KPN Selects RADCOM Omni-Q Solution to Monitor Services on its IMS Network
RADCOM, Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: RDCM), a leading network test and service assurance solutions provider, has announced that KPN, the Netherlands' major telecom operator, has selected RADCOM's Omni-Q solution for end-to-end monitoring of its IMS network. KPN will deploy the distributed system, based on RADCOM's powerful R70 probes, to facilitate fault management, service performance analysis, troubleshooting and pre-mediation.
Omni-Q's ability to correlate network-wide sessions involving TDM, VoIP and IMS protocols in a multi-vendor environment is an important component in KPN's rollout strategy. KPN's new IMS platform will replace the existing SS7 technology, making the carrier one of the first operators worldwide to adopt and deploy an operational IMS core.
"Omni-Q's deployment fits well into KPN's strategy of ensuring service quality. RADCOM's customer-centric attitude along with Omni-Q's flexible architecture and comprehensive network and service monitoring solution gives us the tools and information we need to confidently roll out services over IMS. We evaluated many solutions, and Omni-Q was definitely the most advanced," said KPN's Director of Service Operations.
"As a new technology, IMS posed many deployment and monitoring challenges. KPN performed an exhaustive evaluation process, and we are pleased to have come out on top, proving that our Omni-Q solution is among the most advanced," said David Ripstein, RADCOM's CEO. "KPN is one of the most innovative and demanding service providers in the world. We are honored to enter into this partnership and are convinced that IMS represents a major area of growth for the company."
The OmniQ solution is designed and commissioned by Heynen who also takes care of the support. The inputs of the design were the functional demands of the different user groups and the KPN network architecture. Based on Radcom's product platform a tailored solution is created that meets the current demands of KPN and is ready for future expansions.
The Omni-Q solution is fully scalable and enables easy monitoring of all network activity. Omni-Q detects and analyzes voice, video and fax conversations, and also captures and reports signaling information, quality of service metrics and perceived call quality, giving service providers crucial wide-ranging visibility into their network operations. The deployed solution includes the R70 probe, a unique monitoring and analysis tool that, in one box, meets the increasing demands of evolving network infrastructures and services.
