Anritsu's service assurance architecture uses passive net- work probes to collect all traffic from all network elements, including user plane and signaling protocol traffic. Network traffic data is usually aggregated in Call Data Records (CDR), i.e., specific data structures containing info related to network events (e.g., phone calls, data sessions, SMS). Traditional service assurance solutions only provided basic near real-time monitoring of the network to alert the service provider (particularly, the Network Operations Department) when a malfunction is detected, but with limited ability to drive insights on causes. Anritsu has extended its focus to more sophisticated analytics leveraging big data technology, thus being able to automate the most complex data correlations and investigations, thanks to the ability to analyze a greater depth and variety of the collected network data.
