The biggest challenge facing IP networks today is the lack of visibility into the growing number of cloud applications and services that’s causing congestion and poor quality of experience for subscribers. Current tools such as DPI hardware do not provide operators with the data needed to pinpoint the impact that these flows are having on the network, making it impossible to identify and resolve service issues in real time. They lack the ability to identify encrypted flows—which now constitutes 50% of traffic—and the cost effective scale required for broad deployment. With all of these factors combined, buildouts and performance troubleshooting turn into costly games of trial and error.
Dr. Craig Labovitz, GM and architect of Nokia Deepfield software, will demonstrate how operators can have instant awareness of all applications and services flowing through their networks, and how they can use this real time, multi-dimensional data (cloud and network) to identify exactly where problems are and what is needed to resolve them in the most cost effective way possible.
