Today’s technologies and services make tough demands on mobile network performance, posing strict requirements on things like packet loss rates, delay, and jitter. Netrounds lets you quality-assure both the backhaul and the radio interface of your mobile network, from basic viability of infrastructure segments to the subtleties of end-user service quality perception.
By automating activation tests, you can deliver services faster and ensure committed service levels. With multi-purpose Test Agents deployed throughout the network, either as physical network appliances running on bare metal x86 or as VNFs in virtualized infrastructure, you can reduce manual labor in daily monitoring and minimize troubleshooting truck rolls.
- Netrounds can be used to validate backhaul performance through all stages of the network life cycle: for activation testing, day-to-day monitoring, and troubleshooting.
- Reflector-based testing (TWAMP/ITU-T Y.1731) can target massive numbers of reflector devices in the network, achieving extensive testing coverage with a very modest number of Netrounds Test Agents.
- Test Agents can run either on virtualized infrastructure (NFVI) or on bare-metal x86 hardware, making deployment flexible.
