op5  to Deliver Tailored Monitoring and Management for Mobile Operators

New solutions that allow for proactive Quality Management of Mobile Data use
will launch at Mobile World Congress 2011

STOCKHOLM - (February 10, 2011) - op5, a developer of enterprise IT/IP network monitoring solutions, together with mobile IP management experts IQMTEL that will enable op5 to deliver industry tailored solutions that monitor and manage IP core and backhaul networks for mobile broadband operators.

As a mobile broadband explosion and migration to IP is happening now, mobile network operators require better solutions for evaluation of backhaul PM-data and true end user experience measurements.

“With new devices such as smartphones, iPads and other mobile platforms entering the networks, users of these devices expect the same quality of service they are accustomed to with fixed-line networks - for business critical applications, as well as for entertainment, multimedia and gaming," said Jan Josephson, CEO and co-founder, op5. “Our partnership with telecom monitoring specialists IQMTEL enables us to deliver monitoring and management tools for Telecom Service Providers.”  

op5 Monitor, already the perfect tool for monitoring heterogeneous IT environments, is now available in a solution developed specifically for the mobile telecom Industry. op5 Monitor lets operators monitor any device with an IP address and predict, detect and address issues before services are impacted. Easy to use SLA monitoring reports ensure that services are delivered in accordance with the committed service levels.

Instead of expensive, custom tailored proprietary solutions, op5 now can offer total monitoring of the whole network (IP-based), including video, telephony and broadband via mobile phone. The service provider will be able to be proactive, plan and do advanced troubleshooting.

Standard RAN-counters for mobile broadband end user measurements does not give the whole picture as large numbers of customers can experience poor performance without any indications from alarms or counters. Intelligent automated and user activated mobile network measurements are used to show actual performance and for easy analysis of customer problems.

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 14-17, op5 together with IQMTEL will launch the IQ App that enables the mobile data end user experience and is targeted to telephone, mobile and broadband service providers. The solution includes Intelligent Network Visualization, Value Added Storage (real time data in database), and Automatic CM Verification.

“To deliver a superior mobile Internet experience to demanding customers, new intelligent solutions for quality management are needed,” said Mats Nordström, CEO of IQMTEL. “With IQMTEL’s technical understanding of network design and architecture and now our partnership with op5, we can provide complete state of the art tools for network performance management and true mobile network end user experience measurements.”
