Radcom Omni-Q for IMS Service Management

Radcom OmniQ for IMS Radcom

Working with modern IP based telephony you know how complex these networks are. Especially in IMS environments where call flows have become very complex. When a call fails it an be a disaster to find the root cause without having the right tools at your disposal. And how do you report to management about network performance, user experience or billing verification?

    IMS — the Key to New Service Management

  • Fixed and mobile communication service providers around the world are embracing the IMS (IP Multimedia functional framework is the ultimate means to significantly reducing operating expenses, while gaining the flexibility needed to smoothlySubsystems) architecture. This new introduce new customized subscriber-centric services. The IMS paradigm is a huge leap in complexity. The complexity stems from IMS’s multi-vendor, multi-protocol, multi-service environment and the inherent impact of these complexities on scalability. Operators therefore find that deploying a monitoring solution for IMS is indispensable. The ability to craft each and every message event into a comprehensive end-to-end session object, through a real-time, online correlation engine, is just one of the many unique features that Omni-Q™ brings to IMS monitoring. The network elements themselves, across multiple vendors, are unable to perform this service. Ad hoc correlation on pre-selected sessions or offline post-processing no longer meet operators’ demanding requirements.

  • IMS Challenges

  • IMS signaling flows are more complex. This means that more network element functions are involved in establishing calls, and that signaling traffic volume is significantly larger. Establishing an end-to-end call/session is a mandatory prerequisite for any meaningful network visibility, troubleshooting, or tracing of customer complaints.

  • Superior Troubleshooting and Correlation

  • The Omni-Q solution offers fully correlated, end-to-end, session-based signaling analysis that is integrated into the database of eDRs (extended call detail records). The actual signaling frames of the call are stored, and the link is saved as a parameter in the eDR that the probe sends to the database. The benefit to the customer is that in-depth troubleshooting capabilities, conditioned through analysis of the signaling frames, are easily accessible from network and trace reports as drill-downs. The Omni-Q solution enables complete end-to-end session analysis of calls encompassing multiple IMS, VoIP, SS7 and RTP protocols. This is achieved by using a sophisticated high performance and scalable online run-time correlation engine that concatenates eDRs by subjecting them to parallel processing of multiple correlation algorithms.

  • Main Advantages

    Scalable, probe-based, high performance offering enables complete view of the call
  • Unparalleled runtime, correlation engine, utilizing parallel processing
  • Long-standing expertise in protocol decoding and analysis
  • Flow type detection and classification
  • Online IP, TCP, SCTP and Diameter reassembly using RADCOM’s proprietary GearSet™ technology
