Automated Remote Monitoring Improves QoS in Public and Private 5G Networks

Dec. 13, 2022
This Industry 4.0-compliant active monitoring suite enables network operators to remotely monitor and visualize key network performance indicators.

The Overview

Keysight Technologies has launched a set of 5G solutions for automated service assurance, end-to-end quality-of-experience (QoE) and quality-of-service (QoS) verification, and active testing in private and public 5G networks.

Who Needs It & Why?

Many private 5G networks depend on continuous ultra-reliable QoS to maintain targeted levels of operational efficiency twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week (24/7). Factories, ports, smart warehouses, and energy utilities are examples of industries that deploy private 5G networks to wirelessly manage a complex web of interconnected sensors, robots, and instruments, collectively referred to as the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Under the Hood

This suite of products for maintaining QoE and QoS in 5G networks begins with the new Industry 4.0-compliant Nemo Industry Probe, which supports early detection of issues such as interference originating from multiple sources. Accumulated, these interferences in the network lead to QoS issues that adversely impact the efficiency of an operation.

Keysight combines the new Nemo Industry Probe with Nemo Cloud and Nemo Analyze to provide advanced capabilities that enable network operators to remotely monitor and visualize key performance indicators (KPIs) such as latency, data connection quality, voice and video quality, and data throughput. These measurements consider issues such as interference introduced by wideband noise from machinery and other RF signals that user equipment (UE) may encounter in highly complex environments.

Also included in this launch is the new Nemo Active Probe, an advanced 5G active remote-monitoring solution that's suited for large-scale deployments in fixed and mobile locations such as airports, stadiums, shopping malls, and train stations. The monitoring solution enables wireless service providers and national regulators to assure 24/7 operational network service, meeting service-level agreements (SLAs) established to ensure adequate 5G connectivity levels.

In addition, Keysight offers a cohesive, software-focused portfolio of private 5G network lifecycle management solutions for advanced network visibility, end-to-end performance, and security assurance, as well as network optimization across the protocol and application stack.
