Various connection technologies
The range of possible applications includes measurements on analogue (a/b) and digital (ISDN S0, ISDN S2M) lines, on air interfaces (GSM, GPRS, UMTS, LTE) and LAN/WAN interfaces, including SIP trunking.
Thus, data can be collected which is relevant in a real mixed environment. This approach provides an assessment of service quality from the customer perspective, because all the system components involved in an end-to-end connection are included in the test.
Further application scenarios include:
- Performance analyses of various technologies (narrowband, broadband, mobile)
- ... and various applications (Triple Play, E-Commerce, SAP, Citrix, etc.)
- SLA management
- Load and stress tests
- Network and efficacy analyses
- Examination of settlement accuracy
- Safety checks
- TÜV certification
Often, where problems in the network are suspected, or an accumulation of errors, it is necessary to carry out in-depth measurements for the analysis taking into account the exact circumstances. In this case, with kyago targeted short-term campaigns can be defined or individual test connections can be followed right on the screen.
To make meaningful and economic use of test connections, we need a range of automatic, computerised mechanisms. Routine works should not burden the user. The specialist should only be brought in in cases where expert knowledge and experience are really needed. kyago has taken these requirements into account in the concept.
Network-wide examinations can be defined, performed and evaluated per mouse click. The measurement units work autonomously without an operator required on site. All periodic activities are controlled automatically from the central server. Manual works can be performed from the comfort of the workstation in the office.
The routine measurements can be defined in a simple way and run without further supervision. The user receives the results in the form of reports and in clear, graphic dashboards.
If quality objectives are to be controlled, routine measurements can be provided with threshold values and controlled. In this case, the term monitoring is used. If a test connection fails to meet the requirements, the user is immediately informed by alerts and detailed results are made available for this connection.
