Stockholm, Sweden, 2009/09/28 - Polystar OSIX, a leading supplier of Service Assurance solutions, has announced that NetCom, Norwegian leading mobile telecommunications company, has successfully deployed Polystar Network Performance Monitoring solution for Gb on SDH/STM-1.
NetCom is already effectively using Polystar Real-time Network Monitoring and Network Service Assurance solutions to monitor and troubleshoot its 2G/3G networks and will now benefit from the recent implementation of the GEMINI technology platform. This solution enables the efficient monitoring of Gb over SDH, by providing a unique technique of handling it without usage of external multiplexors.
This Polystar product enables operators to apply a new way of using the old technology. The Gb over SDH monitoring solution can be deployed in parallel to a GboIP and GboE1 in the same Service Assurance solution. Support of several generations of BSC networking equipment on one hand, and the efficient system architecture on the other hand, lead to a considerable reduction of administrative costs. With the Polystar OSIX Gb over SDH probe and the Service Assurance Solution, Netcom will be in the position to maximise the availability and performance of their GPRS services, result being a measurable increase of subscriber satisfaction. The implemented MediaProbe platform will enable Netcom to monitor both User and Control plane. The User plane packets are aggregated in a way that allows the operator to display the volume of transmitted user data rapidly and validate the information in real-time.
“With the Polystar MediaProbe platform Netcom will be able to efficiently and cost effectively monitor Control and User Plane, to measure the received throughput, track the individual subscriber's actual experience in the network and obtain an insight into the overall service quality delivered to each individual subscriber”, said Lars Erik Gjervan, Netcom OSS Manager. “We are convinced that this state-of-the-art solution will comply with our high technical and business demands and look forward to continuing our existing cooperation with Polystar”.
NetCom is Norway's second largest mobile operator, offers mobile communication solutions. The company is owned by the Swedish Finland group TeliaSonera, which is the Nordic and Baltic leader in communications. NetCom has had a strong and steady growth since it broke telecom monopoly in 1993. It is headquartered in Oslo with regional offices in Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger, Kristiansand and Portsmouth. NetCom has a total of 650 employees.
