01 / PROBLEM
Network capacity continues to be upgraded in order to provide better/faster Internet services (e.g., U-HD video) to more subscribers. However, due to the complexity of Congestion Control algorithms, it is often difficult for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to determine how much network Capacity is sufficient to guarantee performance. This is despite the best efforts in the Industry to probe and measure network activity on an Internet connection (and even a data packet) level. Difficulties in relating what is happening on the network to why its happening have repercussions both for the network expansion budget and/or the subscribers experience, a challenge that is quickly becoming insurmountable with increasing speed and numbers of connections.
02 / SOLUTION
There are several analytical methods that are available when dimensioning the network or solving performance problems. The most accurate solution is network analysis but the execution times required to evaluate the network are prohibitive - for example, it can take about an hour (or more) to analyse 5 minutes of network activity on a 1 Gbps link. Our advanced analytical solution SureLink-XG allows Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to evaluate individual subscriber performance with the same level of accuracy at a fraction of the current execution time. For example, it takes less than 45 secs for SureLink-XG to perform the same calculation that the fastest network simulators perform in more than an hour! This speed makes it possible to analyse ultra-fast links on a daily basis!
03 / HOW IT WORKS
SureLink-XG auto-configures its network performance calculations based on simple inputs such as the number of active connections. This reduces implementation costs as the required inputs are already available from the widely deployed network monitoring technologies. In addition, the modular architecture of SureLink-XGs computational engine makes it easier and faster to match its mathematical models to reality (e.g., implementations in the Linux Kernel). SureLink-XG produces 100% accurate results for each Internet Connection down to the level of each packet sent over the network! This enables CSPs to make informed business critical decisions when providing Internet Services. SureLink-XG is now more than 60X faster than the fastest commercially available network simulators!
