Tektronix Debuts Iris Performance Intelligence

Tektronix Communications unveiled its Iris Performance Intelligence (IPI) solution for end-to-end analysis and reporting capabilities combined with a KPI/KQI modeling engine that allows operators to better link desired business outcomes to events that occur at the network level.

The IPI is designed to provide multiple departments within an operator the ability to monitor and report on applications using a real-time and historic KPI dashboard. This provides the capability to identify network, service and IP performance issues, drill-down to their root cause, and proactively fix the issue before customers are even aware there is a problem. IPI allows multiple departments within an operator to develop their own Key Quality Indicators based on the industry standard categories of accessibility, retention, integrity and performance.

Applications within IPI include voice and data applications such as Web Browsing, E-mail, SMS, MMS and other services traversing on the data/IP network. User-defined applications can be associated to specific URLs, IP addresses and port numbers, application protocols and APNs. IPI can also monitor the performance of key network elements associated with legacy, 3G and 4G/IP networks.

"Realizing that every customer and every network is different, Tektronix Communications developed its Iris Performance Intelligence solution to enable specialized user workflows for unprecedented speed and efficiency in proactive network management and root cause path analysis," said Mark Driedger, vice president and general manager of Tektronix Communications' Network Management business.
