About this talk

5G networks are fundamentally transforming how telecommunications networks operate and thus changing how they should be instrumented and monitored. This 45-minute webinar will focus on a Containerized Visibility Solution (CVS) for both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G networks. With a CVS, operators gain real-time control with a scalable solution to achieve continuous visibility across the environment with reductions in monitoring overhead. The solution leverages cloud native sensors/agents to remotely access, capture and continuously monitor networks – from the Remote Radio Head (RRH) to anywhere in the core. For optimal efficiency the solution relies on a messaging queue for real-time control of the network sensors, and for streaming data to analytics and tools. Attendees of this webinar will learn: - How a composable visibility solution allows sensors to do more than capture packets – generate metadata, flow statistics and map dynamically changing topology - How to access, capture and manage critical 5G protocols such as eCPRI, NGAP, XnAP, PFCP, in virtualized and cloud-native deployments - The fundamental directives and tasks that the deployed sensors can complete and communicate to tools and analytics - Why protocol specific metadata, topology, flow, etc. provides invaluable context for managing your 5G cloud deployment in real-time - Why previous monitoring methods with traditional tools will not scale in these environments
