Ixia Introduces GTP-Session Awareness Visibility

Ixia introduced a network visibility solution to help mobile operators gain better insight and control over individual user sessions in order to increase customers’ quality of experience.

Highlights of the Ixia Anue GSC include:

  • GTP-session awareness -- Offloads GTP session correlation from monitoring tools while keeping GTP sessions together across multiple probes. The Anue GSC understands GTP protocol and can deliver all packets from a single subscriber to a single tool as well as send GTP-session and non-GTP, non-session traffic to different pools of probes.
  • A scalable load balancing solution -- Distributes millions of subscriber sessions to tools in a 32-port configuration, doubling the number of ports for twice the performance in a 2RU chassis.
  • Carrier-grade robustness — NEBS Level 1 certified, including high-availability features such as redundant management ports, power supplies and fan trays.
