NICE, FRANCE and SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- TM FORUM LIVE! -- Reverb Networks, a developer of intelligent Self Optimizing Network (SON) solutions designed to provide mobile network operators with improved operational and spectral efficiencies, has announced that it has partnered with Guavus, a leading provider of big data analytics solutions for operational intelligence. The partnership is based on a joint solution that allows communication service providers (CSPs) to quickly and easily deploy new sites and maximize the performance of their wireless network affordably. The solution combines Reverb's Radio Access Network Centralized Self Optimizing Network (cSON) solution, which collects detailed radio key performance indicator information and makes this data available for analysis, with the Guavus Reflex™ operational intelligence platform. Guavus gives CSPs an end-to-end view across their network enabling them to dynamically create specific policies for video optimization, bandwidth reservation, and interference reduction on a per subscriber and per sector level.

"Guavus and Reverb have a successful history of working together within large-scale carrier deployments, including jointly providing RAN analysis for a Tier-1 wireless service provider on traffic of more than 20M subscribers," said Zoran Kehler, CEO of Reverb. "This proven experience, and Guavus' track record of innovation for streaming analytics, made them the logical choice for partnering to jointly bring CSPs an integrated SON and mobile analytics solution for more efficient network operations."

"Guavus' operational intelligence platform combined with Reverb's InteliSON module is a carrier grade solution that paves the way for CSPs to not only achieve true end-to-end visibility into both the bearer and signaling streams, but gain additional insight into network operations so they can realize greater operational and efficiency gains. Our joint solution enables end-to-end network management, all the way from the user's device, through the RAN, to the OSS/BSS, and enables the operator to optimize networks to achieve both revenue and performance goals," said Ben Parker, principal technologist at Guavus.

InteliSON modules include Coverage and Capacity Optimization, Dynamic Load Balancing, Automatic Neighbor Relations, Mobility Robustness Optimization and SON Director, for both 3G and 4G networks. Reverb Networks has been awarded a number of SON patents for technologies, algorithms and methods implemented in its software. The company is partnering with leading managed services providers to offer the benefits of the full SON ecosystem to mobile operators. The Company's partnership with Guavus makes InteliSON the application that turns customer and network data into the right action at the right time for the operator's network.

The Guavus Reflex™ Operational Intelligence Platform provides a real time integrated view across customers' business and operations for improved decision making. As a result, CSPs benefit from an end-to-end view across their enterprise with a highly granular resolution and actionable insights that can be embedded into automated workflows to rapidly implement value added services and develop network policies that effectively reduce capital and operational costs. Guavus Reflex uses highly optimized computational algorithms and machine learning to distill actionable insights from very large datasets. This allows for continual optimization of the computational process, as well as enables improved forward-looking and predictive analysis, real-time decision-making and workflow automation.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
