Empirix acquired real-time analytics solution company Verios Software & Systems to createa service operation center management (SOC) solution that will analyze and troubleshoot wireless network customer experience from their end-user devices to the core network in real time.

Integrating Verios’ and Empirix’s analytical, troubleshooting, monitoring and management capabilities will give wireless providers unprecedented capabilities for managing their networks from their customers’ perspectives. The integration will provide a complete end-to-end vision from access to core network. This will enable mobile service providers to identify and focus on their most profitable customer segments, most notably roaming customers who are likely to have service issues on the radio access segments of wireless networks.

“The radio access network is a vital, expensive and often unpredictable link in the mobile network. Verios provides insight that enables network operators to enhance service levels and predictability of service for their customers,” said Empirix CEO John D’Anna. “Verios’ solution provides complete visibility into radio access network operations, down to the individual user. Integrating that functionality into our IntelliSight platform will enable wireless providers to know exactly what their customers are experiencing, when and where. At the strategic level, that intelligence will help providers target their investments at the areas most likely to yield more revenue.”

As the number and type of mobile devices increases, a true, real-time view of transaction activity in the radio access network is becoming crucial to providing a first-rate customer experience. The approach Verios has taken to this challenge – real time, scalable analytics with easy drill down – make it a natural fit with IntelliSight. An innovative approach to network and service management, IntelliSight is a big data, analytics platform that provides a multi-dimensional vision of which applications, services and devices users prefer; what usage trends are emerging; and how to optimize ROI on infrastructure investments.

Based in Dublin, Ireland and founded in 2009 by Gerard Carroll, Mike Manchip and David O’Loghlin, Verios takes a “Big Data” analytic approach to managing the increasingly complex radio access network environment, where an ever increasing array of mobile devices connect to the core network elements that provide services. Like IntelliSight, Verios’ Vision Platform is specifically designed to provide customer-level detail in high-volume distributed networks. Conventional radio access network management solutions can only sample customer segments, and most cannot provide intelligence in real time.

“Empirix and Verios have complementary visions of service performance management and how to help providers deliver outstanding customer experiences,” said Verios Founder and CEO Gerard Carroll. “Unifying our respective approaches to SOC – Empirix across the core network and Verios across the radio access network – will give providers immediate, detailed insight for responding to their most lucrative customer segments’ needs.”

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...

APM tools are your window into your application's performance — its capacity and levels of service. However, traditional APM tools are now struggling due to the mismatch between their specifications and expectations. Modern application architectures are multi-faceted; they contain hybrid components across a variety of on-premise and cloud applications. Modern enterprises often generate data in silos with each outflow having its own data structure. This data comes from several tools over different periods of time. Such diversity in sources, structure, and formats present unique challenges for traditional enterprise tools ...
