London-based provider of testing and security solutions, Spirent has marched into its new project, “Promise.Assured” to offer testing solutions for 5G, cybersecurity, autonomous vehicles and virtualization among other business opportunities by taking a more practical approach within the telecommunications industry. Spirent can test network functions and equipments when they are first established followed by testing to validate them once they are installed and provisioned while they are operating in the network.
Bill Mortimer, Spirent’s VC of strategic marketing stated, “'Promise. Assured' is our commitment to our customers who develop devices, networks and applications and operators, including communications service providers, enterprise and governments” According to Mortimer, "Promise. Assured" helps developer customers to accelerate time to market, reduce cost and time for developing and launching new products accompanied with enhancing the experience of their operator customers by reducing operating costs and improving network performance
Spirent emulates network operations for millions of subscribers consuming extraordinary and IMS services in 5G, eHRPD, GSM, LTE and Wi-Fi Networks. Once the service is installed and there are diagnose services that need to be fixed, Spirent tests it on steady intervals to evaluate service levels and fix the detected problem.
He further cited Spirent’s landslide system that is used to test mobile core, diameter networks, IMS and carrier Wi-Fi systems by computing network functions and user activity at scale and further validates their customers’ product performance. These installed capabilities in the operational network can test the network at any time to measure service levels or validate the network performance.
Spirent views lifecycle services assurance as "the next competitive background” and plans to deliver real-time operational analytics that can identify and address performance and customer experience issues before they become problems. With help of automation, analytics and active testing technologies, Spirent plans to address real-time operational analytics that can identify and address performance and customer experience issues before they become problems.
Mortimer stated that machine learning algorithms and active test technologies are required elements that are significant for enabling autonomous service assurance which should detect irregularities from a wide variety of information sources across the network.
